HSN Clarification

Dear Friends,

I would like to know when the HSN No.85444290 was added into Customs Tariff. I have verified finance bill for the years 2019, 2020 & 2021 and could not able to find. Prior to 2019 this HSN was not there.

Can any one help me on this. Also advise me is there any other sources, other than finance bill / DGFT notification to find out the changes / additions in HSN

Thanks in advance

Payment of insurance and freight in BOE

Who pays the amount of Insurance and freight while importing goods from outside the country?

Let us say
FOB - 10000 $
Freight - 200 $
Insurance - 112.5 $

These brings CIF - 10312.5 $

Importer is liable to pay the amount of FOB to seller but Insurance and freight are part of bill of Entry

Importer further pays to his CHA ( BCD, Surcharge and IGST) but buyer don't pay for insurance and freight.

But while maintaining books of account, seller account is credited as 10312.5 $ but he doesn't pay for it. Then how to close seller's account in importer's books of account?

Dear Sir
We are SEZ Unit in Gujarat, during FY 2020-21 we have write off Rs 40 lakhs amounts payable to our foreign creditor in dollar. Whether this action makes violation of any custom provisions ??


The Company has 4 Unit in Gujarat. One of the Unit is 100% EOU.
The material has been imported at the unit which is not EOU on payment of custom duty and the same material is transferred (as such) to EOU unit which will be used in Export

Whether the company can avail the benefit of duty drawback or any other incentive for transferring material to EOU ??

Please provide the reference to provisions also

I shipped one Handloom Item to Bangladesh. The courier company informed that customs duty to be paid by the customer is more than (almost double) the invoice value. The customer is refusing to pay the customs duty and release the item.
My query is: If I get the shipment returned by the courier company, do I need to pay and tax/ duty in either Bangladesh or India?
