After the last annual budget, a big tax reform was issued in the country. Every taxpayer in the country is supposed to pay this tax during every monetary transaction. Thus all the business entities providing goods and services fulfilling a certain criterion were supposed to register for GST.
Businesses with annual turnover more than Rs. 10 Lakhs in special states and Rs. 20 Lakhs in other states are eligible for GST registration. The business proprietary officer is supposed to apply for GST registration within the first 30 days of eligibility. Apart from the annual turnover criterion, there are various other conditions under which an entity may become eligible and the same have been mentioned in the GST Council.
