GST Registration: FAQ

GST Registration

What Is GST Registration?

The historic reform in the country's taxation system, GST (Goods & Services Tax), was introduced in India on July 1, 2017. GST was founded on the principle of “one nation, one market, one tax.” It aimed to simplify the complex tax structure and bring a unified tax regime. Further, GST is a value-added tax that is charged on the goods and services supplied at each stage of production or distribution.


Now comes What is GST registration?


When a business's annual turnover surpasses a specific number (such as Rs. 40 lakh, 20 lakh, or 10 lakh), the business owner must complete the registration process under GST. This registration is commonly referred to as GST registration.

It's not just a choice; It's a legal obligation


Engaging in commercial activities without proper GST registration can be considered a violation of the law. In essence, this step is essential for both legal compliance and the smooth functioning of the taxation system.

Benefits of GST Registration

  • Input Tax Credit

One of the significant benefits of GST registration is the ability to claim Input Tax Credit (ITC). Businesses can offset the GST paid on inputs and purchases against the GST collected on sales. This helps reduce the overall tax liability and eliminates the cascading effect of taxes, making goods and services more affordable.


  • Availability of Composition Scheme

For small businesses with a turnover below a certain threshold, GST offers a composition scheme. This simplifies compliance requirements and allows for paying taxes at a lower rate. 

  • National Presence

A unified tax system called the “GST replaces various state and federal taxes.  With GST registration, businesses can operate seamlessly across state boundaries hassle-free. 

  • Compliance and Transparency

GST registration necessitates maintaining proper books of accounts and filing regular GST returns. This promotes financial transparency and ensures businesses adhere to tax regulations, reducing the likelihood of tax evasion.

  • Regulation of Unorganized Sectors

Brings accountability and regulation to previously unorganized industries through online compliance and payment systems.

  • Reduces Corruption and Sales Without Receipts

It aims to reduce corruption and unreported sales by promoting transparency and compliance.
