  • Dear Sir

    I have completed the GST enrollment application with all the required details however I am not able to submit the application using “Submit with E-Signature button” as this tab is not populated in my enrollment application.

    Please suggest.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Digital Signature is mandatory for Companies and Limited Liability Partnership. If you have company or LLP, then you have to sign through Digital Signature. If you are not a company or LLP then you can E-sign the registration application by following this process:-

      E-Sign stands for Electronic Signature. E-Sign is an online electronic signature service that allows an Aadhaar holder to digitally sign a document. If the taxpayer opts to electronically sign the Enrollment Application or any other document at the GST Common Portal using the E-Sign service, the following steps are performed:-

      1. The taxpayer clicks the E-sign button.
      2. The GST Common Portal prompts the taxpayer to enter the Aadhaar number of the Authorized Signatory.
      3. After validating the Aadhar Number, the GST Common Portal sends a request to UIDAI system to send an OTP.
      4. UIDAI system sends an OTP to e-mail address and mobile number registered against Aadhaar number.
      5. The GST System prompts the taxpayer to enter the OTP.
      6. The taxpayer enters the OTP and submits the Enrollment Application or the document. The e-Signing process is completed.

      • GST portal is under development therefore E-sign option is not working and the same is also confirmed by the GST helpline service. We have contacted at GST helpline and they said that right now you can save you enrolment application as Draft and after few days you can submit your application.

  • we are introducing as a partnership firm of two partners, we like to migrate to GST from WBVAT. Regarding Digital Signature Certificate we would like to know following points to be clarified.

    1. Which class of Digital Signature Certificate we are going to belong?
    2. Is Digital Signature Certificate necessary for both partners individually?
    3. Is one partner Digital Signature Certificate is enough to solve the GST migration?
    4. Is it mandatory for partnership firm?

    • 1. Only Class -2 or Class 3 DSC can be registered at the GST Common Portal. You cannot submit the Enrolment Application if your DSC is not registered with the GST Common Portal. Therefore, you need to register your DSC at the GST Common Portal by clicking the Register DSC menu. During registration of DSC with the GST Common Portal, the PAN of the DSC holder will be matched with the PAN database of the CBDT. After validation you need to select the certificate that you need to register.
      2. A primary Authorized Signatory is the person who is primarily responsible to perform action at the GST Common Portal on behalf of the taxpayer. All communication from the GST Common Portal relating to taxpayer will be sent to the primary Authorized Signatory. In case of partnership firm, authirised signatory is “Any authorized partner or any person authorized by the partners”
      3.It is not specifically mentioned anywhere about the digital signature but in general Authorised Signatory is responsible to perform all action related GST. Therefore in out opinion only digital signature of authorized partner is necessary

      4. Electronically signing the Enrolment Application using Digital Signature is mandatory for enrolment by Companies, Foreign Companies, Limited Liability Partnership (LLPs) and Foreign Limited Liability Partnership (FLLPs). Digital Signature is not mandatory for Normal Partnership Firms.

    • As per GST helpline service, right now the E-sign functionality is under development.Therefore you have to wait till the GST portal is updated. Righ now, you can save application as “draft” and you can submit the same whenever the portal will be upgraded.

  • I am a proprietor, I have my digital signature pendrive however I am not able to register DSC on GST website.
    I tried all the options specified to get DSC registered. I am not sure if Proprietors are not allowed to register for DSC. Please guide.

    • Proprietor have both options to sign the GST application either through DSC or through E-sign. Right now E-sign is under development, therefore you can sign only through DSC. If there is problem with DSC then Uninstall the EM Signer and re-install it. Further you should be aware of following:

  • getting DSC Registered and using it again for submitting seems to be a big task…

    I tried so many times and installed and reinstalled it… but always the failed message…
    i wish if company who looks after and maintain this registration system can follow the DSC Utlity issued by Income Tax Department for using it online on incometaxefiling.gov.in
    That DSC Utility is the best and no problem like this emsigner…

    So please look into the matter and help to resolve this DSC issue.

    • The GST Portal is under development therefore, you are facing these issues. We have already discussed the matter with GST help center and they said that these issues will be sort out as soon as possible.

      • Dear Sir,

        Due to some issue in DSC we are unable to digitally sign the application however I have already created USER ID and password on gst portal. Our directors are travelling and it would be very difficult for us to get the DSC upated tomorrow. Since Haryana VAT deadline will expire on 31st December 2016, will I get another chance to migrate after 1st January 2016. What is Delta All Registrants (All Groups)? Can I migrate under this option? Kindly help.

        • he migration schedule (due dates) is issued so that migration process can be speed up but these are not last dates for GST migration. For your satisfaction, you can confirm it by calling to GST helpline number – 0124-4688999
          Even the GST website is under development and some functionalities (like E-sign) are not working properly hence many registration applications in different States are still pending even after passing of schedule dates.

  • dear sir,i am a proprietor,i have done my gst registration my profile is 100% but for signing it is not necessarry to use dsc as i am a proprietor i have my individual retailer firm,i will use e-sign option. And i want to know these
    1)i am unable to sign through e-sign as it is disable
    2)u said that when it will be active u can sign but last date for bihar people is given 15.12.2016,how can i do that after 15.12.2016

  • Received Mismatch During PAN Validations email for GST Enrolment,

    But during the filing of Detail there is no option to edit or change the following data which comes automatic
    BUSINESS DETAIL
    1 Legal Name of Business (as per PAN)
    2. Legal Name of Business (as per current tax Act)
    3. PAN of the Business

    PERSONAL DETAIL
    1.First Name
    2. Middle Name
    3. Last Name

    So in our case the PAN Number is correct and the name shown on the GST site is by default and automatic without the option to edit it

    So what is the mismatch when the System is taking all this Detail Automatic and we have no option to edit it.

    So how to resolve this issue.

    • PAN Mismatch Error Solution
      Problem 1: Mismatch in name as per VAT-TIN/Service Tax-TIB and that in CBDT
      Solution provided by GSTN on GST portal: Making the Name as per PAN editable in the application for proprietors, where details of Authorized signatories were auto-populated to correct any differences between Name as per VAT and Name as per PAN
      Problem 2: Mismatch of names where middle name is not there (in such cases one space was being added when name data was downloaded from CBDT database.)
      Solution provided by GSTN on GST portal: Removing all spaces from name as per PAN validation to avoid appearance of spaces in PAN because of missing middle name
      Problem 3: Mismatch arising out of First Name, Last Name and Middle Name as given in VAT/Service Tax TIN with that in PAN
      Solution provided by GSTN on GST portal: Concatenation of First name, Middle Name & Lastname of taxpayers and sending single string request to CBDT in order to avoid failure due to name mismatch arising out of Fname, Lname & Mname
      Problem 4: Mismatch arising when PAN in enrolment application was left blank due to nonavailability of CBDT service at the time of data fetching for activation (after submission of application using DSC/eSign).
      Solution provided by GSTN on GST portal: Enabling fetching name as per PAN at the run time, should the name as per PAN in enrolment application was left blank due to non-availability of CBDT service at the time of activation.

  • I have come across in Mismatch of PAN validation where the Name of the person has 4 words
    For Example : DILIP KUMAR SOHANRAJ SHAH
    now the GST Business Detail will reflect the Name according to the PAN and without the Edit Option.
    Legal Name of Business (as per PAN ): DILIP KUMAR SOHANRAJ SHAH
    Legal Name of Business (as per current tax Act) DILIPKUMAR SOHANRAJ SHAH

    Now we cant edit and make any change..
    so dont know how to edit it and resolve this issue..

    I have come across this issue even in PARTNERSHIP Firm where we have added PARNTERS Detail as Authorised Signatory.. even in that case the Name of the Partner has 4 Words… now dont know what to do and how to proceed further.

  • I wish if GST registration had applied the same method and process which is used for Income Tax Efiling Site, where the Name of the Assessee is checked with PAN on the spot and we cant proceed for registration if there is mismatch… so this allow us to try and check different combination of First Name, Middle Name and Last Name.

    Many times the Name written on PAN card is different from Name in the Database since there is option in PAN Application form that what name you want on the Card.. and this results into mismatch when we try to file the detail from PAN Card, but when we check the “know your Jurisdiction” then we come to know that the Name in Database is different from what is written on PAN CARD.

    But even after entering the same name from Income Tax Site this Mismatch issues are coming for GST…

    Now if GST System is checking the Second LINE of PAN CARD i.e FATHER NAME then we dont have any option to check the Father Name in Database too 🙁

  • Dear sir I want to know that is DSC name should be pan card name .because my name in DSC is Nirmal singh and pan name is only Nirmal .

  • I think lots of bug in present system we should wait til it is rectified.
    Problems are below
    1. In case of Proprietorship firm name of firm is automatically populated in promoters/partners names 1st entry this should be editable otherwise it never match with CBDT database.
    2. Site is unstable automatically logging off
    3. Submit with E-Signature link is not working
    I think nobody would have submitted successfully till now.

  • We are facing issues in 2 companies while submitting GST enrollment form online. After login, we are taken to a page where continue button is present. After we click on continue, we are taken to business details page. On business details page, there are various tabs. On business details page, none of the details can be edited. Same is the case for all tabs up to verification sheet. On the verification tab, after we select the check box, the submit button is still disabled and date field shows the date when the form was last filled (December 7). Therefore we are unable to submit the form since December 7.

    On the top of the page, there is an option called “Dashboard”. When we click on it, we are taken to the dashboard page. On the dashboard page, name of the company is shown along with the status as “provisional” and edit button. When we click on edit button, we are taken to the same page as above where we cannot edit any details.
    we have already registered our DSC but now when we tried to re register it shows error

  • I have two explicit queries:

    1. If we have both VAT & SERVICE TAX Registarions, is it necessary that we enroll thru VAT Department ? Can we skip GST registration now and register when GOI starts enrolling all Service Tax registered entities?
    2. If total turnover is less than 20 Lakh for last couple of years, is it necessary to enroll for GST ?

    Thanks & Regards

    • 1. There is no difference because GST registration is the one time process but you should register as soon as possible because you may not be allowed to register after a specific period. Further a separate provisional ID may not be available from Service Tax.
      2. Yes. All the existing taxpayers are required to register for GST even if the turnover is less than 20 Lakhs. You can surrender your registration after implementation of GST, if the turnover is less than Rs. 20 Lakhs

  • Dear Sir
    I Have completed the GST enrollment application with all the required details.After Submitting the application in has been rejected showing PAN mismatch, after checking with the CBDT data
    there is no difference in the details how can i solve this issue?

  • I have submitted my gst application and have signed it… current status is migrated..but I have forgotten to enter CST number..is there any way to correct it now?

    Thanks

  • I have filled GST migration application for company, and we received following mail as failure message from dept.
    This is in reference to Application for Enrolment of Existing Taxpayer submitted at GST portal. It is observed that details of following PAN’s are not matched with CBDT database. Kindly fill the details as per PAN details and resubmit the Form. Details of the PAN’s are as under:
    1. BNCPD3550Q(mismatched PAN)
    2. BNCPD3550Q(mismatched PAN)
    3. ANMPC8223C(mismatched PAN)

    Above mentioned PAN card details are Directors PAN card details and we filled same as per PAN card sequence (i.e.. First name & Last name). Kindly help us how to proceed further.

    • It is observed that details of following PAN’s are not matched with CBDT database.

      I have checked my PAN and DIN registration on the IT and MCA websites and used exactly the same names and other details as reported on these sites to resubmit in the promoters/partners page on https://services.gst.gov.in/services/login Still validation of the GST application failed.

      The solution I found

      Go to the “promoters/partners” registration page and leave out the DIN number when you are NOT the one who is allowed to sign. That means an other person is authorized on the next page “authorized/signatory” to do the digitally signing.

      When you verify after this change it will work and you get the migration acknowledgement:
      Your Application for Enrolment of Existing Taxpayer in Tamil Nadu is submitted successfully against xxxxxxxx & date & time.
      The status of Your Provisional ID xxxxxxxxx has been changed from “Provisional” to “Migrated”.

      Success

  • I have completed the GST enrollment application with all the required details however, I am not able to submit the application using “Submit with E-Signature button” as this is not enabled.
    I am an authorized signatory of a normal partnership firm (do not come under company/LLP).
    Since I am in Karnataka, it says registration last date is 15th Jan 2017. Please suggest

    • Right now the E-sign functionality is not working on GST website. You can submit the Enrolment Application at GST Common Portal without electronically signing it but you need to sign the application at a later date when the E-sign functionality will work. You can view the submitted application after login by accessing “My Saved Applications” at the GST Common Portal.

    And What to do for the Clients who dont have DSC and are eligible to submit without DSC… And VAT department is calling and sending SMS to assessee with due date 22.01.2017. (More then half of the people are pending to register)

    When the System itself is not fully functioning they how can there be due date?

    Sir Can you please make the Govt and Department Understand about this issues?
    There is no clarification with regard to many stuffs….

    Even we are busy with VAT Audit , Quartely Return (which is changed from this year and hence making it more difficult to prepare and file the same), TDS Return and also Late Filing IT Returns.

  • surname only in our pan varification but first name is mantatory in gst registration then how to fill that name in gst portal

  • Please clarify the following

    PAN – Surname is mandatory
    GST – First name is mandatory

    What can we do for migration , if we receive the Mismatch for PAN entry while filing for GST.

  • E-Sign and DSC both will cost you 🙂
    So i feel DSC is much better to opt for…

    E-Signature Options is enable with Emudhra’s ESign India subscription, which will cost Rs.500/- for Unlimited eSign for 1 Year and that too OTP based with Aadhaar Card . So it is better to get DSC itself and use it unlimited for 2 years, and that too without waiting for OTP.

  • Today received Successful Migration Acknowledgment for two proprietorship firms… so it seems the PAN Mismatch issue is resolved… but still need to resubmit all the old application to check if the issue is really resolved 🙂
