Spotting Fake GSTIN

There could be cases where the supplier might use a fake GSTIN ID while supplying the goods to the customers. In such a case, the supplier can collect tax in the form of CGST+SGST/UTGST or IGST from the recipient but will not pass it into the hands of the government. Also, there could be scenarios wherein a person could claim Input Tax Credit(ITC) by creating bogus/ fake inward invoices to avoid the tax liability against no genuine supply of goods.

Henceforth, this may impact the interest of the customer or receiver and can also affect the government revenues to a great extent. To handle such cases, the recipient should verify and validate the GSTIN of a new supplier to ensure timely GST Verification and GST Compliance.

It has also been noticed that the tax evaders have come up with new ways to evade taxes from people and ultimately fool consumers and the Government. They just put a fake alpha-numeric code against the GSTIN heading to misguide the consumers, which unarguably resembles a GSTIN. It is also vital to know how a GSTIN is structured to spot any malpractices.

Now let us understand what reveals a 15 character GSTIN or GST Number:

  • The first two digits stand for the unique state code in accordance with the Census of India, 2011. For instance, the state code of Punjab is 03, and that of Maharashtra is 27.
  • The next ten characters reflected are the PAN number of the taxpayer.
  • The 13th digit depicts the registration number of the taxpayer with the associated PAN number.
  • The 14th digit “Z” is by default for everyone – not representing anything currently.
  • The 15th digit is the Check digit –It can be an alphabet or a number.

Knowing the above bifurcation can also act as a rescue when you’re in a dilemma about the authenticity of the GSTIN while paying at the cash counter of your local merchant.
