Under the GST regime, registration is the foremost and essential step for existing taxpayers. Without registration, they would not get the GSTIN number, a taxpayer's primary identity number. Suppose, at any point, while obtaining GST registration or receiving GST registration, there are changes to the information furnished to the GST Common Portal. In that case, a GST registration amendment application can be filed. The need for amendments in registration may arise due to several factors, such as a change in address, change in contact number, change in business details, etc.

|Additional Place of Business (other than a change in State)|
Any taxpayer of the following category, registered under GST, can file the Amendment of the registration application:
In case of any changes to the legal name of a business, the GST registration certificate need not be canceled. The existing GST registration can be amended to reflect the new business name. Changes to the business name can be updated on the GST portal by filing FORM GST REG-14 within 15 days of a business name change.
On applying the change in the business name, the GST Officer is required to verify the application and approve the Amendment to the business name within 15 working days in FORM GST REG-15.

If the information submitted by the taxpayer is acceptable, the officer can approve the application for GST amendment. If the information is not sufficient, then the GST officer can reject the application for Amendment.
However, suppose a GST officer fails to take action within 15 working days of submission of an amendment application or within seven working days of receipt of clarification or additional information in response to a notice. In that case, the registration certificate shall stand amended to the extent applied for, and the amended certificate will be made available to the registered person on the Common Portal.
