Consent Letter For GST Registration: Format and Requirements

Updated on :  

08 min read.

All businesses required to register under GST must comply with the same because this will legally authorise them to collect taxes from their buyers and pass on the credit of taxes paid. Only such businesses will be legally recognised as suppliers of goods or services.

What is a consent letter or NOC for GST Registration?

Many businesses are carrying out their work from home as they do not have a registered commercial place of business. If such premises on which work is being carried out is owned, then a document supporting the taxpayer’s ownership is to be uploaded at the time of registration. If the premises are rented, then a valid rent/lease agreement is to be uploaded. If it’s neither owned nor rented, then such taxpayers are required to submit a consent letter at the time of upload of their proof of place of business.

It is a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the owner of the premises stating that he doesn’t have any objection with the taxpayer using the premises for carrying out business. Under GST, there is no specific format for the consent letter. It can be any written document.

Who must sign the consent letter or NOC for GST registration?

The owner of the premises should sign a consent letter. In some cases, GST officers ask for a consent letter on a stamp paper, and the same should be notarised as well. However, one can upload the consent letter without even printing it on stamp paper. If a GST officer specifically asks for the content letter to be printed on stamp paper, the taxpayer can get the needful done.

What are the other documents required along with the consent letter?

The consent letter should be uploaded along with address proof of business like a Municipal Khata copy or an electricity bill.

Steps to upload the signed consent letter for NOC on the GST portal

Step 1: Visit the GST portal and go to ‘Services’ -> ‘Registration’ -> ‘New Registration’.

Step 2: While filling up the form, select ‘Consent’ under the nature of possession of premises if the place of business is a rented premise or the taxpayer uses the premises of a relative. The owner of the premises must sign the consent letter.

Step 3: The consent letter can be uploaded in PDF or JPEG format, but the file size cannot be more than 1 MB.

What if a taxpayer forgets to submit a consent letter?

Suppose a taxpayer forgets to submit the consent letter and the address proof while filing the GST registration application in Form GST REG-01. In that case, the GST officer will communicate with the taxpayer via email or phone. On receiving such communication, a taxpayer can attach the consent letter to the application.
