List of documents required for IEC modification

The Import Export Code (IEC) is an important document. It is a necessity for people who undertake the business of import and export. In an earlier article, we explained the documents required for obtaining IEC. In this article, we cover the list of documents required for IEC modification.

The documents required for IEC modifications are different for every business structure. The headings below feature the business structure and under those headings we cover the changes and the corresponding documents. Bear in mind that only those documents are to be filed that correspond to the change required. For e.g. if the PAN details have changed, then only a copy of the modified PAN will be needed. Other documents pertaining to the other changes are not required.

Note that the PAN number once issued for any person/entity remains the same throughout the life of the concerned. It never changes. If the PAN card is lost/damaged, the concerned can file for a duplicate PAN card and NOT a new PAN. Possessing more than one PAN number is illegal. However, you may have more than one PAN card but not two different PAN numbers. The details on the PAN such as Date of Birth, Address, father’s name, etc. may be changed if there is a correction required.
