Sub : Refund of IGST paid on export products

Dear Member

As members are aware, Exporters have the option of paying the applicable Integrated Goods and Services Tax (IGST) on export products ( i.e. IGST can be paid at the time of exports) and then claim refund for such IGST paid

We have now received a communication from Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO). The details are given below..

  • We have informed by the Customs Department at Chennai (Sea/Air) that large number of IGST refund claims could not BE scrolled out due to various errors. In this regard, we are attaching herewith a Guide on IGST refund in ICES for your ready reference and doing the needful. This guide lists out common errors committed while filing shipping bills/ GST returns on account of which the IGST refund could not be processed. All members may carefully go through the enclosed Guide on IGST refund and do the needful.
  • In case of EGM errors or EGM not filed, members may request the CHA to do the needful.
  • PFMS Error List (Bank Account Validation Error) is also enclosed. . The exporter has to contact EDI Department at Customs Chennai along with DBK Bank account details

Members may kindly note the above.

Thanks and regards
R. Ramesh Kumar
Executive Director
