Respected Professional Colleagues,

I am sure many of us are running hectic this month with the bank audits. Nonetheless we should be reminded that the amendments brought in on revised reporting requirements mandates utmost attention and seriousness even on the smallest of accounts. I am sure that you are all aware of the developments in registration procedures under Income Tax for the registration of Charitable and Religious Organizations and now again with regard to Companies Act as well.

The branch is giving in the best efforts to bring you the best of the technical sessions and experts to address us on the above-mentioned developments. We are deeply grateful to see the very positive response for all our programmes for the month of March and this gives us the extra urge to do and serve you more.

Like in March, we shall balance between both physical and digital sessions and we assure you at least 30 hours of CPE. Soon after the conclusion of the bank audit season, we intend to initiate certain non-technical activities for our members such as a Music club, a Cycling and Walking club, etc. I seek your wholehearted support for the same as well. We are also in the process of discussion with the Worshipful Mayor of Cochin Corporation, Adv M. Anilkumar to bring in a complete transformation and involvement in the internal control procedure and CSR Structure for the Corporation. The MOU is positively expected to be exchanged this month. This association could be the first of its kind in the entire state. 

The technical sessions planned for the month of April is on Registration of Charitable Trusts, Companies Act, Global & Entrepreneurship Avenues for CAs, Code of ethics, Technology, etc. The proposed event plan for the month shall be mailed to you. I also take the good opportunity to inform you of the extension in date for ARS Registration to 15th of April, 2021 and I request you to please make use of the same if not already done. The ARS registration count has touched close to 450 already and we are thankful to you for that.  We are also initiating a monthly compliance calendar/ reminder from this edition onwards. I am deeply thankful and indebted to CA. Joseph Thomas, Past Chairman of the branch for being instrumental in bringing these innovative yet productive inclusions in the e-Newsletter. 

I once again seek all your good wishes and guidance for a successful conduct of the branch in my capacity as your Chairman. Please give me your valuable suggestions so that I can serve you and the branch in the most befitting manner.

Festive month of April is widely celebrated by Malayalees for Easter and Vishu. As you know, both the celebrations truly depict resurrection and new beginnings. Let me wholeheartedly wish you a very happy and prosperous Vishu and belated yet a very happy Easter. Let this be a very blessed Malayalam year for all of us. Stay safe and Healthy!

 

Yours faithfully 

CA. Renjith R.Warrier
