GST Registration Online for New User on GST Portal


Under the GST system, registering a business online is a mandatory step for any taxpayer or business owner with an annual revenue of more than Rs. 20 lakhs. A unique number GSTIN is issued to any business owner only after completing the online GST registration process. The GSTIN number is a crucial component of GST filing since it is required by the taxpayer at every stage of return filing, bill production, and invoice processing. Business owners must visit the official GST registration website in India to complete all of these procedures.
