GST Registration Certificate is given to GST-registered individuals. Those that have a GST registration certificate are expected to show it prominently in their place of business. The method of obtaining a GST certificate is relatively simple. In this post, we’ll go over how to get your GST certificate from the GST Portal.

Introduction to GST Registration Certificate

A GST registration certificate in the form GST REG-06 is given to any taxpayer who has successfully registered under GST.

The registration certificate is only available for download on the GST Portal, and no physical certificates are issued by the government.

Regular, TDS and TCS applicants under GST, those required to obtain a unique identification number under Section 25(9) of the CGST Act, non-residents, including those providing OIDAR services, and taxpayers who migrated from pre-GST laws are all examples of taxpayers.

 This certificate must be shown at the taxpayer’s primary place of business, as well as any additional places of business specified on Form GST REG-06.

This is spelled out in CGST Rule 18, and any violation will result in a fine of up to Rs.25,000.

If issued to all normal taxpayers, the certificate does not have an expiration date.

The GST registration remains valid as long as it is not surrendered or canceled.

The registration certificate of a casual taxable individual becomes invalid after ninety days since the GST registration is only valid for ninety days.

However, at the end of the validity period, the taxpayer may extend or renew it.

 GST registration certificate Amendments

According to Section 28, the proper officer may approve or reject amendments to the registration particulars within 15 common working days of the date of receipt of the application for amendment, based on such information furnished either by the registrant or as ascertained by him.
