Letter of Undertaking (LUT)

The Letter of Undertaking (LUT) is furnished in GST RFD 11 under rule 96A. The exporter declares that they would fulfil all the requirements specified under GST while exporting without making an IGST payment.

All GST registered goods and service exporters are eligible to submit LUT except the exporters who have been prosecuted for any offence, and the amount of tax evasion exceeds Rs. Two hundred fifty lakhs under the CGST Act or the Integrated Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 or any existing laws. In such cases, where the exporter is not eligible to file LUT, they would have to furnish an export bond.
