Validity Period For a GST Registration Certificate

GST certificates of regular taxpayers have no expiry date. As a result, as long as the GST registration is not terminated or surrendered by the GST authorities, it will stay valid.

Though, the validity of GST registration of non-resident taxable persons is limited to 90 days. The taxpayer can either renew the validity of the GST certificate or prolong it when it expires.

If any detail on the GST certificate is incorrect, the individual can edit the core field on the GST website. Before a new amended GST certificate can be downloaded, tax officials must authorise any modifications to the core field. 

A GST certificate contains the following key fields:

  • Principal place of business
  • Any change in the trade/legal name of the business, not involving a change in PAN
  • Deletion/addition of Karta/Partners/Members of Managing Committee of Associations /Managing Directors/Chief Executive officer/Board of Trustees or equivalent etc.
