Procedure for calculation & fixation of Monetary Limits of Micro & Small Enterprises.
A. Monetary limit of the company is fixed on the basis of the unit's net sales turnover during the last three years reflected in the Audited Balance Sheets.
Net Sales = Total sales – All Duties, Taxes, returns etc
Details of the net sales of the company during last three years:-
2007-08 – Rs. 50 Lacs
2008-09 – Rs. 75 Lacs
2009-10 – Rs. 80 Lacs
Therefore, Monetary Limit = Rs. (50+75+80)/3 X 50%
= Rs. 34.26 Lac.
Say = Rs. 34 Lac.
In case the Company/Partnership concern/Proprietorship unit is in loss for one year out of past three years, their monetary limit will be fixed at 40% of their average net sales turnover.
Similarly, when the Micro & Small Enterprise is in loss for two years out of the past three years, the monetary limit will be accordingly fixed at 30% of their average net sales turnover of the past three years.
In the event of Micro & Small Enterprise being in loss throughout past three years, the monetary limit of the Unit will be fixed at 20% of the average net sales turnover of the Unit during the past three years In cases of initial registration where the firm has been in existence for less than 3 years MTL may be fixed at 50% of the average net sales value of the last year for which audited accounts are available.
B. Where the turnover of the Enterprise has steadily increased over the last three years and the unit is in profit continuously, the Monetary Limit may be fixed at 50% of net sales turnover achieved in the last year.
For Example : If during the last three years 2007-08 , 2008-09 and 2009-10 the turnover had grown steadily and was highest in 2009-10, in this scenario the Monetary Limit should be fixed by taking the basis of highest net sales / turnover achieved in the year 2009-10. The other terms and conditions will remain unchanged.
