GST Enrollmentto restart in few weeks: Finance Ministry
The process to enroll taxpayers on the Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) portal, which was suspended on April 30, will start again in a few weeks, the revenue department said today.
More than 60 lakh taxpayers enrolled on the GST portal between November 8, 2016 and April 30, 2017.
The enrollment process closed with effect from May 1 and the data of all those signed the enrollment form would be migrated to the new GST system.
The portal said the enrollment window will reopen at a later date for taxpayers who could not enroll themselves as well as for those who enrolled but did not sign the enrollment form.
“The GST enrollment process on GSTN portal has been temporarily suspended and would begin in a few weeks,” the revenue department, which comes under the finance ministry, said in a tweet.
Meanwhile, the Revenue Department is running GST awareness campaigns across the country. Indirect Tax Committee of the ICAI has also come out with certain presentations on GST migration/ enrollment process, to facilitate the taxpayers.
Existing taxpayers who are registered under Excise, Service Tax and State Tax Laws such as VAT, Entry Tax, Luxury Tax and Entertainment Tax, and those who have received SMS/ E-Mail with Provisional ID and Password can enroll with the GST Common Portal using their Provisional ID and Password.
Taxpayer needs to understand that enrollment at GST Portal does not mean completion of GST Registration. For existingtaxpayers registered with various tax authorities to whom GST will be applicable; post implementation of GST Laws are required to update & validate certain information/ documents, as prescribed under the GST Laws.This process of updating & validating the data will mean conversion of GST Enrollment to GST Registration .
