Step 3: Input the two OTPs you received via email and mobile. Select Continue. Click Resend OTP if you have not received the OTP.

Step 4: At this point, you will be given a 15-digit Temporary Reference Number (TRN). This will be sent to your email and cell phone as well. Make a note of the TRN. Within the next 15 days, you must complete the part-B details.

Step 5: Go to the GST portal once more. The 'New Registration' tab should be selected.

Step 6: Decide on a Temporary Reference Number (TRN). Click Proceed after entering the TRN and captcha code.

Step 7: An OTP will be sent to the registered mobile phone and email address. Click on Proceed after entering the OTP.

Step 8: The status of the application will be displayed as draughts. Select the Edit Icon.


Part B- 10 components

Step 9:
Complete all fields and attach all required documents. In 2020, the Aadhaar authentication section was added, and the bank account section became optional.

The following is a list of documents you'll require when filing for GST registration:

Photographs of the taxpayer's constitution

Proof of the business location

If desired, verification and Aadhaar authentication

Step 10:
Fill in the trade name, business constitution, and district in the Business Details box.

Note that the business's trade name is distinct from its legal name.

To opt-in or out of the composition system, pick 'Yes/No' against the field "Option for Composition." Select the sort of registered person, such as manufacturers, service providers of labour contracts, or anybody else who is eligible for the composition scheme.

Next, put the date the business started and the date when liability began. Also, if you choose 'Yes' for the kind of registration as a casual taxable person, generate the challan by providing the details for advance tax payment as per the GST law for casual taxable individuals.

Select 'Input service distributor' as the reason for registration under 'Reason to acquire registration' if that is the case at this time. Alternatively, there are numerous more solutions to consider.

Fill in the fields that display based on the selection made. If you choose 'SEZ unit,' for example, fill in the name of the SEZ, the approving authority's designation, the approval order number, and the supporting papers.

Choose the type of existing registration, such as Central Sales Tax, Excise Tax, or Service Tax, as well as the registration number and date of registration, in the Indicate Existing Registrations area. After that, press the 'Add' button.

Step 11:
Under the Promoters/Partners tab, enter the information for up to ten Promoters or Partners.

Personal information such as name, address, mobile number, date of birth, email address, and gender are required, as are identity details such as Designation / Status and Director Identification Number if the taxpayer is a company, whether or not the taxpayer is an Indian citizen, PAN, and Aadhaar numbers.

Fill in the stakeholder's addresses and upload a photo of them. You can only upload PDF or JPEG files with a maximum file size of 1 MB.

Make the necessary selection if the promoter is also the primary authorised signatory. To proceed, click the 'SAVE & CONTINUE' button.

Step 12:
Enter the Authorised signatory's information in the same way that you did for the promoters/partners in step 10.

In the case of a GST practitioner, enter the enrollment ID, and in the case of an authorised representative, enter the basic information as requested.

Step 13:
Enter the information for the Principal Place of Business.

The primary location within the state where the taxpayer conducts business is referred to as the taxpayer's principal place of business. The address where the company's books of accounts and documents are kept, as well as where the company's president or top management is based, is usually the principal place of business. Address, district, sector/circle/ward/charge/unit, commissionerate code, division code, and range code must be reported. Enter the taxpayer's official contact information as well as the nature of possession of the premises, such as rented, owned, or shared, and so on.

Following that, upload supporting documents, such as a consent letter or NOC for business on rented premises and proof of SEZ Unit/SEZ Developer approval for the premises, if applicable. Also, mark the Nature of business activities on the premises and enter any additional business locations. Then, click the 'SAVE & CONTINUE' button.

Step 14

Step 15: Next, enter the taxpayer's bank account information for up to ten bank accounts. The submission of bank account information has been made optional as of December 27th, 2018. If you do not report these details at the time of GST registration, you will be prompted to file a non-core amendment application to submit the bank details when you log in for the first time on the GST portal.

Step 16: Under the State Specific Information tab, enter the professional tax employee code number, PT registration certificate number, and State Excise License number along with the licence holder's name. Click the 'SAVE & CONTINUE' button.
