The Ministry of MSME issues Udyog Aadhaar (also known as Aadhaar for Business), a 12-digit government identifying number to small and medium-sized firms that desire to register as MSME.

Unlike other commercial entities, a sole proprietorship does not have a formal acknowledgement of its existence. For solo owners without official government recognition, Udyog Aadhaar is highly recommended, since it allows a lone proprietor to receive a unique identity and official registration with the Government of India, which validates the existence of his business.
