Understanding the GST Registration Cancellation

Indian companies and proprietors, engaged in transactions related to goods and / or services, have to be duly registered under the defined GST norms. At times, however, a business may need to cancel its GST registration for certain key-reasons, specified here-forth, where a Business is / has…:

  • not liable to be registered under the GST Act;
  • discontinued, demerged, or otherwise disposed-of;
  • transferred for any reason, including death of any individual;
  • amalgamated with other legal entity;
  • changed its constitution;
  • not furnished returns for straight six months;
  • not furnished returns for three consecutive tax periods;
  • obtained GST by means of fraud, willful misstatement, or suppression of facts;

…and various other reasons

GST cancellation can either be initiated at the sole discretion of Directorate General of Taxpayer Services (DGTS); or GST registered company / person can voluntarily apply for cancellation. In case of death of registered person, legal heirs can apply for GST cancellation.

Moreover, in case where DGTS cancels the registration there is a provision for revocation of the cancellation. On cancellation of GST registration, however, the company / person has to file a return that is termed as Final Return.

Essentially, cancellation of GST registration implies that the taxpayer will no more be a GST registered and shall not have to pay or collect GST thus, enabling businesses / persons to reduce their taxation related compliance.

Who can Cancel GST Registration?

*** Application for GST Cancellation (in case of voluntary GST registrations) can be made only after one year from the date of registration.

What People Frequently Ask…

What is cancellation of GST registration?

Cancellation of GST registration simply means that the taxpayer will not be a GST registered person / company anymore and will not have to pay or collect GST.

Why does a taxpayer wish to cancel GST registration?

Taxpaying persons / companies can cancel their GST registration primarily for these key reasons:

  • The business has been discontinued
  • The business has been transferred fully, amalgamated, demerged or otherwise disposed, however, the transferee (or the new company from amalgamation/ demerger) has to get its GST registered. The transferor will cancel its GST registration if it ceases to exist.
  • There is a change in the constitution of the business   (for instance: a private limited company has changed to a public limited company)
Why will the DGTS officials cancel GST registration?

The Concerned authorities can cancel the GST registration, if the taxpayer-

  • Does not conduct any business from the specified place of business OR
  • Issues invoice or bill without supply of goods and / or services (i.e., in breach of the defined provisions) OR
  • Infringes the anti-profiteering provisions (for instance: not passing on applicable taxation benefits to customers)
What is revocation of GST cancellation and when it is applicable?

Revocation of cancellation of GST registration implies that the decision to cancel the GST registration has been reversed and the GST registration is still valid.

Revocation is applicable only when the designated taxation authority has cancelled the GST registration of a taxable person / company at its own discretion. Such taxable person / company can apply to the concerned authority for revocation of cancellation within 30-days from the date of the cancellation order.
