Timely Payment of Invoices & Cheques

Business enterprises particularly the Micro Small & Medium Enterprise (MSMEs) face tremendous hardships due to delay/defaults in realization of their sales invoices/bills and cheques. Show More.. Show less..

Delayed or non-realization of dues from buyers is leading to many accounts becoming NPAs and forced towards insolvency or liquidation. The owners and operational creditors of such enterprises end up giving up their businesses for no fault of theirs due to non-payment of their bills by their buyers. Such businessmen face the threat of being closed or taken over thereby destroying their reputation, goodwill, social status and causing hardship for themselves and employees.

This problem has been hanging for a long time without any satisfactory preventive solution from the available administrative or legal framework.

    "The Micro Small and Medium Enterprises Development Act 2006" section 15 and 16 had made provisions to mitigate the problem of delayed payment, whereby it was provided that all payments of bills and receivables of MSMEs should be paid in not more than 45 days and any buyer who fails to make payment to the MSMEs as per agreed terms or maximum within 45 days, would be liable to pay monthly compounded interest at three times the Bank Rate notified by the RBI. Further, The MSME Development Act 2006 section 18 also made provision that in case of any dispute with regard to realization of principal and interest, the MSMEs could make a reference to 'The Micro and Small Enterprises Facilitation Council’.

  • MSME Facilitation Councils

    Section 20 of The MSMEs Development Act provided that these Micro and Small Enterprises (MSME) Facilitation Councils (MSMEFC) would be established by the State Governments and conduct proceedings to resolve all the referred cases within a period of 90 days from the date of receiving their references.

    At the time of enactment of MSME Development Act in 2006, it was felt that the aforementioned provisions would deter the buyers of MSMEs’ products from committing payment defaults, but the experience of last 12 years indicates that the mechanism of establishing MSME Facilitation Councils for resolution of the cases of delayed payments has not proved to be very effective as firstly, only few cases are referred to these Councils as compared to total number of defaults & delays and secondly, the units apprehend retribution by way of loss of their future business from their buyers if they report their cases of delays to facilitation councils and demand penal interest.

    In view of delays in resolution of cases filed before the MSME Facilitation Councils, there is a need to devise alternative solutions to resolve this issue, as the MSMEs are caught in a vicious cycle, where they avoid reporting their defaults to such Councils so that they do not suffer on business relationship, despite being vulnerable and at the same time, are able to realize their payments.

    Therefore, In spite of above legal provisions MSMEs are not able to realize their bills and invoices on time as it takes long time in getting any relief from the legal provisions.
