I thought the cost of Vat registration was highest in Karnataka. The cost of registration is extremely high in Maharashtra. How can small trader do business in Maharashtra.
The cost involved is not friendly with entrepreuners and startups. The cost is significant and can even have impact on idea of starting a business!!!
Small trader can take the compulsary vat regiostartion. In that need an local sale of Rs 10laks or more or interstate sale of Rs 1 laks or more. For that Compulsary registration goverment fees is only Rs 525/-.
