I purchased some product from China(value around 3 lakhs), and I made the mistake of paying through Card instead of Remittance, I have to submit the BOE to bank as per law but Bank is telling me they cannot accept this BOE since the payment was not done using Remittance. Kindly advise me how to solve this problem.

Logically you need to submit Bill of Entry to the Bank of which card you have used for remitting the payment for import.

I know but what happened is the bank is telling me that they can only accept bill of entry for the payments made through remittance, they said that on the software its not reflecting any payment made that they can knock off against the bill of entry.

p.s. are there any professional lawyers or accountants that specialize in these sort of issues? i wouldnt mind consulting one on professional basis to sort out the issue.

Now you do one thing you ask your banker In FEMA where is it written that Bill of ntry can only be accepted if payment is made through  remittance ? Secondly the software of bank related to credit card must be showing your payment.

So I finally received the following email from HDFC

Remittance of funds from India are subject to statutory Exchange Control Regulations governed by Reserve Bank of India.

Thank you for updation.So, it means your problem is resolved.I hope you will be knowing about Form A2, it is a formality as per FEMA to purchase of Foreign Currency for outward remittance for Import.

Hi, I think the problem is not solved, my query to the bank was whether it is possible to pay through Card or one has to do Remittance, and it looks like they are saying that one has to fill the form A2 and buy foreign currency first before making payment for the import.

Hello, i answered their email and asked them to elaborate and make clear if card payment is accepted or not but they usually take 3 or 4 days to answer, they kinda try to make me call their representative and talk to them on the phone, which i feel is quite useless since there is no written record of what they say. When I opened the bank account in HDFC I was told that I will be able to make Remittance for import online and now I discover they dont have such feature, and they also verbally told me to use Card for payment and now i am stuck with this problem.

Dear Steph,

 

If your banker ask for A2 then you need to ask your banker that you have paid for the item what you have purchased ie for import and for that Form A1 is applicable and not Form A2.Form A2 is applicable for remittance other then physical import.
