ISSUES 

1.When filling the details of business, proof of ‘Constitution of business’ is required to be uploaded in PDF or JPEG format. 

2. In case of proprietorship business, such document proof may not be available. In such case, Registration Certificate(RC) under VAT, in which proprietorship is mentioned can be used. 

3. In case such RC is not available, other RCs such as under Shops and Establishment Act may be used. 

4. GSTN has VAT registration data only up to December 2015. Registrations after December 2015, will not be migrated for now. 

5. E­signature facility is not activated at the end of GSTN. Either e­signature or Digital Signature Certificate(DSC) is essential for submission to be successful. 

6. Thus, every registrant will need to have a DSC which involves a cost.
