You can get VAT registration even if your turnover is nill. To sell on Flipkart, Amazon or other online portal you need to have VAT.

You can get registration with turnover of 5 lakh too.

Wish you luck for you business!!!

What are the implications of failing to register under VAT Act?

I want to know the penalty imposed on an ice cream factory in Bangalore for the above.


Thanking you.

Hi Alka,

Incase of not registration, department may on suo moto register the company and collect VAT with interest and penalties.
