GST Registration Amendment

Amendment of Registration Details

Under GST regime, registration is compulsory to get GST Identification Number (GSTIN). While filing details and uploading documents for GST registration, there are chances that somebody has entered wrong details or missed out some important details.  Further, the details which were originally uploaded might get changed like Address, Key persons of enterprise, Mobile number or E-mail may get changed over the period of time.

To amend these details on GST Portal, a form REG-14 has been prescribed which can be submitted online with all necessary details and documents. The amendments for GST registration are categorized into three, which describes the level of approval and time period to amend the fields. While applying for amendment in particular fields of a registration form, it is mandatory to mention the “Reasons” for amendment in GST registration process.

Three types of amendments which can be done

Change in Core Field: Core fields are those fields which require approval from Jurisdictional officer. The changes in Core field includes the legal name of the business, addition/ deletion of stakeholder, the address of the principal place of business, and any additional place of business. It takes 15 days to get approval from a proper office to amend the Core Fields.

Change in Non-core Field: There are some fields which don’t require any approval from a proper office and amendments in Non-core fields can be easily done online. All the fields except those, which are covered under core fields come under a Non-core field.

Change in Email or Mobile Number: The change in email or mobile number requires a verification by OTP (One-Time Password) after online verification on common GST portal.

Fields which cannot be amended

1. Modification in Principal place of business from one state to another state. Since GST number is state specific, the shifting of principal place of business from one state to another state shall require separate registration in another state.

2. Change in PAN is not allowed. GST number is based on PAN of taxpayer. If PAN of taxpayer is changed, then he shall make a new application for GST number.

3. Change in Constitution of business e.g. from Proprietorship to Partnership is not allowed since it required change of PAN.
