Beloved Members,

I wish to start my communique by placing on record my deepest gratefulness for your extraordinary support, guidance and blessings as we complete 6 months of the term 2021-22. The journey so far has truly been a boundless learning and most importantly a really satisfying one. I hope and pray that I meet your expectations or at least reach half the benchmark set by my honorable forerunners. I humbly request for your continued support, feedback and guidance so as to work better for our fraternity.

The recent notification regarding Multi-Disciplinary Firms on 8th July, 2021 could be a game changer to the profession as the reach, visibility and opportunity of our vocation widens multifold as we partner with the right and permitted experts. This I am sure would help the members to serve in a wider scope beyond the traditional audit and tax practice. I feel it is a very welcome move by our Institute. 

July month was a crazy run for us at the committee with loads of technical and non-technical activities. The CA Day celebrations in the virtual presence of Padmashri Sri. M.A Yusuff Ali was very thrilling along with the games and cultural activities by members and family. The CA month began with some noble CSR interventions for the poor and needy by distributing food kits, distributing mobile tablets to the needy children, etc., by the branch. The 50 mobile phones were distributed in the presence of four MLAs in Ernakulam District. On the technical front, we could also successfully complete another 25 hours of CPE in July with great participation for each one of the seminars.

August is all set for a refresher course on Corporate Laws and also the plans are on for the second edition of the Navarathna Conference. There are also several brand building activities in plan for the month such as financial literacy programmes, career counseling sessions, faculty development workshops for college teachers, etc., apart from Independence Day and Onam celebrations.  

I am sure the tax audit season is keeping you busy and hectic but I wish to remind you to stay safe from the pandemic as the covid cases are heaving in the State especially in Ernakulam District. We would be arranging the second dose of vaccines for the ones who took in May. We shall soon be sending out the details. Safety and health have remained our priority. 

As we celebrate our 75th Independence Day, it is also a reminder to our responsibility towards this Nation in our capacity as Chartered Accountants and thereby upholding the morals and integrity of our profession and most importantly of this Nation. These challenging times would pass and the glory of our nation and profession would continue to surge ahead and sail high. Before I conclude, let me take this opportunity to wish my fellow members and family a very happy and prosperous Onam. May the bright colors of Pookalam and sweetness of the lovely Payasam fill your life and remain forever. May all your dreams and efforts be accomplished.

Yours truly,

CA. Renjith R. Warrier
Chairman
