Letter of undertaking (LUT) under GST

What is a Letter of undertaking (LUT) under GST?

The export of goods and services is vital for the growth of India’s economy. In order to promote Exports from India and to make them competitive in Global Market, the Government has waived off the GST on exports of goods and services. There are two ways in which this benefit can be exercised. First is to pay the applicable GST on the export of goods or services and afterwards taking Refund of the same and the second is not paying any GST on export by filing a Letter of Undertaking (LUT).

For those exporters who are not willing to block their working capital in the form of GST paid on exports and then taking Refund of the same, LUT would become the best mode to export their goods or services without any payment of GST being made.

Letter of Undertaking is to be furnished in Form GST RFD-11 on the common portal of GSTN in order to export the goods or services without payment of GST. The filed LUT will remain valid for a Financial Year. All exporters who are registered under GST are eligible to submit LUT except those who have been prosecuted and the amount of tax evasion exceeds Rs 250 lakhs under any of the existing GST Laws. Those who are ineligible to file LUT have to furnish an export bond along with bank guarantee to export their goods or services without payment of GST.
