A Taxpayer registered under GST can make amendments to his registration by applying the amendment of registration.
There are two types of amendments in GST registration-
- Core Amendment
- Non-Core Amendment
Amendments in core areas are –
- Legal/trade name of the business changed, without a change in PAN.
- Addition/deletion of key stakeholders, i.e. partners, managing director, karta, etc.
- Additional place of business or principal place of business (other than a change in state).
Amendments in core fields require the approval of GST officials.
All the fields of the registration application other than the ones mentioned above in core fields are considered as non-core fields.
No approval is required from a tax official for changes made in these fields.
Amendments in the following fields cannot be made by applying amendment of registration
