Even though The Punjab State Development Tax Act, 2018 has been published in the Gazette notifying the date of enactment with effect from April 16, 2018 the Rules, Forms, Portal for Registration payment etc has not yet been prescribed by the Govt as of now. Hence, we have to wait for registration.

What about Profession tax registrations if we have three offices in Punjab i.e at Ludhiana, Jalandhar & Chandigarh. Do we need to take separate registrations for three offices or only one registration.
Thanks & Regards
