What is AD Code ?

For starting an Import and Export business in India, you must have two registrations as per Government regulations. One is IEC Registration, and another one is AD Code Registration. Without these two registrations, you can not start an import-export business in India. The AD Code is required for customs clearance of your Goods.

An AD( Authorised Dealer) Code is a 14-digit number issued. The purpose behind the AD Code is to ensure that foreign currency transactions in an exporter's current account are from a legal channel or not.

Why AD Code Registration Required?

AD Code Registration is a must for many reasons in carrying out export business. The significant reasons are as follows:-

1. Exporters who want to export goods from India must register the AD Code.

2. A Shipping Bill is one of three documents that must be submitted for export customs clearance. Without an AD Code registration, you cannot produce a Shipping Bill on Icegate, Indian Customs' electronic data exchange platform.

3. AD Code Registration allows you to transfer credit to the trader's current account directly.

4. Any Government advantages you want to avail of, for example, duty rebates and exemptions, GST (Goods and Services Tax) refunds, and so on, are credited straight to your current account if you have an AD Code registered with customs.

5. Registering or submitting the AD code in each & every port from where you want to export shipment is a mandatory requirement.

6. When exporting goods, exporters must provide the IE Code as well as the AD Code.

7. Furthermore, while receiving money from Abroad, Banks can demand the AD code of the business/individual.
