Print your Entrepreneurs Memorandum (EM) Number, to get identified as Micro & Small Enterprise

Whether Schedule VI Update of Companies Act is followed in Spirit ?

Apprehensions have been expressed that in the absence of the identification of MSE Supplier on its supply order/ invoices and other documents may leave a scope for the buyer to omit their mention in the annual statement of accounts. The auditors while auditing the annual accounts may not be able to deduct such omissions from the available documents because of non-availability of identification. In terms of the provisions of MSMED Act, 2006, the MSE supplier is defined as under:

“As per Section 2(a)(ii)(n) of the MSMED Act, 2006 the “supplier” means a micro or small enterprise, which has filed a memorandum with the authority referred to in sub-section (1) of section 8. “

So, What Now ?

It is considered advisable that the Micro and Small Enterprises should mention/ get printed on their letter heads, supply order sheets, invoices, bills and other relevant documents, the Entrepreneurs Memorandum (EM) Number {as allotted after filing of the said Memorandum, by the District Industries Centre (DIC) or competent authority, as notified by their respective State Government/ UT administration}, so that there always remains an identification of being a MSE supplier.


This may please be brought to the knowledge of all micro and small enterprises, through respective Micro and Small Enterprises Associations in your State/ under your jurisdiction or all other possible means for creating awareness and sensitisation of micro and small enterprises on this issue, under intimation to this office, so that the provisions of Section 22 and Section 23 of the MSMED Act, 2006 are implemented in letter and spirit.
