(Export / Import of Goods & Services & Remittances)
With Case studies
Discussions will be on the basis of the Reserve Bank’s latest Master Circulars dated 1st July 2016.

With the liberalization of economy, Govt of India, through Reserve Bank relaxed most of the regulations in order to boost the international trade.  From the time FEMA was introduced in June 2000, till today lot of relaxations have been introduced by Reserve Bank for smooth facilitation of interalia, trade.  In most of the cases exchange control administration are decentralized and the Authorized Dealers are given discretionary powers to handle the transactions.

In case of exports, dispatch of documents directly to consignee, reduction in invoice value, write off, netting off export receivables, allowing export through ware house abroad, agency commission remittance, export claims, handling advance remittance and delayed presentation of regulatory documents etc., powers are delegated to authorized dealers for approving such transactions.

Likewise, import transactions are also liberalized.  Authorized dealers are delegated with requisite powers to approve advance remittance for imports with/without the guarantee from the overseas seller, trade credit transactions (supplier’s credit /buyer’s credit), merchanting trade and high-sea sales etc.,

Regarding outward remittances Authorised Dealers can permit most of the current account transactions and also capital account transactions subject to certain limits.

In spite of the wide range of delegated authority, still there are some gaps in understanding and interpreting these guidelines.

In this program, most of the operational issues will be discussed with appropriate case studies so as to get clarity.

Discussions will be on the basis of the Reserve Bank of India’s latest Master Circulars which are effective from 1st July 2016.

This program will specifically address the issues relating to:

  • Clear distinction between current and capital account transactions
  • Export related regulatory issues – trade discount, reduction in invoice value, Regulatory waiver, dispatch of documents directly to the consignee, advance remittance, write off, netting off
  • Import related regulatory issues – time limit for import payment, interest payments, advance remittance for imports, import of services, trade credit – supplier’s credit and buyers credit, High sea sales, Merchanting trade.
