In this article, we will discuss what a business owner needs to do if he/she has to change or update the GST registration details.

There may be a need to do so due to mistakes made while applying for GST registration or due to an actual change in details during the course of the business. 

Who can update GST registration details?

A business can update or correct its GST registration details when:

  • The application is being processed and
  • The business is already registered under GST (application is already processed)

Check out the ClearTax GST Registration Services. We help you to get your business GST registered and obtain your GSTIN easily.

What are details that can be changed or updated?

A business owner can apply for change(s) of the following items:

  1. Name of business*
  2. Address of the principal place of business
  3. An additional place of business
  4. Addition, deletion or retirement of partners or directors, Managing Committee, CEO i.e., people who are responsible for day to day affairs of the business*
  5. Mobile number or e-mail address of the authorized signatory**

*Points (1 & 4) – Any change(s) done in one state will be reflected across all the states

**Point (5) – The change(s) can be made by simply submitting the FORM GST REG-14 and verifying online through the Common Portal.

What about changes other than the above-mentioned?

Change(s) other than the above-mentioned (Points 1-5) will be amended immediately on submitting FORM GST REG- 14 on the Common Portal.

No verification by a GST officer will be conducted.

Can the PAN (Permanent Account Number) be changed or updated?

No. If there is any mistake in the PAN number, the applicant will have no other choice except to file for a fresh registration using FORM GST REG-01.

This is because GSTIN number is based on the PAN.
