Value Added Tax (VAT) Registration is a tax registration required for trading or manufacturing business in India.

Hence, it is important for any business involved in the manufacturing or trading of goods to check the VAT rates applicable for the goods they sell in their state and comply with the relevant regulation. Delaer can sell upto threshold limit within the state without any VAT-Tin registration (e.g in Delhi there is threshold limit of Rs 20 lacs ,in U.P limit is Rs 5.00 Lacs.) When registered for VAT, the manufacturer or trader is allotted a unique 11 digit number which will serve as the VAT Number / TIN Number / CST Number
