GST Enrollment Will Reopen Soon: Revenue Department

Good news for Indian small and medium business owners and startup founders! The revenue department has announced that the Goods and Services Tax (GST) enrollment will reopen soon, providing an opportunity for those who missed the previous deadlines.

Since GST was introduced in India, businesses have been required to enroll and acquire a GST identification number (GSTIN). However, some business owners and startup founders may have missed the deadlines or were unable to enroll due to various reasons. The revenue department has now decided to reopen the enrollment process to give businesses a second chance.

The GST enrollment process will be conducted online, making it easy and accessible for businesses to register. The revenue department has also promised to provide assistance to those who require it, ensuring that the enrollment process is smooth and hassle-free.

Why Is GST Enrollment Important?

Enrolling for GST is mandatory for businesses with an annual turnover of over Rs. 20 lakhs. It is also compulsory for businesses that engage in inter-state trade, regardless of their turnover. Failure to enroll can result in heavy penalties and fines, making it crucial for all businesses to obtain a GSTIN.

Having a GSTIN also provides businesses with a range of benefits, including:

1. Ability to claim input tax credit on purchases

2. Increased credibility and trust among customers and suppliers

3. Access to online portals for filing returns and payments

4. Greater ease in conducting inter-state trade

5. Opportunities for business expansion and growth

What Do You Need to Enroll for GST?

The enrollment process for GST is straightforward and can be completed online. To enroll for GST, businesses will need to provide the following:

1. PAN (Permanent Account Number) of the business

2. Proof of business registration, such as a partnership deed or certificate of incorporation

3. Bank account details and IFSC code

4. Proof of business address, such as a utility bill or rental agreement

5. Contact details of the authorized signatory

It is important to ensure that all information provided is accurate and up-to-date to avoid any delays or issues in the enrollment process.


The reopening of GST enrollment is a great opportunity for businesses that missed out on previous deadlines. By enrolling for GST, businesses can access a range of benefits and comply with legal requirements. The enrollment process is straightforward and can be completed online with assistance from the revenue department if required.
