The Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) has enabled the new functionality in the official portal to add “Additional Trade Name” under the same Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN). With this now, it is easy to do multiple businesses under the same Legal name with a different Trade Name.
Every GST return form contains a different column of both trade name and legal name that needs to be furnished. Till now, single trade name is allowed for one registration, taxpayer cannot use two different trade names for single registration. A taxpayer can take more than one registration in one state with same PAN if he wishes to carry two different business with two different trade names in same state.
