Sub : Goods and Services Tax (GST) – Registration – reg.
This is in continuation to our earlier circular of Nov. 21, 2016 wherein we had mentioned about registration of company details in GST portal www.gst.gov.in , by using Provisional ID (VAT) and password provided by State VAT authority. We have now received the following update on GST registration.
- GST enrollment window will re-open on June 01, 2017 for 15 days. Accordingly, companies who have not yet registered in GST portal can register in these 15 days.
- For registration purpose, provisional IDs issued to Central Excise and Service Tax business entities registered in ACES (Automation of Central Excise and Service Tax – aces.gov.in) till January 31, 2017 and not utilized by the entities are being cancelled as either not required or as non-usable, but the Provisional IDs to entities registered in February and March 2017 are still active.
- In case an entity needs a provisional ID to migrate to GST, please contact jurisdictional Central Excise / Service Tax officer to get the new provisional ID. In addition, an email be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org the entity’s registered email ID in ACES. Kindly quote in the email subject line “PID required to migrate to GST” and provide your Central Excise / Service Tax Registration Number(s) in the email. Any issues faced earlier in enrolment may also be given in the email.
Members may kindly note the above and get registered in GST portal. Members may also inform their suppliers/vendors in India to register in GST portal, so that they can avail input credit on supplies.
Thanks & regards,
COUNCIL FOR LEATHER EXPORTS
