Hi Pulkit and All,

Query is if set of people has parternship firm registered in state say X and few active members who are in other state say Y want to contribute and increase the business, does VAT/TIN number available in state X can be of use to run in state Y. Or is it mandatory to obtain VAT/TIN number in state Y.

Firm in State X gets goods[dresses/dress material from other states] and sell in retail in local market and to other customers who are in different states through facebook/market place, same approach wanted to be applied in state Y. What are the things to be taken care of to ensure things are clearly executed.

State Y = Karnataka

Please help. Thanks in Advance.

VAT is state specific. If you wish to store the materials in state Y ie Karnataka, you need to have VAT registration in Karnataka.

You can sell and purchase online from your state X vat registration but since vat is state specific, you need to make sell from state x and good should be stored at state x. If you wish to store materials at state Y and trade in materials stored at state X, you need to take vat registration in state X.

Hi Pulkit,

Thanks for explaining clearly, this puts an end to confusion.

We like to approach you for VAT registration work.

Have read about exemption limit and must conditions for VAT registration in this forum. Now need to find commercial place which is afforadable.

Hope GST if it comes in existence may eliminate dual registrations.

If GST comes in existance, dual registration will be eliminated. But declaration of additional places and IGST will be like CST, so on documentation part I am not hoping much.

Regarding commercial place, you need to have a commercial place. Flat will never work. Some LVOs do give registration in independent houses depending on nature of business.
