Procedure for e-commerce exports through Post and clarification on personal imports
Exports by Post Regulations, 2018
Clearance of goods through FPOs
In order to facilitate exports and give a fillip to the global outreach of India’s exporters via e-commerce, the “Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC)” has issued Circular No. 14/2018-Customs dated 04/06/2018, Notification no. 48/2018- Customs (N.T) and instructions dated 04/06/2018 regarding Procedure for e-commerce exports through Post and clarification on personal imports, Exports by Post Regulations, 2018 and also Clearance of goods through FPOs.
For the convenience of members, important points of circular/ instruction are reproduced as follows:
Any IEC holder exporting goods through the FPO, will be eligible for zero rating of exports, by way of IGST refund or discharge of LUT. Those who do not wish to avail this facility or fall in the category of Exempted/Non - Taxable are also permitted to export under the same procedure.
In absence of EDI system at FPOs, the Postal Bill of Export (PBE-I) for e-commerce exports will be processed in manual environment for the time being. However, for the purpose of GST, data will be captured and uploaded through an off-line utility (ICAN) provided by DG(Systems).
Members interested in e-Commerce are requested to take note of the same. For further details of the procedure the above said circular/ instruction is available for download using below links-
