What are the Documents Required for GST Registration

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR GST REGISTRATION

The CGST Act, 2017, provides that every supplier shall be liable to be registered under this Act in the State or Union territory, other than special category States, from where he makes a taxable supply of goods or services or both, if his aggregate turnover in a financial year exceeds twenty lakh?rupees (subject to certain exceptions). This means that a supplier is liable to compulsorily obtain GST registration only if his aggregate turnover exceeds rupees twenty lakhs. However, he may take a voluntary registration, even if his turnover does not exceed rupees 20 lakhs.
