Hello, I am a newbie from India. I want to start a Shopify e-commerce store as a dropshipper. For this type of business do I need to register it as a company in India? If yes, what type of registration(sole proprietorship or any other)? Do I need to pay any taxes if my customer base and suppliers are outside of India? Do I need to get a GSTIN number? What type of taxes that I need to pay if my customer base is in India?

I feel very grateful if someone answers these questions.
Thank you

Hi Pnava and welcome to the forum,

I really can't give you any informed information personally, unfortunately. However, I believe you will find most of what you need here Link hidden: Login to view and I would suggest that would also be the best place to source any follow up information in regards to anything they aren't able to assist you with directly, as they will surely be able to provide you with the details of who you need to speak with,
