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 - https://community.nasscom.in/community/discuss/current-issues/gst/blog/2017/08/07/no-gst-registration-required-for-expor… 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.

Thanks!
