Delayed Payment Webinar Oct 2022 3
Webinar on “Delayed Payments to MSMEs - Challenges and Solutions” 2

UDYAMITA HELPLINE, with a view to educate MSMEs on a large scale and to provide effective measures to their problems, is organizing a Webinar on “Delayed Payments to MSMEs – Challenges and Solutions” on October 31st, 2022

Delayed payment is the biggest problem being faced by MSMEs. In this webinar, we will try to find out various options to this problem. Though MSEs are entitled to the interest @ 3 times of bank rate for the delayed period if the payment is not made within 45 days to them. However, still they are not able to recover even the principal amount in many cases.

MSMEs are struggling for their payments from Government and private companies in many cases. Though there is no full proof solution for this problem, this webinar will try to find some alternate solutions.

In order to resolve this issue and to promote entrepreneurship and development of MSMEs, the Ministry of MSME established the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Act (‘MSMED Act’) in 2006 wherein one of the salient features was section 15 which mandates the buyer to make payment of the goods bought or services taken within a stipulated time frame, not exceeding 45 days. Further, Section 16 stipulates charging of interest, compounded on a monthly basis, at three times the bank rate on default till the date of actual payment.

The agenda of this webinar is to educate MSMEs on the following:

  • Issues of Delayed Payments to MSMEs, 
  • How contracts help in case of future default
  • How to do proper documentation of the opposite party.
  • Guidelines for delayed payment of dues to the MSME borrowers
  • Rights and Benefits of the MSME Industry under MSMED Act.
  • Steps to be taken in case of filing an application before MSEFC for non-payment of the dues by the buyer.
  • Ways to protect your case for future litigation
  • Recoveries under other Acts.
  • Where to approach in case of default: MSMED Act or other tribunals / Courts?
  • Role of TReDS in Timely Payments to MSMEs
  • Question and Answer Session.

This webinar is expected to last for about 1.5 hours and will be addressed by an eminent speaker Adv. Kumar Prateek, Corporate Commercial Lawyer & Recovery Expert (MSME). He has substantial amount of experience in Banking, Finance, Insolvency & Restructuring, MSME, Litigation, Arbitration, Food Safety and Standards, Intellectual Property, Competition Laws, RERA, Contracts, Securities, etc. & Sh. Gopinath Rao, IEDS, Dy. Director MSME DI from Karnataka.

The Webinar shall be moderated by Ms. Richa Bhardwaj, Advisor at Udyamita Helpline.
