With the development of technology and the growing demand for new and better goods, many NRIs and foreigners want to sell their wares in India. Because of the easy storage and shipping offered by these e-commerce service providers, various NRI have started selling their international brand goods on portals like Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm, and others.
Any person who occasionally engages in transactions involving the supply of services or products or both, whether by himself, through his agent, or in any other manner, and who does not have a fixed place of business or residence in India, is subject to the Goods and Service Tax Act.
Non-resident taxable persons must also register under Section 24 of the GST Act. It expressly states that non-resident taxable persons must register for GST, regardless of their annual turnover, and that they must do so prior to starting their company. So, even if a non-resident taxable individual wishes to conduct a one-time transaction, he must register for GST.
Process of GST Registration for NRI
Provisional Registration and Final GST Registration are the two aspects of the registration process for non-resident taxable persons. Provisional registration is required in order to pay taxes in advance and receive basic verification. A individual may apply for final registration after the provisional registration has been approved. The procedure for registering for GST is outlined in Rule 13 of the CGST regulations.
Provisional Registration 
  • Non-resident taxable persons must fill out FORM REG-09 to apply for GST registration.
  • The application must be submitted at least 5 days before the start of the company.
  • For the purpose of OTP, applicants must have an email address and a phone number when logging in. The applicant can only proceed with registration after successfully submitting the OTP.
  • The applicant must have the company's tax identification number, as well as a valid copy of its passport.
  • Via EVC, the registration form must be signed by an authorised signatory who must be a resident of India and have a PAN.
  • The application for REG-09 must be accompanied by payment of the Self-assessed Advance Tax Payment.
Final Registration
The final registration process is the same as the provisional registration process under form GST REG-26.
  • If an individual does GST Registration, he must complete the FORM REG-26 and submit it electronically. The application for final registration must be submitted within three months of the provisional registration date.
  • If all of the information is right, REG 26 will be released as the final registration.
  • The officer will give a show-cause notice with the help of FORM GST REG-27 and if the information is wrong or incomplete.
  • After receiving a response to the show-cause notice, the officer must issue either a rejection order under FORM GST REG-28 or an acceptance order under REG-20.
  • A non-application resident's must be duly signed by an approved resident signatory who has a valid PAN and an address in India.
