“If you cannot feed a team with two pizzas, it’s too large”
These were the words of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who believed in a quality workforce rather than a highly numbered one. Jeff Bezos worked on a simple day job until he clicked upon an idea to start an online bookstore.
Just like all people, you might wonder. Why a bookstore???
He believed that people needed an easier and better way to get books without having to go to a physical library or bookstore. It was when that idea clicked, that he decides to sell more than just books.
Now Amazon is an online e-commerce seller, selling anything from board pins to automobile parts. Amazon, however, has a seller program, where you can start selling your stuff on amazon.
We have put together this article to guide amazon sellers on the best method to get an Amazon PPOB. So get your reading mode on and read along.
What is a Principal Place Of Business (PPOB)
PPOB is short for Principal Place Of Business, explaining the main operating base of a business in any state. A business can have more than just one place of operation in a state. The primary pace of operation of the business is known as PPOB.
Let me explain this concept with an easy example
Consider yourself as an Amazon Seller in Hyderabad with 5 warehouses spread across the state. All of these warehouses are tied to your name or one single business.
Now you need a primary or principal location for this business. It can become easily confusing on which location you are willing to opt as your primary address and this is where PPOB comes into play. One of these warehouse addresses will be regarded as your Principal Place Of Business (PPOB) and all the other warehouse locations will be regarded as your Additional Place Of Business (APOB) locations.
PPOB is situated in the address location that has been mentioned as the professional business address in the registrar of companies. It also holds all the formal documents and other details of the company within its doors.
How is a virtual office useful for my Amazon PPOB registration
Amazon requires all its sellers to have a GST registered Amazon PPOB address. Most Amazon sellers have their location and register it under the GST norms of that state. But if you are a small-time businessman or shipping products from a rented location, there might be difficulties in getting a GST registration for Amazon PPOB.
The challenges may be improper documentation or just a lack of cooperation from your landlord. These problems may delay your time to get a GST registered Amazon PPOB.
A Virtual Office Space can be the easiest way to get a GST registered Amazon PPOB without many difficulties. These office spaces have good documentation with prime address locations giving high value for your money.
These spaces are different from your traditional Office Spaces as they offer you no office/workspace to conduct your business affairs. But certain office space providers like InstaSpaces offer alternate workspace options like
- Co-working spaces
- Shared working spaces
- Dedicated Desks
- Dedicated Cabins
for your GST registered Amazon PPOB virtual office address location. The workspaces can be availed at an extra cost apart from the original Virtual Office cost.
Tell me more about InstaSpaces
InstaSpaces offer office space solutions across all the 29 states of India, including presence in all the union territories. Even though they specialize in virtual office spaces, they offer all kinds of solutions from conference rooms to alternate workspace solutions.
They offer virtual office space in three simple options
You can use this option to use the virtual office address as your professional mailing/billing address. You cannot use this for GST registrations.
You can use this address to acquire a unique GST number in that state, but you cannot use this address as your professional business address. It may sound like a balancing act from option 1, but each of these options has its uses to a specific set of clientele.
This can be used for GST as well as your business purposes. This address acts as a hybrid or moreover an original address. It is highly preferred to opt for this type of model when you are registering for a PPOB.
You can choose an option and then register your Amazon PPOB address in one of these awesome locations.
How will Instasapces help me with GST documentation for my Amazon PPOB address

All the documents have no mention of a virtual office, enabling easy registration under GST norms. Here is the list of documents offered by InstaSpaces
- 12 Month rent agreement
