Taking registration in GST is a very simple process, and the comfort of the taxpayer has been kept in mind while designing the procedure. You can take  registration  from  the  comfort  of  your  home  by  filing  an  online application on the common portal you need is a valid PAN, email id and a mobile number. Once these 3 details are verified, you will be required to furnish other details relating to your business.There is no need to submit any physical documents (unless a query is raised and documents asked for) and all necessary documents can be scanned and uploaded. If there are no queries, you will receive your registration online within 3 working days from submission of online application.

It’s simple. But what will happen if you don’t get registered?

More than anything, getting registered is for your own benefit. If you are liable to take registration but don’t get registered, you will not be able to enjoy the benefit of input tax credit. Not only you, but any registered person, purchasing  from  you  may  not  be  able  to get the input  tax credit.  Not obtaining registration, though liable to do so, would also attract penalty.

Getting registered would lead to growth in one’sbusiness.Prospective buyers, who are registered under GST, will prefer to buy from suppliers who are also registered under GST, as this would entitle them to the input tax credit. This also means that one iscontributing his bit towards nation building, by ensuring that appropriate taxes are collected and paid to the government.

All traders are requested to register at an early date without waiting for the last date.
