S.D.PATHAK & COMPANYConsultants in Customs, Imports & Exports
Licensed Custom House Agents
For conducting any transaction in Foreign Trade or International Business, an Importer or Exporter should either have knowledge of various laws and regulations mentioned below or should have a reputed consultant along with a reputed Custom Clearing Agent to guide and assist him complete the transaction:
- Foreign Trade (Development & Regulation) Act 1992
- Foreign Trade (Regulations) Rules 1993
- Foreign Trade Policy 2004-2009
- Foreign Exchange Management Act 1999
- Customs Act 1962
- Customs Tariff Act 1975
- Central Excise Act 1944
- Central Excise Tariff Act 1985
- Conservation of Foreign Exchange and Prevention of Smuggling Activities Act 1974
- Marine Insurance Act 1963
- Carriage of goods by Sea Act 1925
- Carriage by Air Act 1972
and many other acts and regulations.
Although these Acts are made by different Ministries of Govt. of India, they have empowered Custom Department to ensure compliance of rules by Importers/ Exporters because only Custom Department is present at the Borders/ Frontiers. Therefore the Custom Department perform a very major role in a Foreign Trade Transaction. Customs Department grants license to a a person to act as a "Custom House Agent" to guide the Importers & Exporters about the Various regulations under Customs Act and other Allied Acts mentioned above. Therefore it can be said that a Licensed Custom House Agent also perform a major role in a Foreign Trade Transaction. In fact, the Custom House Agent acts as a bridge between Customs Department & Importers/Exporters.
It may be said that, while a reputed Consultant in Foreign Trade Acts as a good guide and advisor for an Importer /Exporter, a reputed and knowledgeable Customs House Agent or Customs Clearing Agent acts as the representative of Importer / Exporter before the Customs Department, and gets the goods cleared through the procedures of Indian Customs after ensuring that all the legal compliance under Custom Act & other Allied Acts have been adhered to by an Importer/Exporter.
From the above, it can be inferred that a company, who is having a combination of both i.e. who is a reputed Consultant in Foreign Trade as well as a reputed Custom Clearance Agent, becomes essential, inevitable and ideal for any Importer / Exporter who needs a smooth sailing in the entire process. Needless to mention that any mistakes done in documentation and declaration before Customs can be very expensive because it may lead to confiscation of goods and customs may levy fine and personal penalty for releasing such goods in lieu of confiscation. We are one such company which provides both the services mentioned above.
