Registration of GST

Registering for GST (Goods and Services Tax) is a crucial step for businesses in India that are engaged in the supply of goods or services. Here’s a general overview of the registration process:

  1. Eligibility: You need to ensure that your business meets the eligibility criteria for GST registration. Generally, businesses with an annual turnover exceeding a certain threshold (currently INR 20 lakhs for most states) are required to register for GST. However, certain businesses are required to register for GST regardless of their turnover, such as those involved in interstate supply, e-commerce operators, and those liable to pay tax under reverse charge.
  2. Online Registration: GST registration is done online through the GST Common Portal ( You need to create an account on the portal and fill out the GST registration application form (Form GST REG-01).
  3. Documentation: Prepare the necessary documents required for registration, which typically include:
    • PAN card of the business/entity
    • Proof of constitution of the business (Partnership deed, Memorandum of Association, etc.)
    • Proof of principal place of business (Rental agreement, electricity bill, etc.)
    • Bank account details
    • Authorized signatory details
    • Photographs and KYC documents of the promoters/partners/directors
  4. Fill out the Application Form: Complete the GST registration application form accurately with all the required information and upload the necessary documents.
  5. Verification: After submitting the application, you’ll receive an Application Reference Number (ARN). The application will be verified by the GST authorities, and they may request additional information or documents if required.
  6. Issuance of GSTIN: Once the application is approved, a unique Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) will be issued to your business. This GSTIN will serve as your identification number for all GST-related transactions.
  7. Periodic Renewal and Compliance: Ensure that you comply with all GST regulations and file your GST returns on time. Also, keep your registration details updated and renew your registration as required.
