Small enterprises are defined as those with a capital investment of more than one crore rupees but less than ten crore rupees in plant and machinery or equipment, and a turnover of more than five crore rupees but less than fifty crore rupees.
A Medium Enterprise is defined as a company that invests more than ten crore rupees in plant and machinery or equipment but not more than fifty crore rupees in revenue and has a revenue of more than fifty crore rupees but not more than two hundred and fifty crore rupees.
Note 1: If a company surpasses the ceiling limits for either the turnover or investment criteria for an existing category, it will be shifted to the next higher category based on the investment and turnover requirements. Only if an organization meets both the investment and turnover criteria will it be placed in the lowest tier.
Note 2: The aggregate limit of sales and investment is used to decide whether the firm is micro, small, or medium, and all units with the same PAN number but different GSTIN numbers are treated as a single organization.
Udyam Registration Application:
Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises must apply online for Udyam registration on the Udyam Registration Portal based on self-declaration with no obligation to furnish any papers. A firm will be awarded a permanent identifying number, known as the “Udyam Registration Number,” as well as an e-certificate, known as the “Udyam Registration Certificate,” after a successful registration.
Calculation of Udyam Registration Investment Value:
The value of a plant, machinery, or equipment investment will be determined by the previous year’s Income Tax Return filed under the Income Tax Act of 1961. The promoter’s self-declaration will be used to determine the worth of a newly created company’s plant, machinery, or equipment.
The purchase price (excluding GST) will be used to determine the investment value when purchasing any plant, machinery, or equipment.
The term “plant and machinery or equipment” must have the same meaning as “plant and machinery” under the Income Tax Act of 1961, and must encompass all tangible assets (other than land and building and furniture and fittings).
Udyam Registration’s turnover is calculated as follows:
For the purpose of determining an enterprise’s turnover for categorization reasons, all information must be linked to the GSTN portal or the Income Tax site, and the value of export will be deducted from the overall turnover of the organization.
