GST modification - an overview

GST registration modification is a process where a taxable person under GST is allowed to make any change or amendment in his GST registration. After obtaining GST registration, if there are any changes in the information furnished by the taxable person at the time of registration, he can make an application for the GST amendments. The taxable or registered person is required to file an application in Form GST REG 14 to the proper officer within fifteen days of the occurrence of those changes.  

On filing of application by the taxable person, the jurisdictional officer is required to verify the application and approve the amendment within the next fifteen working days in form GST REG 15. On approval, the amendment will be made applicable in the GST registration certificate.  

Every registered person and a person to whom UIN has been assigned (for example, UN Bodies and Embassies) are eligible to file GST amendment. 

What are the fields (core and non-core) in GST registration? 

When a taxable person applies for a GST registration, he is required to furnish specified information on the GST common portal. That information is divided into two fields i.e., core field and non-core field.  

If there is any change in the core fields, the taxable person is required to obtain prior approval of the jurisdictional officer. However, no approval is required in case of non-core field. Any amendment in the non-core field will be updated automatically after filing of the application under GST REG 14.  

The information considered as Core-fields are as follows:  

  • Name of the business (legal name if there is no change in PAN)  
  • Any addition or deletion in stakeholders like promoter, Karnataka, CEO 
  • Principal and additional place of business (other than any change in the state)  

The information considered as Core-fields are as follows:  

  • Any addition or deletion or modification in bank details of the taxable person  
  • Business details  
  • Description of goods and services  
  • State specific information (not being a change of state)  
  • Authorized signatories or representatives  
  • Details of existing stakeholders 

Details that can be modified in GST registration  

A taxable person can make changes in the core and non-core fields of GST registration.  

However, the following three details which cannot be changed in a GST Registration and a fresh application for GST registration must be made: 

  1. Change in PAN 
  2. Change in the constitution of business resulting in change of PAN 
  3. Change in Place of Business from one State to Another
