Import Export Code (IEC) is an identification number necessary for the business involved in exporting from India or importing to India. No person shall make an import or export without having IEC or being exempted from the act.
It is not needed when the service provider is taking benefits in the Foreign Trade Policy. An IEC is issued similarly to the issuance of a PAN to the company. The difference is that it is separately issued by DGFT through an application.
The nature of the organizations is proprietorship, LLP, limited company, trust, HUF, and cooperative society. The organization needs a PAN card and opening bank account details. There are various benefits under government schemes.
The provisions related to IEC are under the foreign trade (development and regulation) act, 1992, Foreign Trade (Regulations) Rules, 1992 and Foreign Trade Policy. The steps involved in the process of registration for IEC are as follows
