Overview of GST Modification

GST Modification refers to the process of making changes or amendments to the details provided during the GST Registration process or in the GST Certificate. GST Registration is mandatory for businesses in India that fall under the threshold limit of Rs. 40 lakh or Rs. 20 lakh for special category states. The GST Registration certificate contains various details such as the legal name of the business, address of the principal place of business, additional place of business, and other relevant details.

  • GST Modification can be done in case of any changes required in the details entered during GST Registration or to switch from composite to normal scheme or vice versa.
  • However, it is not possible to switch from normal to composite scheme. For instance, if there is any mistake in the information provided during the registration process, one can make modifications in GST Registration by filling out Form GST REG 14.
  • In case there is any mistake in the PAN details provided during GST Registration, one cannot make modifications in the same GSTIN.
  • Instead, one needs to apply for a new GST Registration and surrender the existing GSTIN with incorrect PAN details.
  • It is important to note that any changes or modifications required after GST Registration should be made within the relevant time period and with the necessary approval from the proper jurisdictional officer in case of core field modifications.
  • Non-core field modifications do not require approval and are auto-updated after successful filing.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
