Why Udyam Verification is Important Before Onboarding MSMs

Table of Contents

Onboarding reliable micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMs) always keeps you on the right side of the law. The companies who have completed their MSME registration process are issued an Udyam certificate. This helps in verifying the identity of any business as a micro, small, or medium enterprise.

Classification of MSMs

With the new process, a company is now classified based on various factors into three types, which are:

  • Micro enterprises: The companies whose total investment does not go above 1 crore rupees and total turnover is not more than 5 crore rupees.
  • Small enterprises: The companies whose total investment is not more than 10 crores and the turnover is not more than 50 crore.
  • Medium enterprises: The companies whose total investment is not more than 50 crores and the turnover is not more than 250 crores.
