With regard to exemption from payment of integrated GST by exporters, the big exporters with good track record can give letter of undertaking (LUT) to the customs. Small exporters may execute bond to seek IGST exemption on export consignments.


An exporter can pay the IGST (Integrated GST) applicable on the goods at the time of export and seek a refund.


Alternatively, the goods can be exported without tax under a letter of undertaking or other prescribed procedure, and the exporter is entitled to claim refund of the taxes paid on inputs.


The exemption from IGST on the final product procured for exports would help in easing the liquidity as cost of credit in India is much above the international benchmark.


The exporter can avail 90% refund of GST paid on inputs sourced which can be claimed immediately up on filing and balance of 10% later.


The finance ministry of India government has agreed to refund 90% of the duties paid by exporters in the process of manufacturing items for export within a period of seven days under the Goods and Services Tax regime. If tax refunds could not be made within seven days, then government will pay interest to exporters.

Durai Expo Services : I have a big doubt in IGST in export. While buying a material in Chennai I'm paying CGST and SGST to my supplier. If product is 1lak means I'm paying 18k GST .. in export invoice i mentioned 1,20,000/- including my profit 2000. I'm choosing export against payment in iGST payment status. So I'm mentioning the IGST amount of 18k. But in shipping bill DHL express mentioned 21600/-. They calculating 18% of my total amount 120000. So which amount i Wil get refund from government 18000 or 21600?????? Can I go with Lut and bond procedure??? I'm invoiced including GST amount. So LUT and BOND is necessary ? Or can I go with above
