Whether I will get any benefit on expenses incurred by me? My annual income from advertisements is estimated at 30 lakhs per year.
You have to take GST registration if your turnover cross 20 lakhs in year. In your case since you estimate that your turnover will be more than 20 lakhs, you will have to take registration.
