Register under GST

Many dealers who were not registered under the previous regime have to register under GST due to the low turnover limit for GST Registration. These unregistered dealers may have stock of inputs, semi-finished goods or finished goods as on 1st July 2017 when GST came into force. These taxpayers must have also paid Tax under the previous regime on these purchases. The dealers who do not have bills/invoices for the tax paid on the inputs must file TRAN-2.

A taxpayer has to file Form TRAN-1 and GSTR-3B for the relevant month before filing Form TRAN-2.

This form has to be filed for every month in which such stock is sold up to December 2017.
