Praveen: Hi, I have a sole proprietorship firm registered under service tax registration two months back. It is based on online scientific journals. But the annual turn over is not more than 4 lakhs. Do i need to register for GST? i noticed that GST is for those whose turn over is more than 20 lakhs. Kindly advice whether i need to register for GST. Thank you.

Aman: Hey, I am a freelancer exporting services to international clients. However, I do not have any business registered in my name. Now as GST will mandatorily apply in my case (which wasn't so, earlier), can I register for GST without having a business? Or do I need to register my business first? Also, let's say I apply for registration of a sole proprietorship firm. In that case, I need to give my GST details (service tax earlier) to register, which I don't have. So, how to avoid this paradox? Please help. Thanks a lot in advance!
