What You Need to Know About the New GST Registration in 2022


Taxpayers register themselves for GST via the GST registration process. Once they have successfully registered, a special registration is assigned to them. This number is known as the “Goods and Services Tax Identification Number” (GSTIN). The 15-digit number is free of charge. You can verify your GST number and collect all the information. 

It allows businesses to collect taxes on the government’s behalf. After GST registration, the person can collect taxes from the customers. He/she can also claim the input tax credit on the tax he/she pays. Let’s get into the details of the new GST registration.

People who meet the requirements below should register for GST:

  • Businesses with turnover above Rs. 40 lakh in normal states. This is for the supply of goods only.

Problems Faced at GST Portal and their Solutions

Error Display on the GST Portal:

Clear the cache if the portal displays an invalid provisional ID and password. You need to delete your browser history. Log in to the website again. You will receive a 10-digit token ID. If you get a 9-digit token number, place a zero at the end. Contact the GST helpdesk if you have any further problems.

OTP Issues: 

 You might not get the One Time Password (OTP) on the registered mobile number. The reason could be the “Do Not Disturb” status of the number. Fix the issue and start the registration process for GST again. For email OTP issues, check the spam folder.
