My dear fellow exporters,

According to a recent circular, exporters can now go back to paying the free-on-board (FOB) value of exports based on the rupee value according to the exchange rate notified by the customs department.

The circular also allowed self-certification for higher duty drawback in order to reduce the transaction time and cost. It also clarified that while supplying to SEZs for export purposes or otherwise, traders need to mention whether it was being done under an LUT (letter of undertaking) or a bond.

After the GST implementation, our member exporters had raised the issue of lack of clarity on norms relating to submission of bonds or LUTs for clearance of export consignments and sought IGST exemption. However, earlier this  month, the government had said big exporters with a good track record can give an LUT to the customs department while small exporters would have to give a bond to seek IGST exemption. But problems in this regard have persisted.

The government had mentioned that those exporters who had received inward forex remittances exceeding Rs 1 crore in the previous financial year were eligible for LUTs. On the other hand, a bond now needs to be accompanied by a bank guarantee to the tune of 15 per cent of bond amount.

For more details, please visit our website (www.eepcindia.org).

India moves to GST system

Prachachart Turakij | July 17, 2017

Since Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi assumed his position in 2014, India has implemented several major reforms. India has announced the `Make in India’ policy attracting Foreign Direct Investment to establish their production base in the country in order to enhance its production sector and increase the ratio of the industrial sector to 25% of total GDP by 2022. India has also launched its new Goods and Services Tax system, which has been in effect since 1st July 2017 in order to simplify its tax system. The International Monetary Fund forecasts that the new tax system will help to push Indian growth to 8% by 2021. India’s tax reforms will have positive effects on Thai goods exported to India such as plastic beads, machinery parts, and electronic parts. We may also see an improvement in consumer products exported to India such as cereal, milk and seasoning. India’s tax reforms also helped to increase confidence of Thai investors to invest in India while the ‘Make in India’ policy will also help support India to become one of the largest global manufacturing hubs.
