  1. Hi,

    I am a sole proprietor and have registered for Service Tax Registration. I own the premises and the business is also registered at the same address as that of my premises. However, I and my wife are joint owners of this property and hence all the documents like Khata etc bear both the names. I need an NOC format that I need to present that can give a no objection from my wife in running the business from my premises. The Annexure A however doesnt give those details. Please advise if there is a specific format or Annexure or if I can draft a letter myself.

    • Dear Venu Manda,

      You can use same format , only matter will change accordingly.

      Please find below the sample :

      To whomsoever it may concern

      Me and My Husband Mr. ­­­­­__________, legal owner of __(residence address)__, I have given my residence to M/s ________________
      I do not have any objection for the grant of Service Tax Registration to my husband Mr.____ by the Service Tax Registration authority at the above address.

      Thanking You,
