GSTIN

Wondering what the GST identification number is? Until GST was introduced, the respective state tax authorities issued a special TIN to all suppliers listed under the formal VAT statute. Likewise the Central Board of Excise and Custom (CBEC) issued a company tax identification number to service providers. Under the GST system, all taxpayers enrolled are integrated into a common forum for enforcement and administration purposes, and registration is issued under a single authority. Around 8 million taxpayers moved into GST from different platforms. A unique Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) is allocated to all of these businesses. GSTIN is the unique registration number of 15 digits for all GST registered individuals/entities. The 15 digits represent various things like the respective state code, the applicant’s PAN details, etc.
