    What if we provide online tuition from home but only 2 to 4 students per month otherwise when there are no students for few months then do such online tuition need to apply for company name? Otherwise without company name, necessary to apply for GST even for 2 to 4 students?
    Again, if all these students are Indians then GST necessary?
    If any single student is from foreign country, then GST necessary?
    What is the charge in India for applying or registering online tuition company? (Although not sure whether to consider it as company since hardly ever income possible)
    I hope to receive answers from you 🙂
