Declaration of valid GST Identification Number in Customs documents would be mandatory with effect from July 1, 2017

June 8, 2017 FISCAL 6

Central Board of Excise and Customs has issued an important announcement for Importers and Exporters with respect to GST implementation. Declaration of valid GSTIN (GST Identification Number) in Customs documents (Bill of Entry/Shipping Bill) would be mandatory w.e.f. 01-07-2017, the likely implementation date of GST, to avail IGST credit on Imports or GST refund on exports.

The declared GSTIN would be validated for correct Import Export Code (IEC)/ PAN linkage. Accordingly, during GSTIN registration, all importers and exporters should ensure declaration of correct Import Export Code and the same PAN earlier registered with Director General of Foreign Trade(DGFT) for getting IEC.

In case of any difference in PAN declared for GSTIN vis-à-vis the PAN declared for IEC registration, amendment of PAN in IEC may be undertaken immediately. All importers and exporters may make use of the special drive by GSTN from 01-06-2017 to 15-06-2017 for updation of IEC in GSTIN
