GST Login – www.gst.gov.in – Register for GST Online Portal

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a form of reformed tax that has replaced the older indirect taxes such as VAT, service tax, excise duty, etc. The Goods and Services Tax system came into effect in July 2017 as a multi-stage, destination-based tax system that levies taxes at every step of value addition and is levied at the point of consumption.

Taxpayers would generally need to visit their nearest Income Tax office to file GST, submit claim refunds, obtain goods bills, and much more. However, this process has been cut off and made more accessible as taxpayers can now access all the information and tools they require from the GST online portal.

This guide will provide you with sufficient information to register, log in, and navigate through the GST online portal.
