As per the rules of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), a person who is not eligible to be a GST dealer, or has violated any GST provisions can have their GST registration cancelled by the authorities. However, if the person wishes to continue their business activities, they must apply for a revocation of cancellation of their GST registration.
If the revocation of cancellation is not granted, the person will no longer be able to trade legally under the GST Act. This can have serious implications for small and medium businesses, and start-up founders in India.
Denial of revocation of cancellation of GST registration affects the right to trade of the business owner or start-up founder. In this article, we will discuss the various aspects of GST registration, cancellation, and revocation, and the impact of denial of revocation on the right to trade.
GST registration is mandatory for businesses and individuals who are engaged in the supply of goods and services in India. GST is a single tax that replaces multiple taxes previously levied by the central and state governments, such as excise duty, value-added tax, and service tax.
Under the GST regime, businesses and individuals with an annual turnover of over Rs. 20 lakhs (Rs. 10 lakhs for North Eastern states) are required to register for GST. GST registration provides the dealer with a unique GST Identification Number (GSTIN), which is used to file GST returns and claim input tax credits.
If a person is no longer eligible to be a GST dealer, or has violated any GST provisions, the GST authority can cancel their GST registration. This means that the person will no longer be able to trade legally under the GST Act, and will be required to pay any outstanding taxes and penalties.
The GST authority can also cancel the registration if the business has not filed GST returns for a continuous period of six months or has not commenced business within six months of registration.
If a person wishes to continue their business activities, despite the cancellation of their GST registration, they can apply for a revocation of cancellation of their GST registration.
The application for revocation must be made within 30 days of the cancellation of the GST registration. The GST authority will then review the application and grant the revocation if it is satisfied that the person is eligible to continue as a GST dealer.
If the GST authority denies the revocation of cancellation of GST registration, the person will no longer be able to trade legally under the GST Act. This means that they will not be able to issue GST invoices, claim input tax credits, or charge GST on their supplies.
This can have serious implications for small and medium businesses, and start-up founders, as they may not be able to continue their business activities without a valid GST registration.
Furthermore, denial of revocation of cancellation can also lead to a loss of credibility and reputation for the business or start-up. Customers may prefer to deal with businesses that have a valid GST registration, as it provides them with a sense of security and reliability.
In conclusion, denial of revocation of cancellation of GST registration can have serious implications for small and medium businesses, and start-up founders in India. It is important for businesses to ensure that they comply with the GST provisions and maintain a valid GST registration to avoid cancellation and revocation issues.
Additionally, businesses should seek professional advice and guidance to ensure that they comply with the GST laws and regulations, and avoid any legal or financial implications.
