Overview

GST Registration

 Any supplier who carries on any business anywhere in India & whose aggregate turnover exceeds Rs.40 lakhs (w.e.f 1 April 2019) during a financial year is liable to get himself registered and obtain GSTIN. But, the mentioned limit is reduced to Rs 10 lakhs to the states specified in Article 279A (4)(g) of the constitution viz. Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Jammu and Kashmir, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura, Himachal Pradesh, and Uttarakhand. 

Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) or GST Number is termed as the unique identifier assigned to a business or person registered under the GST Act.
 
It is necessary to obtain GSTIN in case of a certain category of persons. The important categories are as follows:

  1. Persons who are required to pay tax under Reverse Charge Mechanism (RCM) or Persons who are required to deduct tax under GST (TDS)
  2. Persons who supply goods and/or services on behalf of other registered taxable persons whether as an agent or otherwise
  3. Input service distributor 
  4. Casual taxable persons or Non-resident taxable persons
  5. Electronic commerce operators required to pay tax under sub-section (5) of section 9
  6. Electronic Commerce aggregator 
  7. Every person supplying online information and data base retrieval services from a place outside India to a person in India, other than a registered person

Advantages

Removes Cascading effect

Cascading effect refers to tax on tax, it occurs when a god is taxed on every stage of its production, until it is sold to the final consumer. But this GST removes this cascading effect and reduces the burden of multiple taxes on the final consumer.

Increased exemption limit

Exemption limit has been increased for small traders or service providers where as if you consider earlier indirect tax structure, various indirect taxes had different sales turnover limits for registrations. Like, the turnover limits for registration in GST are higher but it exempts the small traders and service providers from paying GST.

Composition Scheme

Small business also gets the benefit of composition scheme which is introduced under GST. Small business owners registered under the composition scheme are required to pay a fixed percentage of tax on their turnover.

Less compliances

Due to GST, there is reduction in number of tax compliances related to tax returns. Earlier the business registered for various indirect taxes had to bear for multiple compliances.

Online process

Registrations and filing returns under GST can be easily done through online process. So there is no problem for a business owner that he had to get himself register separately for various indirect taxes.

Disadvantages

Tax burden on small and medium enterprises

Earlier the small and medium enterprises had to pay excise duty when the turnover exceeded Rs. 1.5 crore every financial year but under GST, businesses whose turnover exceeds Rs 40 lakhs are liable to pay GST.

More Compliances

The GST framework mandates that companies are required to register in all states they operate in.

Petroleum products not fall under GST slab

Petrol and petroleum products are not included under the GST slabs till now. States levy their taxes for this sector.

Training to Tax officers

There is need for providing adequate training to the government officers for practical usage and implementation of such system as the GST system is based on information technology.
