What is GST LUT or Export Bond Filing?

LUT stands for letter of undertaking. This term is supremely important for exporters of goods & services. As per rule 96A of CGST rules, any person registered under GST using the option to supply goods or services for export without making IGST payment need to provide a bond or a letter of undertaking in form GST RFD – 11 bond & LUT format to the concerned officer before exporting goods & services. It is also applicable in case when we export goods or services to SEZ units/developer.

Previously, we were filing LUT manually along with the required documents but now CBEC provided the facility to apply LUT through online mode and reduced the burden of many taxpayers. It is a great step taken by government to automate the LUT process under GST. It also helps in reducing exporter’s grievances.
