QuestionsCategory: GST RegistrationCancellation of GST Registration and subsequent re-registration.
Anirban Kar asked 5 years ago

I have been running a business and have been a registered tax payer since GST was rolled out. I have duly paid my taxes on time and have filled my returns as and when they fell due. The PAN I had given for registration is for my firm, I now wish to change it to my own name. The details in both the PANs are the same, just the former is “Firm” and the latter is “Individual”. Now I wish to cancel my existing registration and re-register my business using my own PAN Card. For
form-16, I will show dis-continuance of business for cancellation. Will it be a problem when I re-register? Will they question me? Will my Income Tax Returns be demanded? Kindly solve my queries.

You can go ahead and cancel the registration. There will not be an issue unless we show it in Income Tax Return correctly.
