As per GST act, a casual taxable person is a person who deals in supplying of taxable goods & services on occasional basis in a taxable territory in the absence of any fixed business place. A casual person can act as an agent or a principal or in any other capacity in order to supply goods & services for the continuation of business.
Every individual who is a supplier & his or her aggregate turnover exceeds the limit of 20 Lakh rupees needs to register under GST. Such threshold limit does not apply on casual taxable persons. A casual taxable person cannot avail the composition scheme. A casual taxable person needs to obtain a temporary registration which is valid for maximum 90 days period from the date of registration. For ex – Mr. Tarun estimates the value of taxable services at Rs.200000. Therefore, in order to obtain temporary registration, he should deposit Rs.36000 (18% of Rs.200000) as an advance to GST department.
