Legal Basis of MSME returns,: The requirement to furnish information through MSME Form 1 stems from Section 405 of the Companies Act, 2013, which was introduced by the Central Government to protect the interests of MSMEs.

What is Consequence of Delayed Payments to MSME Vendors:

  • Section 16 of the MSME Act covers the consequences of paying MSME suppliers after the due date. According to this section, the buyer will be liable to pay interest to the MSME at a rate equal to three times the bank rate announced by the RBI if the buyer does not pay the MSME within 45 days of the acceptance or deemed acceptance of goods or services (assuming a due date is agreed upon in writing between the buyer and the supplier).
  • The Reserve Bank of India may modify the interest rate, and the MSME Samadhaan portal may adjust the interest rate in accordance with that notification.  Every month, the interest should compound.

Penalties for Non-compliance: Failure to comply with Section 405(1) attracts penalties as per Section 405(4) of the Companies Act, 2013. The penalties are:

  • A penalty of Rs. 20,000 for the company.
  • A penalty of Rs. 20,000 for every officer in default.
  • In case of continuing failure, an additional penalty of Rs. 1,000 per day may be imposed, up to a maximum of Rs. 300,000.

Reporting by Statutory Auditor: The statutory auditor of the company is required to include a report in the financial statements regarding the delay in payment to MSME vendors. This report should also cover provisions made for loans related to MSMEs.
