Hi Jeevan,

If you sell on Amazon, you need to take VAT registration. Reason being that you never know from where you get buyer.

The minimum limit is only if your sell within Karnataka, but you will be selling out of Karnataka also through Amazon.

You need to have a commercial space to get VAT registration and yes inspector will come for inspection.
