The change in GST registration details is required for numerous reasons such as no mention or wrong mention of trade name when original registration was done, subsequent change in the address of the business office, additional business place acquired, wrong mention of the constitution of business, subsequent change in registered email address or mobile number, etc. Such changes do not require the application for new GST number but a simple GST modification process in the original registration itself would suffice.
Types of Modifications
There are two types of amendments in GST registration available on the portal. They have been named as Amendment of Registration Core Fields and Amendment of Registration Non-Core Fields. Let us understand these amendments in detail.
[To all the newbies read our article on “GST Registration Step-by-Step Guide”]
The Core Field Amendments covers the following aspects:
- Any change in name of the business (if there is no change in PAN)
- Change in the place of business
- Addition/Change in Additional Place of Business (Other than a change in State)
- Addition or deletion of Partners or Karta or Managing Directors or Members of Managing Committee of Associations or Board of Trustees or Chief Executive officer or equivalent etc.
It is to be noted that in point (1) above if there is any change in the Permanent Account Number (PAN) then a new GST registration will be required. Hence, if there is a change in the structure of the business, i.e. if a proprietor business is converted into partnership firm or any partnership converted into a private limited company, this will result in the requirement of a new GST registration since there will be a change in the PAN of the business.
The Non-Core Field Amendments includes all fields other than the Core fields. The few examples of non-core fields are details of the authorized signatory, change in the details of promoter or partner or karta, etc. The change in the registered email and registered mobile number are also covered under the non-core field amendments.
There are different processes for amendment of core fields and non-core fields.
The core field amendments will require the approval of the tax authority. It is necessary to note here, that if a taxpayer has already made an application for amendment of core field and the application is under process, then the taxpayer cannot apply again for any core field amendment until the previous application is disposed of by the relevant jurisdictional authority.
In the case of non-core field amendments, the registration particulars are automatically updated after the submission of the amended information by the registered taxpayer on the portal. It does not require any tax authority approval.
