We know that registration under GST is perpetual and does not require any renewal. However, there are scenarios when a person’s registration can be cancelled by an assessing officer. Let us understand the scenarios of GST registration cancellation.
|Scenarios of GST registration cancellation by an officer|
|The business has been discontinued or transferred fully, or amalgamated with another entity, demerged or disposed of|
|There is a change in the constitution of the business|
|A registered person has failed to comply with the GST provisions|
|A composition tax payer has not furnished returns for 3 consecutive quarters|
|A regular dealer has not furnished returns for a continuous period of 6 months|
|A person who has taken voluntary registration has not commenced business within 6 months from the date of registration|

|Registration has been obtained by fraud, wilful misstatement or suppression of facts|
|The benefit of input tax credit or reduction in rate of tax has not been passed on to consumers in the form of reduction in prices|
