Import Export Code registration or IEC registration is mandatory for a company or
firm or individual for exporting or importing goods. Without IEC code registration, it is not possible
to bring in goods from China or send goods to Dubai. IEC is issued by the Directorate General of Foreign
Trade (DGFT) and it is a 10 digit code. IE code has a validity of lifetime.
IEC code is also requisite for financial transactions such as remitting money abroad or receiving money from abroad. IEC is not required for export of services such as outsourcing services. IEC Registration in Delhi, NCR, Mumbai and other Indian cities can be done through ca4you and costs Rs 3,000 in Delhi.
