GST Online Registration – an Overview

GST, or the Goods and Services Tax, is the most recent addition to the Indian taxation system, and it is levied on the supply of goods and services. 

According to the GST rules, any business that sells goods and has a turnover of ₹40 lakh or more is required to register as a normal taxable entity. Similarly, a service provider with an annual turnover of more than ₹20 lakhs must also register for GST. Additionally, a special threshold of ₹10 lakh is fixed for those businesses operating in the northeastern states.

To guarantee that business operations run smoothly, GST online registration is required. It takes about 3-6 working days to complete the entire GST registration process. Further, businesses that operate without GST, are considered illegal and are vulnerable to hefty fines and penalties.
