Established in 2017, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an indirect tax in India that is paid on the delivery of goods and services. This new tax regime has been introduced to bring transparency and to make the tax system more easy. GST has supplanted all other indirect taxes, including service tax, VAT, central excise, and so on. GST registration is required for enterprises with yearly sales of more than INR 20 Lakhs (INR 10 Lakhs for North-Eastern and hill regions).

After completing the form, you must verify your email address and phone number by entering the OTP that you received. You will receive an Application Reference Number (ARN) on your registered email and phone number after you have been validated.
Within 15 days of getting the ARN, you must submit the necessary documents.
The GST officer will review the information and approve the application after receiving the supporting documentation. The officer will request clarifications or further documentation if there are any inconsistencies or inaccuracies.
