How Much Do You Know about Additional Place Of Business In GST?


What is additional place of business in GST?

Answer: Since the GST registration is PAN based and state-specific, the supplier has to register in each such state. Therefore, a business having multiple branches in various states have to take separate state-wise registration.

On the other hand, a business with multiple branches in the same state can declare one place as a principal place of business and other branches as an additional place of business. However, a business entity having a separate business vertical in a single state can opt for separate registration. This is as defined in section 2 (18) of the CGST Act, 2017.
