12A Registration is a onetime registration that can exempt Income Tax of an organization. After this registration all income shall not be taxable. The application form that is being used to apply for 12A Registration is form 10A. The application takes about 3- 4 months. Application for the purpose of registration under section 12A can be applied to the Commissioner of Income tax department (Exemption) having jurisdiction over the institution.
The procedure of getting a registration done requires few steps that are to be followed first by duly filing in the application form and then submitting it to the respective department. The NGO then receives the notice for clarification which is received two or three months after the submission. The relevant reply to the clarifications is to be submitted to the respective Income Tax dept. by the consultant along with the supporting documents. The consultant is to visit the department personally to follow up the application status until the exemption certificate is issued to them.
