A business must register for VAT if its taxable supplies and imports exceed the prescribed threshold limit for the preceding 12 months. The threshold varies from country to country. It is optional for businesses whose supplies and imports or expenses exceed certain prescribed threshold for preceding 12 months.
In case of failure of a person to apply for registration when he becomes liable to do, the authority shall register such person with effect from the date on which the person first become liable (obliged) to register. Failure by a person to apply for registration where he is otherwise compulsorily required to be registered is subject to penalty as per Executive Regulations.
Nonresident businesses making taxable supplies in the state for which it is obliged to collect and pay VAT has to register for VAT irrespective of the threshold limit.
A registrant has to mandatorily apply for tax de-registration if he stops making taxable supplies or the value of such supplies is less than the voluntary threshold limit in the preceeding 12 months. However, if it is anticipated that supply or expenditure in the coming 30 days is expected to reach voluntary registration threshold, he may choose not to deregister itself. Failure to de-register for VAT when a tax registrant is required to do so will lead to penalties.
