A dealer can apply for an amendment of VAT registration in karnataka if there is-

a. change in address

b. when a dealer wants to deal in additional quantities or if there is change in quantities which he deals with

c. Change of the name of the business

d. Change of the constitution like increase or decrease of partners

e. If there is an additional place of business etc.

However it is difficult to get the amendment of a vat registration since the officers will always be busy or on leave. They dont have any dead line to complete these jobs. Also taking them to inspection is also not very easy, since they are not interested to come. There may also be other issues which may be raised by the officers.

In case of partnership firm if partner are change we can amend the Registration & as well as company we can amend the registration.

 But in case of Individual, we cannot amend if proprietor is changed. The registration has to be surrendered and new registration has to be taken on the name of new proprietor.

1. Karnataka VAT eregistration will registration certificate be sent before inspection of the premises?

2. Can we register before making a first sale?

No, registration certificate will be sent only after inspection by inspector. After inspection you have to pay security deposit.

Yes you can register even before first sale is made.
