An IEC is a 10-character alpha-numeric number allotted to a person that is mandatory for undertaking any export/import activities. With a view to maintain the unique identity of an entity (firm/company/LLP etc.), consequent upon introduction/implementation of GST, IEC will be equal to PAN and will be separately issued by DGFT based on an application.
No Export/Import without IEC:
Only one IEC shall be issued against a single PAN. Multiple IECs against a single PAN stands deactivated suo-motu after 31.03.2015.
If an IEC holder does not wish to operate allotted IEC, he may surrender the same to the issuing authority. On receipt, the issuing authority shall immediately cancel the IEC and electronically transmit it to DGFT and Customs authorities.
1. Modifications in e-IEC’s/ IEC’s can be done online only. Applicants seeking modification in their IEC’s may log on to dgft.nic.in and click on Importer Exporter Code (IEC) under Quick Links and select “Modify your IEC” to amend their e-IEC’s and IEC’s in physical format by paying requisite fees and submitting requisite documents to the concerned jurisdictional RA, from where IEC was originally issued. List of RAs, along with their jurisdiction is given in Appendix 1A.
2. An application for modification may be made for change in details like name, address, constitution, ownership in Proprietorship firms, change in nature of the firm e.g. from proprietorship to partnership etc.
1. RAs shall consider applications seeking modification in IEC, involving change in PAN, by ensuring that liabilities of the previous applicant/applicant firm are transferred to the new applicant/applicant firm whose PAN will be reflecting in the modified IEC. RAs must also share the modified IEC, with the changed PAN incorporated in it, with all concerned authorities.
2. RAs shall also take cognizance of the applications digitally signed by power of attorney holders/authorized signatories.
When an IEC holder seeks modification/ Change of Branch Office/ Head Office/Registered Office address in its IEC and which involves a shift in its jurisdictional RA, a request to that effect will have to be made to RA concerned under whose jurisdiction the applicant exists. On the basis of this request, the RA (Custodian of the IEC File till now) will process such requests and amend IEC, if found appropriate, under intimation to the RA under whose jurisdiction the applicant wants transfer. The new RA shall allow the person in its new address to carry out necessary functions and also apply for eligible benefits as per FTP.
