GST Registration and Filing

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a comprehensive indirect tax on the supply of goods and services in India. It was introduced on July 1st 2017, replacing a multitude of indirect taxes levied by the central and state governments.

Who needs to register for GST?

Any person or business whose annual turnover exceeds the threshold limit of Rs.20 lakhs (Rs.40 lakhs or Rs.10 lakhs, as may vary depending upon state and kind of supplies) is required to register for GST. This includes businesses engaged in the following:

  • Sale of goods
  • Supply of services
  • Import of goods
  • E-commerce businesses
  • Casual taxable persons

Documents required for GST registration:

  • Aadhaar card
  • PAN of the applicant
  • Proof of business registration or Incorporation certificate
  • Bank account statement
  • Proof of constitution of business
  • Digital signature certificate (DSC)
  • Letter of authorization (if applicable)

Benefits of GST registration:

  • Reduced tax burden
  • Streamlined compliance
  • Increased competitiveness
  • Easier access to credit
  • Improved cash flow

GST Filing:

GST registered businesses are required to file their GST returns on a regular basis. The frequency of filing depends on the type of business and the turnover. Here are the different types of GST returns:

  • GSTR-1: This is a monthly return that details the outward supplies made by a business.
  • GSTR-3: This is a quarterly return that reconciles the details of outward supplies (GSTR-1) and inward supplies (GSTR-2).
  • GSTR-9: This is an annual return that provides a summary of the tax liability for the entire year.

Penalties for non-compliance:

Businesses that fail to comply with GST filing requirements can face penalties and fines. These penalties can range from late filing fees to imprisonment.
