India’s biggest tax reform – Goods and Services Tax (GST) – came into effect on 1st July, 2017. Registration under GST has been made mandatory for businesses whose annual turnover is over Rs. 20 lakhs (Rs. 10 lakhs in the North East). Now, all entities with GST registration have to file GST returns, irrespective of the business undertaking, sales or profitability during the return filing period. So, even if a dormant business has obtained GST registration, it must file GST return.
