What is GST Identification Number (GSTIN)?

All the business entities registering under GST will be provided a unique identification number known as GSTIN or GST Identification Number.

Currently any dealer registered under state VAT law has a unique TIN number assigned to him by state tax authorities. Similarly, service tax registration number is assigned to a service provider by Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC).

Let's understand the structure of GST Identification Number:

Every taxpayer will be assigned a state-wise PAN-based Goods and Services Taxpayer Identification Number (GSTIN) which will be 15 digit long.

The first two digits of GSTIN will represent the state code. Each state has a unique two digit code like 27 for Maharashtra and 10 for Bihar.

The next ten digits of GSTIN will be the PAN number of the taxpayer.

13th digit indicates the number of registrations an entity has within a state for the same PAN.

It will be an alpha-numeric number (first 1-9 and then A-Z) and will be assigned on the basis of number of registrations a legal entity (having the same PAN) has within one state.

For example, if a legal entity has single or one registration only within a state then it will be assigned the number 1 as 13th digit of the GSTIN. If the same legal entity gets another or second registration for a second business vertical within the same state, then the 13th digit of GSTIN assigned to this entity will become 2. Similarly, if an entity has 11 registrations in the same state then it will be assigned letter B in the 13th place. This way up to 35 business verticals of any legal entity can be registered within a state using this system.

The fourteenth digit currently has no use and therefore will be Z by default.

The last digit will be a check code which will be used for detection of errors.
