What is Import Export Code?

All businesses engaged in import and export of goods must have an Import and Export Code (IEC). Without this code, you cannot do any import or export activities. It is not mandatory that only registered companies can apply for this 10-digit code issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT); even individuals can also do it. IEC is required when an importer has to clear his shipments from the customs, and send money abroad through banks. Likewise, an exporter needs to produce it when he needs to clear his shipments from the customs, and when he receives money in foreign currency directly into his bank account.

Important features of Import and Export Code

Pan-India Validity

The IEC, once issued, is valid in all your branches or factories throughout the county. It needs to be quoted while your goods go through customs and while you are sending money abroad or receiving money from abroad.

No Filings Apply

Once you have the IEC with you, you can begin importing and exporting. You don't need to file the transactions done under this code or pay any taxes.
