SEIS in Brief
SEIS Duty Credit Scrip is awarded under the Service Exports from India Scheme of the Foreign Trade Policy 2015-20 (FTP) to service exporters who earn for their services in free foreign exchange.
Simply explained, "Duty Credit Scrips" are an alternate form of cash used only for purposes specified by the government like payment of customs duties etc.
It is provided with an objective to encourage export of services. The amount of award ranges upto 7% of net foreign exchange earned for the service sector depending upon various factors.
If you are a service provider located in India and if you provide services to foreign entities or clients you may be eligible to avail such reward scrips from the government based on certain criteria like- the type of service provided, how and where the service was rendered etc.
In a few cases such scrips are awarded even where no direct foreign exchange has been earned by the service provider but the payment received is treated as deemed foreign exchange under the provisions of FTP for SEIS.
The SEIS Scrip is freely transferable “duty credit scrip” and can be sold under the GST regime as “Nil rated supplies” (from13-Oct-2017 onwards). If a service exporter does not use the Duty Credit Scrip, he can sell it in market.
SEIS is similar to other duty credit scrips like MEIS, FPS, FMS or VKGUY in operation.
