Benefits of a Producer Company Registration

Below are the benefits of registering a Producer Company.

Limited Liability:

The liability of the members of the Company is limited. The Directors or Shareholders are not personally liable for the debts of the Company. For example, when Company is in default of repayment of debt or loan, there is a protection to the personal assets of the Directors or Shareholders. They can recover the loan amount only by selling the assets of the Company.

Small Farmers Agribusiness Consortium (SFAC):

SFAC operates a Credit Guarantee Fund to mitigate credit risks of financial institutions which lend to the Farmers Producer Companies without collateral. This helps the FPCs to access credit from mainstream financial institutions for establishing and operating businesses.

SFAC provides matching equity grant up to Rs. 10 lakh to the FPCs to enhance borrowing power, and thus enables the entities to access bank finance.

NABARD Support:

NABARD set up 50 crore Producer Organisation Develop Fund (PODF) for the development of the Producer Companies in India. This fund will support the producer companies by providing credit support, improving marketing capacity and infrastructure facilities in the floowing ways:

NABARD also provides technical, managerial and financial support for hand-holding, capacity building and market intervention efforts of the Producer Companies. Such support is available in the form of grant, loans, or a combination of the two based on the need of the situation, and is available only to those Producer Organisations which avail credit from NABARD. Capacity building support will not be given in isolation in general. It would essentially be a part of the overall project having loan component. Grant, if any, will be maximum 20% of the loan amount. Capacity building should broadly cover any activity relating to functioning of a producer organization.

Government of India Support:

Government of India provides budgetary support to Small Farmers Agribusiness Consortium (SFAC) for its Equity Grant and Credit Guarantee Fund Scheme for the Farmer Producer Company. For creation of storage and other agricultural marketing infrastructure under the Integrated Scheme for Agricultural Marketing (Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India), Farmer Producer Companies are eligible to get higher subsidies. Ministry of Rural Development also operates schemes through which support for some activities can be obtained by the Farmer Producer Companies. Training institutions supported by the Ministry or Rural Development, Government of India also impart skill and capacity building training which can be made use of by the Producer Companiesfor its members.

Management Support:

Indian farmers know how to produce the primary agricultural produce but they fail in how to market it. In producer company, the farmer members may appoint experienced personnel in marketing as Directors and market their products at higher rates thereby they get more revenue. So each member will get benefited by having experienced marketing support personnel.

Income Tax Benefits:

The Income Tax Act, 1961, specifically exempts tax on agricultural income under Section 10(1). However, the exemption for such agricultural income shall sometimes vary depending upon the kind of agricultural activity carried on. It is to be noted that though the IT Act does not per-se give any special benefits or exemptions to Producer Companies as such, but depending upon the kind of agricultural activity it carries on, certain tax benefits can be availed.

Dividend tax at the applicable rates is required to be paid by the Company at the time of patronage bonus, limited return distribution and the same will be tax free in the hands of the members. Bonus shares will not attract any tax in the hands of the members at the time of allotment, however at the time of sale or redemption necessary provision of capital gain tax shall apply.
