What is the IE Code?
If you are importing or exporting any service or goods, you have to apply for IE code registration. You have to apply for IE code to the DGFT (Directorate General of Foreign Trades), the government of India as DGCFT is the registration issuing department. There is no expiry date for IE code. It stays valid even if no import-export is conducted. Its status is revoked only if the business shuts down or the application is made to suspend the registration. There are no other compliances like regular return filings or annual return filing, and hence it is easy to register and easy to maintain.
