What is registration on the GST?
GST is a multi-stage tax which is paid at all points of sale. It has replaced other indirect taxes, such as service tax, Value Added Tax ( VAT), central sales tax, excise duty, extra customs duty, etc. The Government passed the Goods & Services Act, which came into force from 1 July 2017, to incorporate GST as a comprehensive levy. Each year, the day is celebrated as ‘GST Day.’
The GST Act initially specified that companies with an annual turnover of Rs 20 lakhs would need to register as a taxable company. But, as agreed in January 2019 at the 32nd GST Council Meeting, states have been given options to either opt for new limits or proceed with previous ones. The current cap has come into effect as from 1 April 2019. Most states have chosen to increase the cap for the selling of products to Rs 40 lakhs. Nevertheless, the threshold thresholds for service providers were not changed.
