CBIC introduces simplified auto registration for IEC holders at ICEGATE
New Delhi, May 7 (KNN) To attract importers and exporters for registration on ICEGATE and to provide them various information services including reports, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes (CBIC) has introduced a simplified auto registration for the IEC holders.
“IEC holders (Importer/Exporter) can now register at ICEGATE without digital Signature. Registration is allowed with IEC and any of one GSTIN attached to it. Please choose one GSTIN carefully, pertaining to the IEC,” the CBIC said.
The simplified registration module in ICEGATE is designed to register at the ICEGATE without the need to upload the Digital Signature Certificate (DSC), PAN verification, document upload to ICEGATE and approval procedure.
However, IEC holders registered under Simplified Auto Registration category are not permitted to file Customs documents.
In connection with this, the Board has also issued an advisory explaining the different cases of simplified registration process:https://www.icegate.gov.in/Download/Advisory_for_Simplified_%20Registration_at_ICEGATE_v1.pdf
