Re: GST Registration for freelance consultants who export.


Thank you for the response. So for small time exporters (who are individuals, freelancing) – we are supposed to register, and then pay 18 % GST on our invoices and claim a refund? I don’t think the LUT option is workable for freelancers since it says minimum revenue of 1 Cr.

GST Registration for freelance consultants who export.


Hi, this is Manohar. I am working as a freelance consultant with clients in the US. I have questions regarding the GST registration. Recently i saw this blog –… It was by Mr. Prashant Thakur from taxworry site. He argued that freelancers with only export and who don’t intend to claim ITC don’t have to register with GSTN. But looks like this article has been taken down now. Any reason why? Can NASSCOM try to get clarity on this from relevant authorities? There are many like me who have this question and some are even taking about quitting this freelancing and look for a regular job due to these uncertainties. Any help on this is greatly appreciated. Than...
