After a certain exemption limit, everyone needs GST registration for the operation of the company. For some it is compulsory to take, but for others it is necessary to take advantage of getting a GST registration.
Does a company with activities in more than one state require distinct GST Registration numbers for each state?
Generally, a single GSTIN is assigned to a single PAN. However, in the event that a businessman or service provider provides services in more than 1 State, they must bring a distinct registration amount for the other State in which they operate their company.
However, this clause will only apply if they have a distinct place of company from which to provide services or deliver products.
For instance, if Accounts Forum is a Bangalore-based firm providing services in Mumbai and Delhi, it will set up offices in that town at some point of the evolutionary process. When it has been established in more than one state, numerous registrations must be obtained; each of those registrations must be complied with.
What if a person is providing services or goods or both in multiple states but doesn’t have any separate office there?
The clause of separate registration in multiple cities is applicable only in case where they are physically present. Therefore, in this case you need to get registered in the state of your physical presence/ headquarter.
