Cancel Your GST Registration

GST registration can be cancelled by individuals or corporations. This involves filling out FORM GSTR-16 on the GST system and providing a legitimate cancellation reason. The taxable person must also state any outstanding liabilities at cancellation. After reviewing the cancellation application, the tax office issues a cancellation order if necessary. Following the cancellation order, the taxable person must file a GSTR-10 final return within 30 days. This ensures tax obligations are met before cancellation. We provide complete cancellation help at ‘CA Near By You’. From preparing and submitting the cancellation application to assuring compliance with Section 29 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act of 2017, our team helps customers terminate GST registration smoothly.
