The GST registration certificate serves as proof that a business in India is legally registered under the GST law. Any business with a turnover exceeding the threshold for GST registration must register under GST. Additionally, certain businesses such as casual taxable persons and non-resident taxable persons are also required to register.

In recent updates regarding GST registration:

- Starting from January 1, 2022, CBIC has made aadhaar authentication mandatory for applying for the revocation of cancelled GST registration under CGST Rule 23 in REG-21.

- Taxpayers have been given an extension until September 30, 2021, to revoke cancelled GST registration if the initial cancellation falls between March 1, 2020, and August 31, 2021. This extension is applicable under Section 29(2) clause (b) or (c) of the CGST Act, as mentioned in CGST notification number 34/2021 dated August 29, 2021.

- The due date for filing an application for revocation of cancellation of registration between April 15, 2021, and June 29, 2021, was June 30, 2021.

- The time limit for taking actions, replying, or passing orders as per Rule 9 of the CGST Rules, 2017, between May 1, 2021, and May 31, 2021, has been extended to June 15, 2021.

The GST registration certificate, issued in Form GST REG-06, contains important information such as the GST Identification Number (GSTIN) and the principal and additional places of business. It is available for download only on the GST Portal, as it is not issued physically by the government.

This certificate applies to various types of taxpayers, including regular, TDS and TCS applicants under GST, those who need to obtain a unique Identity Number under Section 25(9) of the CGST Act, non-residents providing OIDAR services, and taxpayers who migrated from the pre-GST laws. The certificate is signed or verified by the tax officer before being sent to the taxpayer.

Displaying the GST registration certificate at the primary place of business and other additional places of business listed in Form GST REG-06 is mandatory under CGST Rule 18(1). Failure to do so can result in a penalty of up to Rs.25,000.

If there are any amendments to the GST registration particulars, the taxpayer can download a fresh GST registration certificate with the updated information from the GST portal.

The validity of the GST registration certificate depends on whether the registration application was submitted within thirty days of becoming liable for GST registration. If submitted within the specified timeframe, the certificate is valid from the date the person became liable. Otherwise, the validity starts from the date of granting the certificate under CGST Rules 9(1), 9(3), and 9(5).

For regular taxpayers, the certificate does not have an expiry date as long as the GST registration remains valid and is not surrendered or cancelled. However, for casual taxable persons, the registration remains valid for a maximum of ninety days. After that, the registration certificate becomes invalid. The taxpayer can extend its validity or renew it before the expiration date.

The GST registration certificate contains the GSTIN, trade name, legal name, type of business constitution, address of the principal place of business, date of liability, period of validity, type of registration, and details of the approving authority. It also includes Annexure A and Annexure B, which provide additional information such as the GSTIN, legal name, trade name (if applicable), additional places of business, and details of the persons-in-charge.

To obtain a GST registration certificate, eligible individuals can apply on the GST portal at www.gst.gov.in. After proper verification by the officer, the registration will be approved. The registration is effective from the date when the liability for registration arises if the application was submitted within thirty days. If there was a delay in submission, the registration is valid from the date of grant.

Existing registered taxpayers can download the certificate in Form GST REG-06 from the GST portal. It is available for download only on the portal, and a physical certificate is not issued. The process involves logging in to the GST portal, navigating to 'Services' > 'User Services' > 'View/Download Certificate,' clicking on the 'Download' icon, opening the downloaded PDF document, and printing it. The printed certificate should then be prominently displayed at all places of business in the State or UT.
