GST registration cancellation is the process of cancelling or withdrawing the GST registration. It may be needed when a business stops running, closes, changes its organisation, or changes hands.
1. Voluntary Cancellation: A registered user can cancel their GST registration on their own if they no longer meet the requirements or if they want to stop being responsible for GST.
2. Mandatory Cancellation: The tax authorities can also cancel a taxpayer's GST registration if they find that the taxpayer broke GST rules, didn't follow the rules, or is no longer allowed to be registered.
3. Application for Cancellation: The user needs to send an application for cancellation to the tax officials in order to get rid of the GST registration. Most of the time, the application is made online through the GST platform or the website of the tax department.
4. Final Return: Before starting the cancellation process, the user must file all outstanding GST returns, including the final return, which lists all the supplies made and received up to the date of cancellation.
5. Clearing Dues: Before asking to remove your GST registration, you should make sure you have paid any unpaid taxes, interest, penalties, or other expenses.
6. Process of Cancellation: Once the tax authorities get the request for cancellation, they look it over and may do any necessary checks or investigations. Once the request to stop is accepted, the taxpayer is told that the GST registration has been cancelled.
7. Input Tax Credit (ITC) Reversal: If a taxpayer's return is cancelled, the person must reverse any unused input tax credits (ITC) for goods or services held in store or used for business.
8. Giving up your GSTIN: When a taxpayer's GST registration is cancelled, they must give up their GST Identification Number (GSTIN) and stop using it for any GST-related tasks.
Reason for Cancellation
1. Discontinuation of Business Operations: A company's GST registration may be revoked if it stops operating or closes permanently.
2. Change in Business Structure: The GST registration may need to be cancelled and a new registration sought under the new structure if there is a change in the legal form of the business, such as converting from a partnership to a company or merging with another organisation.
3. Transfer of Business Ownership: If a business is sold, passed down via family members, or acquired through any other means, the prior owner's GST registration may be revoked, and the new owner may need to reapply for GST registration.
4. Non-Compliance with Mandatory Registration Requirements: Registered taxpayers have the option to revoke their GST registration if they no longer satisfy the prerequisites for registration, such as dropping below the turnover level.
5. Non-Compliance: The tax authorities have the right to terminate a person's GST registration if they consistently fail to file their GST returns or adhere to the requirements.
6. Non-Operation of Business Premises: The tax authorities may begin cancellation procedures if the registered taxpayer does not conduct business from the stated business premises or refuses to grant access for verification or inspection.
7. Unlawful Activities or Non-GST Compliant Behaviour: The tax authorities have the right to revoke a registered taxpayer's GST registration if it is discovered that they are engaging in unlawful activities or purposefully avoiding GST compliance.
8. Voluntary Cancellation: A taxpayer has the option to voluntarily cancel their GST registration if they no longer choose to do so or if they are qualified for alternative tax programmes that are better suited for their company.
