Enterprise Registration Simplified for MSMEs from 1st July

Starting from 1st July, enterprises can register themselves based on Aadhaar number alone. This is as per the new norms notified by the Government on 26th June 2020.   The enterprises are no longer required to upload certificates and documents for registering online. They can provide these details with a self-declaration. This new process is named as “Udyam Registration” and is made possible after the successful integration of the registration process with those of GST and Income Tax. The details provided in the self-declaration will be duly verified by the authorities based on GSTIN and PAN. Those who do not have Aadhaar can approach the Single Window Systems along with their identity proof for Aadhaar enrollment request, bank passbook copy, voter ID card, driving license, or passport. The Single Window Systems will facilitate registration after receiving the Aadhaar number.

Government schemes for starting MSME

MSME full form is micro, small and medium enterprises. The micro, small, medium enterprises were formed in the year 2006, by which we can define what are micro, small and medium enterprises. Enterprise is nothing but it is the same as a company or a business.

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises

According to the MSME Act 2006,  the term microenterprise can be given to a company that has an investment within 25 lakhs; a small enterprise where the investment is between 25 lakhs and five crores. On the other hand, a  medium enterprise is a company where the investment is anywhere between five to ten crores.

These investments excluded the land and building expenditures along with other items which are clearly mentioned in the ministry of small scale industries on the serial number NO.S.O1772(E) dated October 5, 2006. This investment is only for the original cost and this is only for production or manufacturing sector.

Service sector

Investment in the service sector for micro-enterprises should not be more than 10 lakhs, for smaller ones should not exceed 2 crores, taking into account the medium enterprises, it should not be more than 5 crores, but the minimum expense made should be at least 2 crores.
