Communication to the Central Excise/Service Tax Taxpayers on migration to GST
Dear Central Excise/Service Tax Taxpayers,
Greetings from Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC). We thank you for your
duty/tax payments which have contributed to Nation building.
As you are aware, roll out of Goods and Services Tax (GST) is scheduled from 01.04.2017.
The taxes of Central Excise and Service Tax would be subsumed in the GST. So as a Central
Excise/Service tax taxpayer you need to take certain action to migrate to the GST regime.
In case you are also registered with State Commercial Tax dept (VAT/Luxury Tax/Entry
Tax/Entertainment Tax), you may have already initiated this process of migration and no
further action suggested below would be applicable to you.
A schematic representation of the migration process is given below:
In order to migrate to GST, you need to have a provisional ID and password. These details
you can obtain by logging into ACES portal (www.aces.gov.in). These details are being
obtained from GSTN and you may periodically log in to see your status.
You are required to use the provisional ID and password to log into GSTN portal
(www.gst.gov.in) to fill up the required details and upload the supporting documents. After
you provide the requisite details, an ARN (Application Reference Number) would be
communicated to you by GSTN. Once you have the ARN, you would migrate to GST on the
scheduled GST roll out date with issue of Provisional Certificate.
DIRECTORATE GENERAL OF SYSTEMS, CBEC
Please note: In case your Central Excise or Service Tax registration does not have a valid
Income Tax PAN number, you need to obtain the PAN number and update your registration
details on to ACES portal before you can be migrated to GST.
You may visit www.cbec.gov.in or www.aces.gov.in to know more about the process of
migration to GST.
In case of any difficulty or query, please contact your jurisdictional Central Excise/Service
Tax officers or call the following helpdesk numbers:

GSTN: 0124 – 4688999
