QuestionDo I have to get registered even If I am not a dealer?
Simple AnswerYes you will have to get registered if you are into the business or providing services i.e. a professional. This is subject to the limits. The limits are as below.
- Purchases or Sale (of Taxable goods) >= 5000
- Purchases (of All goods) >= 4,00,000
The wordings of Rule 3(1)(b) are as below
In any other case, including the case where a dealer has not become liable to pay local body tax under clause (a), and the turnover of purchases of goods specified in schedule A, in a year, is not less than Rs. 5000, and the turnover of all his sales. or the turnover of all his purchases during such year, is not less that Rs. 4,00,000. (4,00,000 shall be 1,50,000 if population of corporation is below 20 lacs)
Thus a person need not be a dealer to be liable for registration.
