Hyderabad, February 16, 2024….The Federation of Telangana Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FTCCI) organizing a  Panel Discussion on “Implications & Remedies of Delayed Payments to MSMEs” on  Friday at FTCCI Surana Auditorium, Federation House, Red Hills, Hyderabad.


Giving his opening remarks, Chief Guest Meela Jayadev, President of FTCCI said MSME entities constitute a large segment of the Indian economy and most business organizations deal with MSME entities throughout the year. To promote timely payments to Micro and Small Enterprises, the Government inserted a new provision clause (h) of Section 43B of the Income Tax Act with effect from 01st April 2023 vide Finance Act, 2023. Clause (h) of Sec. 43B mandates that any sum payable to a registered MSME be a micro or a small enterprise before the due date as per Sec. 15 of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act, 2006.


There is big confusion among Trade and Industry regarding what is clause (h) of Section 43B of the Income Tax Act & and how to check its applicability, what to do in case of default, its consequences, how to treat it in Accounting, Statutory norms etc.  To clear all these doubts and to provide clarification, FTCCI organised the Panel Discussion, Meela Jayadev added
