GST Number or the GSTIN (GST Identification Number) is a unique number issued to a business registered under GST. GSTIN is a 15 digit number allotted on the basis of the PAN of the business. The “Search by PAN” function allows an individual to view the details of the registered taxpayer. An individual can either log in to the portal or use this function without logging in to the portal. However, the results in both cases are different. Additional details are given when the individual logs in to the portal.

GST portal allows searching the GST Number or GSTIN of an entity using its PAN.

FAQs

1. Can I search for GST Number or GSTIN using the legal name of the business?

Only by using the PAN GST Numer or GSTIN can be searched. GSTIN cannot be searched using the legal name or any other detail of the business. On the other hand, if you have a GSTIN, you can verify the details of the business using the GSTIN.
