Goods and Services Tax, which is also known as GST, is an indirect tax applicable in India that has replaced many of the country's Indirect Taxes. On 29 March 2017, the Parliament had passed the Goods and Service Tax Act. and thereby, the Act came into force from July 1st, 2017. In simpler words, let's say, the Goods and Service Tax (GST) is an indirect tax imposed on the purchase of goods and services. The legislation has replaced many of India's existing Indirect tax rules as well.
GST registration seems to be the primary and necessary move for current taxpayers, under the GST rule. This is because they will not get a GSTIN number without registration of GST, which is set as a taxpayer's basic identification number. If you fill in the correct details in the registration form, then you are perfect to go on. But what if you have entered incorrect details or skipped some essential fields, which you have to fill? That's why there is another way for you to sort it out - The amendment of the GST registration.
Rule 12 and Form GST REG 14 provides us with a way to ease the challenges without visiting any government offices to fix the details. An applicant can update certain information and change the details without any authority's approval. Indeed, some fields need approval but the editing can be done online. When you apply the modifications that you want to make in the GST registration, then you have to mandatorily specify the reasons for the GST amendments. There are three types of amendments that can be done in the GST registration. Let's dive in to check out more about it.
Change In Core Fields: The Core Field revisions include the company's legal name, the location of the business (the main one), and any additional place where the business takes place. It almost takes 15 days to get permission to change the Core Fields.
Change In Non-core Fields: Several fields do not need approval from a proper office and while considering the non-core fields, it is easy to make amendments in the registration online. All fields except those occupied by core fields are all a part of the non-core field.
Change In E-mail ID or Mobile Number: Usually, when changing the email or mobile number, it requires an OTP on the GST portal after the online verification.
If any change in the GST registration is required, a taxpayer will be required to apply with the necessary documentation for change on the GST portal within 15 days. After the approval of the GST REG 14 amendment form, the modifications will be corrected in GST REG 06 form.
The application for registration changes can be held for 15 days. Nevertheless, if an applicant refuses to apply for whatever reason, it will immediately withdraw the request for amendments.
GST FORM REG-14 can be submitted in the event of any changes to the address of the primary place of business or any additional workplace. Proof of address for the new location should be given in the GST application for registration modification for address changes. The following are the proof accepted:
Required any document (latest Property Tax Receipt/Municipal Khata copy/copy of Electricity Bill) of the ownership of the premises.
A copy of the Rent or Lease Agreement is required along with any document of the ownership of the premises of the Lesso.
A copy of the Consent Letter with any document in regards to the owner of the premises of the Consente.This applies to the shared properties as well.
In this case, one can submit an affidavit along with any document like the Electricity bill.
Any address changes reported in the online GST portal should be updated within 15 days. The GST office will approve the change within 15 days after requesting a revision of the GST address. The date of alteration on the Officer's approval will be the day the incident warranting the change occurred.
After an online verification process, the approved Signatory may make any changes to the mobile number or email ID which are listed on the GST Common Portal, by using its digital signature. Mobile number or email ID changes do not allow an Officer to file a GST amendment application or check it. Usually, the changes made in the mail ID or the phone number will be called as the routine changes in the GST portal.
The core field revisions include the company's legal name, the location of the business (the main one), and any additional place where the business takes place.
