What is GSTIN?

Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) is a unique identification number (UIN) that is allotted to every taxpayer (Dealer, seller, or any taxpayer) registered under the GST Regime, and one can easily carry out GST Search by PAN.

The 15-Digit alphanumeric PAN-based code is generated to help the tax authorities maintain the GST payment and due records under a single platform to ease compliance and administration procedures. It comes under public information and can be used by anyone to check the authenticity of a business. The GSTIN replaces the multiple indirect tax numbers levied by the state and the Centre for VAT, Tax, Service Tax, etc., for a single business.

The idea of “One Nation-One Tax-One Tax Identification Number” is implemented in the form of GSTIN.

A business entity can have many GSTINs for its various branches. A separate GSTIN is required when dealing in the same business from a different state or Union territory in India. The companies already registered under the older systems, such as the Value-added Tax (VAT), have been automatically transferred to the GSTIN System and received their GST number. In contrast, those newly registered under the GST receive a new GSTIN after the completion and approval of their registration. The GSTIN Search by Name tool helps to search GST numbers by name as well.
