• Does my Business come under GST yet?


I run a consultancy business which serves the student community, to help them get assistance with college research and admissions. My company is incorporated in 2017. It's in Bangalore Karnataka. The company name is: Admissions Square Educational Consultancy LLP

My annual transactions haven't crossed 20 Lacs, per financial year as of now. However, I have to generate Invoices/legal agreements for my clients who happen to be residents of different states in India.

So, can you clarify if I come under GST or not? If yes, then what shall I do, as till now I haven't filed for GST.

Thank You

Since your transactions have not crossed Rs 20 lakhs you don’t need registration under GST

1. Consultancy business of any kind comes under GST. HOWEVER, IF Annual Turnover is less than 20 Lakhs, THEN it is not mandatory to register under GST.

2. However, it would be prudent to register under GST and file nil returns, as sooner or later you would be covered under GST.

If business transactions crosses 20 Lakhs you are liable for the GST.

We advice to get the GST Registered and you can file nil for GST. But if you cross any time you are liable to pay for the entire transaction. We will ensure smooth process of GST.

In the GST Regime, businesses whose turnover exceeds Rs. 20 lakhs (Rs 10 lakhs for NE and hill states) is required to register as a normal taxable person. This process of registration is called GST registration.

For certain businesses, registration under GST is mandatory.

It appears your business do not come under the list of GST registrations to be done mandatorily.
