Value Added Tax (VAT/Sales tax) has been considered to be a major step an important development in the area of indirect tax reforms in India. Vat aims to tax only the value added at each stage of the product and not the entire invoice value. By ensuring that only the incremental value is taxed, vat eliminates the cascading effect of taxes on commodities, and thereby reduces the ultimate cost to the consumer.

VAT is a State subject and every dealer whether manufacturer or traderare mandatorily required to register with the Sales Tax Department, if the gross annual turnover exceeds the threshold limit provided in VAT rules. The threshold limit for registration varies from state to state; however in most of the states if the gross annual turnover of the manufacturer or trader exceeds Rs.5 lakhs per annum, registration under VAT is mandatory.

Any dealer having gross annual turnover of less than the threshold limit, may also apply for voluntary registration with the Sales Tax Department.

A dealer shall apply for registration within 30 days from the date of being liable to get registered.

Process & timeline

Value added tax registration comes under the purview of state governments, therefore time taken for getting registration certificate depends on the time taken by the department in processing the documents.

For example in the state of Delhi, we get provisional Registration number/TIN no.instantly after uploading the documents, and signed copy of the registration certificate is issued on satisfactory inspection of premises and due verification of requisite documents.

But, normally it takes 15 to 20 working days to getting registered under Vat / Sales Tax department.
