MSME Registration In India

GST registered MSMEs can get 2% interest subvention from Government for incremental loans of Rs 1 crores under the MSME Credit Scheme

MSME stands for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. In a developing country like India, MSME industries are the backbone of the economy. Even if the Company is in the manufacturing line or the service line, registrations for both these areas can be obtained through the MSME act. This registration is not yet made mandatory by the Government but it is beneficial to get one’s business registered under this because it provides a lot of benefits in terms of taxation, setting up the business, credit facilities, loans etc. The MSME became operational on October 02, 2006. It was established to promote, facilitate and develop the competitiveness of the micro, small and medium enterprises.

Starting a Business

Many founders are confused about what kind of entity to register when they start their business. Should it be a private limited company, limited liability partnership, partnership firm, one person company or a sole proprietorship. Each of these has very specific advantages and disadvantages. There is no one type for all businesses. A private limited company registration, for example, would be a good fit for any venture that will look for funding at a later stage.

Intellectual Property

Government Registrations

In India, you need a license for everything in business. Started a manufacturing business? You need a GST Registration and a Trade License. For a food business, you need an FSSAI license. Have employees? You need a Professional Tax registration and Shops & Establishments Act Registration. If that's not enough, you also need to file GST Returns and Professional Tax Returns.

Legal Documentation

The worst way to approach business is to just get into new partnerships and arenas without examining consequences. By getting a lawyer to draft contracts or agreements with new vendors, employees and investors, you're ensuring that you have all the downsides covered. At TaxFillingIndia, we connect you to lawyers who will deliver complex documents, from shareholders' agreements and founders' agreements to terms of service/privacy policy and non-disclosure agreements, at a reasonable cost in a few days' time. Well-known startups, such as Holachef and Big Basket, have chosen to connect with a lawyer through us for their documentation work.

Mandatory Compliance

It's not enough to have started a private limited company or an LLP. You need to comply with all the requirements of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Income Tax Act once you do. You need to inform them of every relevant change you make, whether it is adding a director, removing a partner or increasing authorised share capital. You also need to file annual returns and maintain your accounts. In the case of a private limited company, you even need them audited. At TaxFillingIndia, we facilitate all these services completely online. Which means you can engage a professional on retainer for the year and we'll ensure that all the formalities are completed for you while you focus on your business.
