GST Registration:


Single PAN based registration and single return for SGST/UTGST, IGST and CGST. There will be single registration for each State even if they have multiple units/branches/divisions within one State. Within one State or Union Territory, a taxable person can have more than one registrations if they have different ‘business verticals’. ‘Different business vertical’ means different type of business like different product or service, different type of customers, different types of distribution channels etc.   If a taxable person obtains multiple registrations within a State or Union Territory, each such unit will be treated as separate taxable person for purpose of GST. There will be separate registration in each State where the taxable person has trading units/manufacturing units/ service supplying units.
