What is MSME Registration?

Small scale industries play a essential role in the socio-economic development of India. To promote and motivate these small-scale industries, the authorities of the country created the MSMED Act. The Act used to be created to hold a listing of all the industries registered as MSME or SSI. The document aided in offering support and incentives to these firms. Furthermore, SSI helped in the employment of human beings at little capital investments.

FAQs on MSME Registration
For how long is a Provisional Registration Certificate (PRC) valid?
The PRC expires at the end of five years, at which point you may re-apply if the unit is not yet operational, or if the unit exceeds investment limits set by the MSMED Act. Once you commence operations, you can apply for the Permanent License.
How does SSI/MSME help me get a loan from a bank?
All banks and other financial institutions recognise MSMEs and have created special schemes for them. This usually includes priority sector lending, which means that the likelihood of your business being sanctioned a loan is high. Bank loan interest rates will also be lower. There may also be preferential treatment in case of delay in repayment.
What factors are not counted as investment?
For a registration, total plant and machinery cost should be up to Rs. 25 crore for manufacturing units and Rs. 10 crore for service units. While calculating this number, the value of land and building will not be counted toward the total investment. Also, the original cost of the equipment and plant and machinery is taken into account. Depreciation cannot be factored in.
What benefits are given by state and central government?
Most states offer those units registered under the MSMED Act a subsidy on power, taxes, and entry to state-run industrial estates. In particular, there is a sales tax exemption in most states and purchase preferences on goods produced. Depending on your business, you may also enjoy an excise exemption scheme and exemption from certain direct taxes in the initial years of your business.
