    Hi, there are varying scenarios.

    According to my CA, if you are being paid by a foreign company (in foreign exchange) you do not have to register for or pay GST.

    For instance, if Google Singapore (AdSense) is paying you in USD you do not have to register for or pay GST. If your affiliate who is registered abroad pays you, GST is not applicable. If someone pays you from abroad in FX for a sponsored post, it is not applicable.

    But if you take payment from an Indian company, whether for a sponsored/paid post, affiliate commissions or online advertising, you will have to register for and pay GST as may be applicable in your case.

    Thank you for the information. I have been searching for this info all over the internet and there are conflicting information.

    Is this still valid now (in 2020) that I do not have to register for GST even if earn from abroad in foreign exchange? I don't worry about utilizing input tax credits anyway.

    Yes, it is still valid - If 100% of your income is in FX, and you do not have any income from India in INR.

    A tax on this type of activity is definitely necessary, because many factors in this sphere of blogging depend on it.
