No, there is no tax levied on IEC but Custom duty may be applicable since it depends on the category of the product imported or exported. Contact us Now.

Generally, it takes 5-10 days after submitting all the required documents with the DGFT. It is not necessary to show proof of any import or export to obtain Import Export Code.

IEC modification can be done online in your IEC application by resubmitting the application to the DGFT once again with all the essential documents. The IEC modification fee is also required to be paid.

No, there is no such requirement since it is only a license that permits the import and export of goods.

If you have taken the IEC license in the new process e-IEC online, then you can download your certificate any time by login into the IEC portal with your details. But if you had taken your IEC in the physical process, then you have to re-apply for e-IEC with all the documents, and DGFT will provide you a new certificate in the online format.
