GST Registration Rules

A. Mandatory Registration – Compulsory Registration

After understanding and knowing the GST, the most important question comes who should compulsorily register for GST and who does not. So the main basis for registration in GST is – Total Annual Sales / Annual Turnover of your business.

Starting from April 1, 2019, all businesses whose annual sales are more than 40 lakhs (20 lakhs in some north-eastern states) will have to be compulsorily registered under GST and follow the rules of GST. Here are some things to keep in mind in this new GST limit –

  • The limit of 40 lakhs will start from the new financial year of 1 April 2019.
  • This limit is applicable only on Sale of Goods, it is not applicable for services.
  • This limit does not apply even when there is Inter State Supply.
  • With this, the following will also have to take Mandatory GST Registration –
  • Non Resident Indian (NRI)
  • E-commerce agencies
  • Entities supplying goods and services through e-commerce operators.
  • Person eligible for TDS (TDS Deductor)

B. Voluntary Registration 

Generally, if the annual sales of your business does not exceed 40 lakhs / 20 lakhs then you do not need to get GST registration. But even if it is not mandatory, if you want to get GST registration, then you can do voluntary registration.

It is important to note one thing that if you get GST registration once, after that you will have to follow the rules of GST like everyone else. Further, even if the annual sales of the business fall below the Threshold limit, there will be no difference. Along with this, the business also gets many benefits from voluntary GST registration. like –

  • Benefits of Input Tax Credit
  • Interstate supply without any restrictions.
  • Freedom to trade through an e-commerce website.
  • To be legally recognized as a supplier of goods and services.
