TIN required?

Keshav udata




My business requires bringing products from outside Karnataka to increase sales and save cost. Do I need Karnataka TIN even though my business has not crossed Rs. 5,00,000 turnover yet as pre-requistite. Can you bring products without TIN in the Karnataka state?

VAT registration is compulsory for your business since you are trading interstate. Minimum exemption limit is not applicable on dealer involved in interstate trades.

You can refer to this discussion for further clarity, VAT registration provisions.

Hi Mr.PS,

We have a Pvt Ltd Company registered at Tamilnadu and already had TIN and CST there.  We are operating our office here in Bangalore, so, we need to get a new TIN number here in Bangalore.  Came to know that, resolution letter is enough to apply for new TIN.  Kindly advice the procedures.
