WHAT IS GST REGISTRATION


GST has been introduced by Govt of INDIA by abolishing various indirect taxes like VAT, Service Tax, Excise duty etc. GST is subsuming multiple taxes into a single system.

ADVANTAGES OF GST REGISTRATION


 

  • GST is a transparent tax and also reduces number of indirect taxes. 
  • GST will not be a cost to registered retailers therefore there will be no hidden taxes and the cost of doing business will be lower.
  • Benefit to the people as prices will come down which in turn will help companies as consumption will increase.
  • There is no doubt that in production and distribution of goods, services are increasingly used or consumed and vice versa.
  • In the GST system, when all the taxes are integrated, it would make possible the taxation burden to be split equitably between manufacturing and services.
  • GST will be levied only at the final destination of consumption based on VAT principle and not at various points (from manufacturing to retail outlets). This will help in removing economic distortions and bring about development of a common national market.
  • GST will also help to build a transparent and corruption free tax administration.
  • Presently, a tax is levied on when a finished product moves out from a factory, which is paid by the manufacturer, and it is again levied at the retail outlet when sold. GST is backed by the GSTN, which is a fully integrated tax platform to deal with all aspects of GST.
