Business formation is not a matter of purchasing goods and starting selling or providing services. Getting a stable business requires various legal services.

The first step towards business formation is getting all-in-one tax-related details under the regime of PAN Card. It is essential to register your business and conduct other financial transactions.

Next, the business requires a GST number. Because in India, it is mandatory to have a GST number for conducting any business and offering any kind of service.

However, establishing a business requires a lot more than this. For that, My Tax Advisor offers services like EPF (Employees Provident Fund Scheme), ESIC (Employees State Insurance Corporation), MSME, Shop & Establishment, Digital Signature Registration, PTEC and PTRC, and TradeMark.

The services of My tax Advisor are not limited here. We offer the Import-Export Code Registration service too. Our aim to get your business to commendable value by registering a company and sound formation of a business.

Goods and Service tax
In order to supply goods and products in India, it is mandatory to do GST registration. Once you have registered under this regime, you will receive a unique GSTIN (Goods and Service Tax Identification Number). The Central Government issues a state-wise, 15-digit number to you once you complete registration. There are many advantages of GST registration including the fact that you will get a legal identity as a supplier. You can also avail input tax credit and collect GST from recipients of goods and services.
