Introduced recently by the Government of India in July 2017, GST or Goods and Services Tax has effectively simplified the whole process of taxation by doing away with the multiple taxes complexities and increasing the tax base. The GST reform has brought many small businesses under the taxpayer base by widening the annual turnover threshold. This tremendously improves the ease of doing business and hence encourages the upcoming businesses to flourish ethically.
Every business and individual involved in buying or selling of goods or providing services or both has to register for GST. Entities would not be able to collect GST from customer or claim input tax credit of GST paid if they have not registered under GST. Entities can even be penalized in case of lack of GST registration. Moreover, it is compulsory for an entity to register for GST once the threshold turnover crosses or the new business setup is expected to cross the prescribed turnover.
