Casual taxpayers who conduct businesses occasionally can now register for the goods and services tax (GST), which will allow them to execute work that comes their way once in a while.
A taxpayer must go for registration as casual tax payer at least five working days prior to the commencement of business. A casual taxpayer is a person who occasionally undertakes business transactions in a state or union territory where she has no place of business. A tax payer will also have the option to extend the registration duration once for a maximum of 90 days before the expiry of the initial 90-day period for which registration was granted in doing business in India.
Rather than registering as a regular taxpayer and being required to file ‘nil’ returns during off business months, casual taxpayers can enrol for a limited period of time, GSTN noted in its statement. After a taxpayer has opted to register as a ‘casual taxpayer’, a challan has to be generated after giving estimated values of supplies and tax and cess liability during the period of registration. The taxpayer has to make advance tax payment using the payment modes available at the GST portal, thereby completing the second stage of registration, it added in company formation in Delhi.
