  • The application must be duly signed or verified through EVC.
  • It must be submitted at least five days prior to the commencement of business.
  • In case, it is a foreign business entity (incorporated or established outside India) the application for registration shall be submitted along with its tax identification number of that country (similar to our PAN) or its PAN (if it has one).
  • An advance deposit of tax (based on estimation) must also be submitted along with the application

Final Registration

Final registration will be made in the same way as in the case of resident taxpayers as follows:
  • If the person wishes to register under GST, then he will submit an application electronically using the FORM GST REG–26. Any information must be furnished within a period of three months
  • If the information is correct and complete, the final GST registration will be given in FORM GST REG-06
  • If the information is not correct, then the officer will issue a show-cause notice using FORM GST REG-27. A reasonable opportunity of being heard will be given after which the provisional registration will be cancelled through the FORM GST REG-28
  • If the applicant’s reply is satisfactory then the show cause notice issued can be nullified by issuing an order via the FORM GST REG- 20
  • The application for registration made by a non-resident will be signed by his authorized signatory who must be a person resident in India with a valid PAN.
Note: EVC is Electronic Verification Code, a new mode of electronic verification based on Aadhar card. All forms uploaded in the GST Portal must either be signed or verified through EVC.
