GST how to register: The process of migration of all existing Central Excise and Service Tax assessees to Good and Service Tax (GST) started from 7 January 2017. Assessees would be provided a provisional ID and Password by CBEC in order to migrate to GST. Assessees who have a valid PAN card associated with their registration would be eligible to get the Provisional IDs. The assessees are then required to use this Provisional ID and Password to login to the GST Common Portal. After logging in they then have to fill and submit Form 20 along with necessary documents.
These are the steps to register for GST:
1) Log on to ACES portal using the exisitng User ID and Password.
