Msme Delayed Payment Rules

  • Non classé

i. Payment of interest: The Company shall pay interest on late payments to suppliers registered under BEMPs. The interest rate is three times higher than the bank rate communicated by the reserve bank. The law stipulates that payment for delivery made by a MSME must be released by the buyer within the external period of 45 days from the date of acceptance or acceptance of delivery, unless the parties have agreed otherwise. Late payments result in compound interest with monthly balances on the defaulting debtor at three times the bank interest rate notified by the Reserve Bank of India. The associations express the views of the MSME sector. The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Act of 2006 further strengthened the role of the association in policy development and implementation by granting them membership in the Advisory Committee and the National MSME Committee in accordance with the provisions of the MSMED Act of 2006. Participation in the Advisory Committee makes these associations participatory and participates in decision-making. The NBMSME also provides them with the platform to address issues that agitate their members or those of concern to the sector and to make appropriate recommendations to the government for the development and promotion of MSMEs.

The MSMED Act of 2006 also provides for membership in associations in MSEFC established by the respective states/UTs that ………. until……. The disputes concerned late payments. MSME associations are also members of all steering committees of autonomous bodies affiliated to MSMEs MO. Even at the state level, MSME associations are members of state-level advisory committees, which were established to facilitate the promotion and development of the MSME sector at the state level. By supporting numerous accompanying measures within the framework of the Private Partnership (PPP), the government offers these associations the opportunity to participate directly in the promotion and development of MSMEs. With the aim of strengthening associations, the government has launched a new programme of « capacity building », database strengthening and industry/business advocacy » in line with the commitment of the « advertising package ». Detailed capacity-building programme Upon acceptance of the application in the prescribed form, the relevant MSEFC will send a notice to the purchaser requesting immediate payment of the amount due within a specified period of time. If the buyer does not initiate payment within the period specified in the notice, MSMEs may submit a request for late payment by attaching the necessary documents on the portal in accordance with the provisions of the law. Current mechanisms include informal follow-ups, with less than 1% of eligible companies, representing only 1.3% of the late payment reserve, using the Samadhaan MSME portal to officially record delays. The lack of tangible results and high rejections have made it a mere submission tool. The last resort to go to court is plagued by problems such as scarce resources, asymmetry of power and an already overburdened judicial system.

The MSME Samadhaan portal allows MSMEs to file their cases of late payment against the buyer of goods/services directly with the Micro and Small Enterprise Facilitation Council (MSEFC). These complaints will be visible to central ministries/departments/CPSE/state governments, etc. to take proactive action. In accordance with Section 18 of the MSME Act, in the event of late payment of more than 45 days from the date of acceptance or acceptance, KKU providers may contact the Micro and Small Enterprise Facilitation Council (MSEFC) established under the Act in all states/UTs. State MSEFC, after reviewing the case filed by the entity, will instruct the purchasing unit to pay the amount owing, as well as interest, in accordance with the provisions of the MSMED Act of 2006. Assuming that a micro or small enterprise registered with a MSME provides goods or services, the buyer is obliged to make the payment no later than the date of the agreement between the buyer and the micro or small enterprise. Sections 20 and 21 of the law require state governments to establish a Micro and Small Enterprise Facilitation Council (MSEFC) to resolve disputes over the submission of late payments. Any MSME with a valid Udyog Aadhar (UAM) or Udyam registration may apply for such facilitation.

Any reference to the MSEFC must be decided within 90 days of the reference date. The provisions of this Act are implemented by the MSEFC, which is chaired by the Director of Industry of the State concerned/UT. However, MSMEs continue to face serious problems and disputes related to late payments, suffocating cash flow and insolvency. A recent report by the Global Alliance for Mass Entrepreneurship (GAME), Dun & Bradstreet and Omidyar Network India shows that 80% of annual late payments amounting to 8.73 lakh crore were due to micro and small suppliers. Interestingly, 72.4% of these cases can be avoided, provided there is an effective and efficient way to counter the threat of late payments. § 15: In no case shall the period agreed between the Supplier and the Buyer for the written payment of the invoice exceed forty-five days from the date of acceptance or the date of accepted acceptance. i. Electronic form: The company must file the electronic form MSME-1 with the Commercial Registry every six months, mentioning all transactions, regardless of where payment is made after 45 days. Table 1 presents different scenarios related to the date of payment to BEMP for FIMPs.
