An import export code is a unique 10-digit code that is required for every business owner in India who imports or exports goods. It is issued by the Director-General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), Ministry of Commerce, and does not require filing or renewal.
IEC is required by importers to clear customs and shipment, and to transfer money to foreign banks. Exporters require their IEC to send shipments and receive money from foreign banks.
Having any IEC code license will help you expand your business reach globally & will help you spread your presence to customers around the world.
Based on IEC registration, nowadays, businesses can enjoy and avail benefits provided by the EPC (Export Promotion Council), DGFT, and Customs.
IEC does not require the filing of return. There is no need to prove the legitimacy of an IEC Code once it has been assigned.
Obtaining a IEC from DGFT is very easily. It generally takes 10-15 days from the date and time of application.
Once an individual is applied and got their IEC code, he/she need not renewal or register again for it, as it is a one time registration valid for lifetime.
IEC is considered as a identity of Government issued by DGFT, hence showing customs authority at the time of shipment clearance will do.
