Who needs to pay Value Added Tax VAT ?
VAT tax is to be paid by the seller of the goods. Therefore, it's the consumer who pays this indirect tax. The tax is collected by the seller of the goods and then pays the amount to the state government. Only those traders & manufactures selling the goods having turnover less than INR 5 Lakh ( Rs.10 Lakhs in some states) are exempt from collecting VAT.
How long does it take for a Value Added Tax VAT registration?
A VAT registration can be obtained within 10 to 15 days. At first, Provisional registration number is granted, within three to five working days. VAT department sent VAT official to visit place of business & verify all those relevant documents that were provided at time of registration of VAT. On the satisfaction of physical verification VAT department will confirm Provisional registration number as final & issue certificate for TIN registration.
