Now, businesses can get GST registration within 3 days! Here’s how

Businesses which will provide Aadhaar number while applying for registration under the Goods and Services Tax will get the approval in three working days. The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) last week notified Aadhaar authentication for GST registration with effect from August 21, 2020.

The notification also provides that in case businesses do not provide Aadhaar number, then GST registration would be granted only after physical verification of the place of business. Finance Ministry sources said the GST Council in its 39th meeting held on March 14, 2020, had approved operationalisation of Aadhaar authentication for new taxpayers.

However, its implementation was postponed due to the lockdown on account of COVID-19 pandemic. For a person opting for Aadhaar authentication for new GST registration would get it within just three working days, if no notice is issued and would not need to wait for physical verification
