I’m a freelancer. Do I need to register for GST? What’s the process?



If your income is more than Rs. 20 lakhs per annum then you need to register for GST and charge GST of 18% for your services.

You need to send your clients a GST invoice when you bill them. Use any online accounting software to prepare your GST invoices and make sure it contains the following:

  • Your name, business address and GST number
  • Invoice number and date
  • The client’s name, address and GSTN (if they have one)
  • SAC if applicable
  • Service value and its rate of tax
  • Your signature
