Composite Criteria Of Investment And Turnover Of Enterprises
According to the new definitions imposed by Government:
An enterprise that has an investment of less than 1 crore rupees in plant and machinery, equipment in service sectors, and turnover not exceeding more than 5 crore rupees is known as a micro-enterprise.
A small enterprise or company would be one with an investment of more than 1 crore but less than 10 crores and less than fifty crores turnover.
A medium enterprise accordingly is the one that has an investment of less than 50 crores in plant and machinery or the equipment and its turnover should not exceed 250 crores.
Definitions For The Existing Enterprises
With the reclassification of the MSME, the composite criteria of turnover and investment would decide the category of existing enterprise that was defined by the previous criteria of investment. If a registered enterprise exceeds the investment and turnover price of its present criteria it will be considered in the higher category and similarly, if an enterprise exceeds the lower line referred to in the new definition it would be categorized in the lower category.
The enterprises registered before 30th June 2020 will not be valid if they are not registered under the Udyam memorandum provided by the Government. The enterprises that were registered after 30-06-2020 will be valid until 31-06-2021 of next year.
Is Udyog Aadhar And Udyam Registration The Same?
What Is Udyog Aadhar?
Udyog Aadhar is a simple process that was introduced by the government in 2015 after annuling the entrepreneur’s memorandum to simplify the registration process for MSMEs by giving them the Udyog Aadhar registration and a unique identification number provided that the directorate body provides his/her Aadhar number. The Udyog Aadhar registration process has been out of value as the government has issued the notification for the registration process by availing Udyam number for renewal.
What Is Udyam Registration?
Udyam Registration is the re-classified version of Udyog Aadhaar to bring all the existing and upcoming enterprises under a single registration process following the new criteria Udyam registration will be mandatory for all the Micro, Small And Medium Enterprises for classification and availing the services, subsidies, and schemes provided by the government.
Hence, Udyog Registration and Udyam registration are not the same but they are both registration procedures for the MSMEs. Udyog Aadhar registration will not be needed anymore.
Udyam registration will now provide a number to the enterprises upon receiving the concerned authority’s Aadhar number and within the process time after the Udyam registration, the enterprise has to reupload their information status of GST and ITR in the government portal, otherwise, its stature will be rendered as suspended.
In case of a change in the stature of an enterprise, it will be valued on the provided information of GST costing and ITR in the plant, machinery, and equipment. In case of enhancing the stature, the enterprise will maintain its status until the maturity date of one year from the close of the year of registration. And in the opposite case of degradation of status due to reclassification or changes in investment or turnover or both, the enterprise will receive all the facilities of present status till the next financial year starts.
