The GST registration number (GST) Council has decided that businesses in the North-eastern and hill states with annual turnover below Rs.10 lakh would be out of the GST registration number net, while the threshold for the exemption in the rest of India would be an annual turnover of Rs.20 lakh.
Further, GST council also finalized the revenue levels for a taxpayer to opt for the compounding scheme. Small traders with revenues of Rs.20-50 lakh can pay a flat tax and do away with unnecessary paperwork.
GST registration number is expected to remove barriers across states and integrate the country into a common market. It will subsume most of the indirect taxes levied by the centre and the states, including excise duty, service tax, value added tax, entertainment tax and luxury tax. It will put the entire tax process online—right from registration, tax payment and tax return filing to refunds, audits and assessments.
GSTN has already launched a developer portal named www.developer.gstsystem.co.in for IT firms that want to develop GST-based applications for future GST compliances.
