    • Lalit Jain says:

      Dear Mr, there is no provision for manufacturers to claim the refund of accumulated 4% ACD/SAD instead we suggest that you import as a trader in your trading firm, sell the goods to the manufacturing unit without passing 4% ACD, and then you are elligible for the refund in your trading unit.

  43. Dhawal Vora says:

    Sir,

    I have imported an item and paid the duty along with SAD.

    Some of my customers are registered under excise and I have passed SAD to them. While some customers are not under Excise and thus I have put the stamp on the invoice stating credit will not be allowed. My query is as follows

    Total Quantity Importered is 10000 Kgs where 12.5% component is Rs.18 and SAD component is Rs.6.
    I have sold 3000 Kgs under excise and passed on Rs.24 as excise.
    Can I claim SAD refund on the balance 7000 Kgs?

    Also, please let me know if any Consultant is available for Mumbai.

    • Sugandha says:

      Hello Mr. Dhawal Vora,

  58. Chinmay Gailad says:

    Dear All,

    I am a watch collector and I order a lot of stuff from Amazon or Watchshop for my personal use. Sometimes they charge a lot of duty on it sometimes they don’t. I have kept receipts of every payment till date and I have the Postal order tracking no.s for each order. Also if I understand correctly, I should get a full refund of the amount paid because of the following reasons:

    1. None of the watches are Automatic. They are all battery operated.
    2. They are not for furthur sale. They are for my personal usage.

    Can anyone please explain if I am understanding this correctly? If I am wrong, Can someone please explain how much amount will I get back from this? Following are the charges levied by customs on me till date:

    1. Order Value = 18,900(Approx.) Duty Levied = Rs. 3900 (Approx.)
    2. Order Value = 8,900 (Approx.) Duty Levied = Rs. 3282 (Exact) by DHL couriers

    How should I tackle this? What should I do to get this money back? Requesting the help from you all at the earliest.

    Regards,
    Chinmay GAilad

    • Deepak says:

      Hi Chinmay,

      Please note that this is not that you will get refund if you have paid customs duty, if every one gets refund then why should government collect it?

  63. N.Mohan Kumar says:

    The importer lost the Original B.E. is there any procedure to claim the Refund?

  64. S R AGRAWAL says:

    Refund is available only to the importers who sell the imported goods after paying VAT because 4% SAD is charged in lieu of VAT. To give relief to double taxation this refund is being allowed. Any importer who utilize the goods as input is eligible to CENVAT credit of SAD and he is otherwise not required to pay VAT as their is no transaction of sale of such goods. As per Notification he is not entitled to refund of accumulated SAD.

  65. Ajay Chandarana says:

    Dear Rajesh,

    u can avail cenvat credit of excise portion, but there are extreme chances of show cause notice but with ur elaborative example.. u can have a favour from Tribunal.

  71. Rajesh, Mumbai says:

    Dear Author,

    I have a Logical Query.

    On an import of Rs.100/-

    Importers pay 10% Custom Duty (Rs.10).

    It becomes 110/-(100+10)

    On this, further Excise Duty @ 12% paid (Rs.13.2)

    It becomes Rs 123.2 (Rs.110 + 13.2)

    Further,On Custom and Excise duty portion i.e.Rs.23.2 (Rs.10 + 13.2), A total 3% cess of Rs.0/696 is paid which is 0/30 on custom and 0/396 on Excise.

    Further 4% ACD/SAD i.e Rs.4/928 is paid on Rs. 123.2 which is refundable to importers resellers.

    Hence Total Taxes of Rs.28.824 on an import of Rs.100 goes to government as follows.

    Custom Duty Rs.10/00
    Excise Duty Rs.13.20 (Cenvat credit allowable)
    Cess on Custom Duty Rs. 0/30
    Cess on Excise Duty Rs. 0/396
    ACD/SAD Rs. 4/928 ( Refundable as mentioned above)
    ___________
    Total Rs.28.824

    My Query : Why Cess of Rs.0/396 paid on Excise is not allowed as cenvat.?

    In all cases of Excise duty and Service tax there is cess of 3% which is allowed as Cenvat credit but why not for aforesaid.I hope someone will clarify with logical reply.

  72. Ashok Aggarwal says:

    CBEC has issued Circular No. 18/2010-Cus dated 8th July, 2010 clarifying that the certificate issued by the statutory auditor or CA will be accepted and production of Balance sheet or Profit & Loss account will not be insisted. Moreover it has been clarified that the sanctioning authority will not call for any documents other than those listed therein. However in practice officers at different custom houses keep asking various different documents taking plea that in the list the last item says “any other document considered necessary for sanctioning the claim”.

    Unfortunately there is no real protection to the officers in case any unscrupulous claimant takes undue benefit and there is no accountability for delaying sanction of claim on flimsy grounds and for asking unnecessary documents in violation of Board’s instructions. Hence number of pending claims is going up in all Custom Houses. This situation is conducive for flourishing of a few middlemen at each Custom House who get claims processed quickly for a fee in league with certain officials with vested interests.

    Circular No. 6/2008-Cus says that interest on refunds under notification no. 102/2007-Cus will not be admissible but this portion of the circular has been quashed by Hon’ble Madras High Court in case of KSJ Metals (Impex) Vs Under Secretary [2013(294)ELT 211(Mad)]. hence the department is liable to pay interest from the expiry of three months from the date of filing of claim till date of payment.

    Dear Nikunj,

    The refund is only available on the products which are imported for further sale. The credit accumulated can not be available as refund but it can be used for discharging central excise liability.

  75. Deepak says:

    HI,

    If the manufacturer is claiming credit then he will not be able to claim refund as well. The Scheme of refund is for those importers who cannot claim the amount as credit.
