What is GST Registration?

Goods and Services Tax is an indirect tax used in India on the supply of goods and services. It is a comprehensive, multistage, destination-based tax: comprehensive because it has subsumed almost all the indirect taxes except a few state taxes. Multi-staged as it is, the GST is imposed at every step in the production process, but is meant to be refunded to all parties in the various stages of production other than the final consumer and as a destination-based tax, it is collected from point of consumption and not point of origin like previous taxes.

Turnover Threshold: The registration under GST is mandatory for the business entities based on the criteria of turnover or activities. The business dealing in goods and those providing service have to mandatorily apply for GST Registration if their aggregate turnover for a financial year exceeds Rs.40 Lakhs. However, for business making supplies and providing services in the North Eastern States, the same is Rs. 20 lakhs. To avail its benefits, many businesses also obtain voluntary registration under GST.

The composition levy rates under GST are as follows:

 1% of the turnover for traders and other suppliers eligible for composition scheme registration.

 2% of the turnover for manufacturers apart from manufacturers of products not eligible for GST composition scheme.

 5% of the turnover for restaurant services.
