India Business

In a recent amendment to Income-Tax Rules, delayed payments to MSEs will incur payment of interest at 18 % per annum compounded annually; in addition it will entail liability to pay income-tax on such interest.

“Delayed payments to MSEs will not only entail payment of interest to the affected MSEs at 18% p.a. compounded monthly (effective rate 19.56%) but will also entail liability to pay income-tax (at as much as 33.99% presently) on such interest, which is inadmissible as expenditure deductible from taxable income,” reads a notification released by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India. 

The decision would assuage millions of small and medium enterprises who have been facing payment default to their services.
