Can I register for GST if I have multiple businesses or trade names?

If you have multiple businesses or trade names, you may be wondering if you can register for Goods and Services Tax (GST) under a single registration. The answer is yes, you can register for GST under a single registration even if you have multiple businesses or trade names. This is known as a "composite registration".

Composite registration is a type of GST registration that allows a person with multiple businesses or trade names to register all of them under a single GST registration. This can help simplify the compliance process as you will only need to file a single GST return for all your businesses.


Here are the steps involved in registering for GST under a composite registration:

  1. Visit the GST portal - The first step is to visit the GST portal at https://www.gst.gov.in/. Click on the "Register Now" button under "Taxpayers (Normal)".

  2. Fill out the registration form - You will need to fill out the registration form with your personal details such as your name, PAN, email ID, and mobile number.

  3. Select "Composite" - In the "Type of taxpayer" section of the registration form, select "Composite". This will allow you to register multiple businesses or trade names under a single registration.

  4. Add your businesses or trade names - You will need to add all your businesses or trade names to the registration form. You will need to provide the name, address, and other details for each business.

  5. Submit your documents - You will need to upload your documents such as your PAN card, address proof, and bank account details.

  6. Verification - Once you submit your application, it will be verified by the GST officer. This process may take a few days, and you may be required to provide additional information if needed.

  7. GSTIN - Once your application is approved, you will be assigned a unique Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) for all your businesses or trade names.

It is important to note that there are certain restrictions on composite registration. For example, businesses that supply goods or services through an e-commerce operator cannot register for composite registration. Additionally, if you are already registered under the regular scheme, you cannot switch to composite registration until the end of the financial year.


In conclusion, if you have multiple businesses or trade names, you can register for GST under a composite registration. By following the steps outlined above, you can register all your businesses under a single registration and simplify the compliance process. Just make sure to check the eligibility criteria and restrictions before applying for composite registration.
