I want to start my own export/import business. What are the basic requirements to start this business?


I want to start with my export/import business soon.



The very first and important requirement is that your business should be registered with the government of India and should have been set up sometime ago.

Next important thing is the PanCard.

You should also have a current account.

Another important thing is to get the IEC code which is issued by the Government of India.After you get the IEC code, it is important to get the RCMC (Registration-cum-Membership-Certificate).

You should also have the logistics in place.

Help from a customs clearing agent might also be needed for getting your items cleared at the ports,etc.
