GST Certificate: Advantages

Every GST-registered business unit receives the following benefits:

  • They will be identified as a lawful supplier of goods or services, which improves business dependability and authenticity. If you sell to businesses, you must have a GST certificate. 
  • They will be legally authorised to collect tax from clients and, as a result, to reimburse the procurers or recipients for the taxes received on the delivering goods or services. 
  • Have the ability to claim an input tax credit for taxes paid on profits as well as taxes paid due to the sale of goods or services. 
  • On a national scale, the input tax credit can be transferred from sellers to receivers without interruption.

GST turnover threshold

The following are the general guidelines: 

  1. Service Earners: Over Rs 20 lakhs per annum is required to obtain GST registration. The threshold is Rs 10 lakh in a few states. 
  2. Goods Dealers: The maximum in this situation is over Rs 40 lakhs annually. 

Regardless of the limits, certain entities, such as persons who use e-commerce for supply, non-residents, or casual taxable people, must register for GST.

Validity duration 

If the registration request is filed within 30 days of the due date, the GST registration certificate is effective from the date when the individual becomes liable for GST registration. If not, the validity period commences on the date the certificate is issued, as specified in CGST Rules 9 (1), 9 (3) and 9 (5).

If an application comes under situations of officer delay under CGST Rule 9 (5), the official must provide the approved registration certificate within three business days of the time specified in the same subrule. 

If issued to all usual taxpayers, the certificate has no limited time for expiration. The GST registration would remain valid as long as it is not surrendered or revoked. Because a casual taxable person’s GST registration is only valid for 90 days, the certificate of registration becomes void after that. However, the taxpayer can prolong or renew its validity till the expiration of the validity period. 

GST Registration Certificate contents 

The GST registration certificate includes the main certificate as well as two annexures, Annexures A and B. 

The following is the primary GST registration certificate’s content:

  • Registration Type.

  • The date the certificate was issued.
