GST Enrolment – Part 1: Creating Profile On GST Common Portal
Enrolment under GST means validating the data of existing taxpayers and filling up the required key fields. All existing taxpayers registered under any of the earlier Indirect Tax Acts will be transitioned to GST. Enrolment for GST will ensure smooth transition to GST regime. The data available with various tax authorities is incomplete and thus fresh enrolment has been planned. Also, this will ensure latest data is available in GST Database without any recourse to amendment process.
GST System portal has been created for this purpose as no paper based enrolment will be allowed. There is no deemed enrolment on GST system portal and therefore enrolment under GST for existing Taxpayer is inevitable. There is no fee for the enrolment with GST System Portal. The enrolment process is common for all taxpayers whether be a State VAT/CST taxpayer or be a Service Tax payer or Excise Duty payer.
There will be common registration, common return and common Challan for Central and State GST.
All existing taxpayers and VAT dealers will be given a provisional ID and a password by respective authorities.
