De-Registration [21 & Rule-11]

A process of cancellation of sales tax registration as a result of application filed for cancellation of registration by a registered person or on recommendation of LRO due to any other reason is called deregistration.

Reasons for De-Registration:

A registered person may apply for de-registration, if the supplies made by such person are declared exempt from sales tax by the Federal Government.

3) Turnover remains below the taxable limit:

A retailer whose value of supplies, in any period during the last (12) months does not exceed Rs. 5 million.

4) Discontinuance of export business:

An exporter may apply for de-registration after the discontinuance of export business.

5) Failure in filing a return for 6 month:

The CRO may cancel the registration of a registered person, if such person fails to file his tax return for a consecutive period of six months.

Note: Before such cancellation, the registered person shall be provided an opportunity of being heard.

Procedure for De-Registration:

The following procedure shall be adopted for de-registration:

1) Application to LRO:

The person, who wants to be de-registered, shall apply to concerned LRO.

2) Audit of Records:

An officer of sales tax shall examine and audit the records and ascertain the position of the case.

3) Demand of Final Return:

Where the LRO is satisfied that the registered person is liable to be registered, he shall demand final return from applicant and direct to settle his tax liability.

4) Recommendation of case to CRO:

Where final return is filed and tax liability is settled by a person liable to be de- registered the LRO shall recommend to CRO for cancellation of registration. After such recommendation, CRO shall cancel the registration.

5) Time period for de-registration:

The order for de-registration shall be made within the time specified under rule-11 of the Sales Tax Rules, 2006.

6) Opportunity of Hearing:

Where de-registration becomes necessary as a result of failure in filing of tax return for a period of consecutive 6 months; the CRO shall not cancel the registration unless the person has been provided with an opportunity of being heard.

Impacts of De-Registration:

Where de-registration is awarded to a person by the Sales Tax Department, it has following impacts:

After de-registration, a person has no compulsion regarding maintenance of sales tax record.

2) Limitation regarding charge of sales tax:

A de-registered person may not charge sales tax to his customers after de- registration.

3) Limitation on claim of tax credit:

A de-registered person may not claim the input tax credit after de-registration.
