There is a difference between cancelling a GST registration and modifying a GST Registration. We’ll go through the steps involved in cancelling your GST registration in this article.
# What Is Cancellation Of GST Registration?
When you cancel your GST, you’re essentially giving up your GST number and choosing not to participate in the GST programme. Certain companies must register for GST to operate. You will not be a registered person under the GST system and will no longer be required to pay or collect GST as a result of the cancellation of GST.
If you continue to operate your company after the GST has been cancelled, you may be subject to heavy income tax penalties. In India, the cancellation of GST registration is the responsibility of the tax official. When a taxpayer registers voluntarily, a cancellation request may only be filed one year after the taxpayer first registers.
# What is an ARN Number?
With every online transaction, you get an ARN (acquirer reference number), which is unique to you. Aside from refund requests, this number is only given to your bank and merchant when you pay for anything. In visa or MasterCard transactions, an ARN number is generated when funds move from the seller’s bank account to the payment gateway and then to the purchaser’s bank. These special numbers allow you to track your transaction in the event of a banking or merchant account problem.
# What Purpose Does ARNs Serve?
Refund transactions on online goods may be tracked using ARN codes. A successful company relies heavily on providing excellent customer service.
There are many uses for ARNs.
- Transactions involving a credit card
- Transactions involving a debit card
- A transaction involving digital payments
- Partially resolving disputes
Fraud or Unauthorised transactions are always possible with so many different kinds of online transactions taking place every day. It is the responsibility of both customers and sellers to reduce the use of fraudulent payment methods and transactions.
# How to find out the status of your GST registration

# Track GST Registration Application Status before Login
Here is a guide on how you can check your GST Application Status or GST Registration Status before you log into the GST portal or without logging into the GST portal:
You may track your application status by visiting the GST Portal and selecting Services > Registration > Track Application Status
Choose ‘Registration’ from the Module drop-down menu.
Enter the ARN or SRN you got when you submitted your GST Registration through email. Also, input the Captcha code and simply click on search in the application.
When a GST registration application is submitted via the MCA portal, a service request number (SRN ) is created.
The phases are colour-coded based on the current state of the application.
Until you reach Stage 3, for example, your status will be green. Once you do, however, it will become grey.
The ARN will have one of the following statuses:
- Pending for Processing: The Tax Officer has not yet processed a new registration application that was successfully filed.
- Site Verification Assigned: The Site Verification Officer is designated when a registration application is flagged for a site visit and verification.
- Site Verification Completed: Site Verification is accomplished when the Site Verification Officer sends their report to their Tax Officer.
- Pending for Clarification: The applicant receives a notification from the tax officer asking for clarification.
- Clarification filed: Pending for Order: An applicant has filed a clarification with the tax officer and is expecting a response.
- Clarification not filed: Pending for order: An order is marked as pending if the applicant fails to respond within a certain number of days.
- Approved: The applicant’s Registration ID and password will be sent to them after the Tax Officer has approved their new registration application.
- Rejected: It refers to a tax official’s decision to deny the registration application.
Check the progress of your GST registration application online and take appropriate action depending on the ARN status.

# What does each GST registration status mean?
You will be given written regular updates based on where your registration application stands at any given time. Your application’s progress may be easily assessed by deciphering your status. When you check the status of your GST registration, you will come across the following terms:
- Provisional status
This implies your application hasn’t been submitted yet. However, a provisional ID has been issued to you as a result of your application being submitted successfully.
- Pending for verification status
If your application has reached this stage, it has been submitted successfully. However, this hasn’t been confirmed yet.
- Validation against error status
This indicates that the PAN information you supplied does not match the information given by the IT department, which has resulted in this status. You should continue to correct your application as soon as possible after reading this status.
- Migrated status
This notification lets you know that your application for GST migration was successful.
- Cancelled status
If your application has a cancelled status, it means that it has failed. This implies you’ll have to reapply after fixing the issues, or you won’t be eligible for GST registration under the current GST regulations.
Plan your next steps based on your GST registration status. Since you must submit GST within a certain timeframe, you should begin the procedure as soon as you learn of your current situation.

# GST Return Filing process further simplified
- GST returns may now be filed quarterly by regular taxpayers who have a turnover of Rs 5 crores or less, up from the previous maximum of Rs 1.5 crores. These taxpayers, on the other hand, must pay their taxes regularly using a challan form. In the first case, only B2C supplies are reported whereas, in the second, both B2B and B2C supplies are reported.
- Monthly filings are now required for regular taxpayers with a revenue of more than Rs 5 crores, according to changes suggested by Shri Nandan Nilekani. There would be an Invoice used to guide the procedure.
- To save taxpayers money on interest, amendments must be made by submitting a form called an amendment return, and any payments will be made via this form
- According to the proposal, filers of NIL returns (those who made no purchases or sales during the tax year) would be able to submit their returns by sending an SMS.
Taxpayers who file their returns quarterly will like the new way of doing things.
# Easy compliance
Since the turnover limit for submitting quarterly returns has been raised from Rs. 1.5 crores to Rs. 5 crores, the filing burden has been lowered for over 91% of the country’s taxpayers. Because the IT systems will operate more effectively under a balanced load, there will be fewer crashes. How the proposed monthly tax payment fills reconciliation gaps and impacts ITC applications remains to be seen. The probable challenge may be seen between quarterly and monthly return filers when the supply takes place between the two.
# On GST Registration
- Taxpayers having numerous places of business in the same State/Union territory may choose to register in multiple locations. Previously, it could only be used by companies with numerous locations, each in a different state.
- E-commerce operators needed to have compulsory GST registration only on those non-exempt goods.
- For six states – taxpayers in Assam, Sikkim, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand & Himachal Pradesh- the threshold for GST exemption was raised from 10 lakhs to 20 lakhs.
