“It may be noted that as part of a regular physical verification exercise, the premise (principal place of business) of M/S Cloudtail India was found to be non-existent,” the state tax department said in a statement.
Subsequently on 4th December, the Haryana excise and tax department issued a show cause notice to Cloudtail.
“In the reply filed by M/S Cloudtail India on 7th December 2020, they accepted that they had moved their premise but were unable to amend their GST registration,” the Haryana tax agency said. “The Department accepted their reply and restored the registration of M/S Cloudtail India on 8th December 2020.”
ET had reported on 8th December that supply disruption was caused to Cloudtail, one of the largest retailers on Amazon India platform, following the suspension of its GST registration for Haryana, a warehousing hub for Cloudtail.
The tax authorities finally revoked the suspension after more than 20 hours of confusion among scores of Cloudtail suppliers who were not able to generate e-way bills to send their supplies to Cloudtail warehouses in Haryana.
Cloudtail did not respond to an email seeking comments on the statement issued by the Haryana tax department.
However, a person familiar with Cloudtail operations said that Cloudtail business in Haryana is “running as usual” after restoration of the GST registration by the state government on 8th December.
Haryana is a major supply hub for Cloudtail and the e-commerce vendor operates fulfilment centres in Gurgaon, Jamalpur, Mewat and Sonipat.
