In the GST Regime, businesses whose turnover exceeds Rs. 40 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. If the organization carries on business without registering under GST, it will be an offence under GST and heavy penalties will apply. GST is the biggest tax reform in India, tremendously improving ease of doing business and increasing the taxpayer base in India by bringing in millions of small businesses in India. By abolishing and subsuming multiple taxes into a single system, tax complexities would be reduced while tax base is increased substantially.

- Simple and easy online procedure The entire process of GST (from registration to filing returns) is made online, and it is super simple. This has been beneficial for start-ups especially, as they do not have to run from pillar to post to get different registrations such as VAT, excise, and service tax.
- Unorganized sector is regulated under GST In the pre-GST era, it was often seen that certain industries in India like construction and textile were largely unregulated and unorganized. Under GST, however, there are provisions for online compliances and payments, and for availing of input credit only when the supplier has accepted the amount. This has brought in accountability and regulation to these industries. Let us now look at disadvantages of GST. Please note that businesses need to overcome these disadvantages to run the business smoothly.
- Registration and Filing Returns Under GST Made Simple as Everything is Done Online Be it GST registration or return filing, a registered business owner can do everything online. This is certainly opposed to the earlier indirect tax regime, where a business owner had to get himself registered separately for various indirect taxes.

According to Economic Survey 2017 – 2018, post the implementation of GST, there has been a 50% increase in the number of indirect tax payers. Furthermore, there has been an increase in the number of voluntary registrations, especially small enterprises that sell goods to large enterprises. These small entreprises want to come under the ambit of GST and claim input tax credit benefit.
