I am working for a USA based startup software company. Since they are not registered as any entity in India, I as working under a contract as a software consultant. My total receipts as a software consultant for the current year has exceeded 40 lakhs. 
I understand that software service export is a zero rated supply. My entire business turnover is completely software service exports only. But am I liable register for GST since my turnover exceeds 40 lakhs? Do I have to file GST returns declaring my export turnover, even though I don't have to pay any GST.
