  1. i am going to start a business, please help me decide to what option i need to choose partnership firm or sole proprietor for getting benefit of GST input tax credit.

  2. As per the law, A Company is a person and hence is competent t become a partner of a firm. In that case, can you please tell the documents to be submitted for taking the GST registration.

  3. Hi,
    I am looking to get a GSTIN for a partnership firm I have, we had registered this company a couple of years ago, no business had begun under this company. Now, we are looking to sell a few products under this company. We have a few questions about the documents needed for the GST registration. Since we did not have any billing under the company name, we dont have a company account, also we are working from a place owned by my father and dont have a rental agreement. Need to know how to go about GST registration under these conditions.

    Thank you in advance!
