The month of festivities begin with 1st of July being the CA Day. Celebrating the 73rd Foundation Day. It is also the Doctor's Day on 1st July. We celebrated the special Day at Tea Club. This year being special celebrations are limited but then every celebration is important as it gives us a new ray of hope.
The Day is also marked as GST Day. Four years since the time GST entered our life. It has been enriching for some of our friends and colleagues. However, the glitches and challenges due to the website have been numerous. Professionals have seen nightmares complying with the rigid timelines and hiccups that the website has posed. However, it gives me immense pleasure to tell that we have made constant efforts to learn GST and our endeavors will continue. Today we can proudly say that all our members are equipped with unparallel knowledge on the subject. To smoothen the road of GST we have been making constant representations to both SGST and CGST commissioner office and also to the Council. One such representation was made on 1st July 2021 to the SGST Commissioner.
The challenges in life of CA never ends. This makes the profession dynamic and interesting. The launch of New Website of Efilling of Income Tax known as Efilling Portal 2.0 happened last month on 7th June 2021. However, like every new beginner it also jolted out. Most functions of the Portal weren't working. The shift somewhere from TCS to Infosys as service provider was not appreciated. The Hon Finance Minister had a meeting summoned with stakeholders and that was a fruitful one. Most glitches were identified. The Finance Minister and her team congratulated and thanked the CA Professionals for helping in identifying the issues and also suggesting the corrective actions for the same. Our representation on the same was also considered. We are hopeful that the change that was brought to speed up and ease out the compliance processes will soon be operative
A new notification allowing the Multi- Disciplinary Partnership by Chartered Accountants has been issued. In such testing times ,It's really important that such collaborations and Mergers do happen for growth. Also the dream as stated by PM in his speech with regards to Indian Global Firm can soon be a reality. For practising members this will allow them to ponder new avenues of practice. I am sure other bodies will come out with similar notification for their professionals too so as to allow such firms to serve in more fields. It is a welcome move. A one stop solution to all legal and tax needs will now soon be a surety. This will have a far reaching and positive impact for all Chartered Accountants
Residential Refresher Course ( RRC) has been an important event. This year we planned a Members only RRC at Udaipur at The Ananta. This is the 49th RRC, to match the number of years completed to the Foundation Day of the CAAA. The Participation was restricted to 70 members. It gives me immense pleasure to inform that the RRC registration was full within 24 hours of its launch. The short break in a way with abundant studies was definitely the need of the hour.
Covid-19 as people say will see its third variant in this month. There are if's and but's on the issue. We request all members to take utmost care and follow the guidelines of the Unlock. We wish that all Members and their Families are safe and healthy. The Vaccination Drive of the Government is on. We also contributed by having Vaccination Drive along with Ahmedabad Branch of WIRC of Institute of Chartered Accountants. We had it for 6 days and it was a huge success.. Kudos to the Care4U team for bringing such Initiatives.
Entertainment has almost eloped our lives but at CAAA I and my team always try and get the best foot forward. This year we had the first entertainment event called Lucky Blind. It was again mapped to focus on the year of CAAA Foundation. There were 28 Members who won the prize. A total of Rs. 90,000/- worth prizes were given away. The Housie was combined with live singing by Jyoti Christian and her team. I enjoyed Hosting the event.
As a President it's the Feedbacks and Suggestions which helps me and my team going. Thus request all members to share their feedbacks and suggestions and help us serve you and the Association in a better way
At the end Stay Safe# Get Vaccinated # Healthy Life
