1. CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT:-

(i) Go to incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in and click on ‘REGISTER YOURSELF’ and select the option Tax professional – Chartered Accountant. The registration of chartered accountant is one time activity and the Registration form which is opened after selecting the option chartered accountant will require your Membership Number, enrolment date as CA, Name (Surname, First Name and middle name), Date of Birth, your PAN and E-mail ID. After filling these information you have upload your digital signature and select the Continue” button.

(ii) After filling these informations you will get page two of the Registration form in which you i.e. The chartered Accountant has to fill PASSWORD DETAILS and CONTACT DETAILS.

 The password shall have 8-14 characters and must have at least one alphabet, one number and one special character. Then you need to select and answer one primary question and one secondary question.

Contact Details section asks for Landline number, Mobile number, Alternate number, E-mail ID, Alternate E-mail ID and Fax number, out of which, Mobile number and E-mail ID needs to be mandatorily filled. All the future communications will be sent to this mobile number and E-mail ID by the department.

After filling above information, press “Submit” button.

(iii) After successful submission of the Registration form:-

–            A Transaction ID will be generated.

–           An Activation link will be sent on your E-mail ID.

–           User ID will be sent to you with the activation Link E-mail ID.

(iv)On clicking activation link, CA’s account will get activated alternatively you will have to select the activation Link in your e-mail, copy it and paste it on the IT site to activate your registration. Now you have both User ID (received on E-mail) and Password (entered by you in registration form) and by using these two you will upload the required form 3CD/CB , Balance sheet and Profit and loss account.

2. ASSESSEE

(i) Assessee will log in to incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in by his own user ID and password which he uses for E-filing his ITR .User will go to My account and then select Add CA option and fill Membership Number of CA and if the CA has registered himself as CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT (as mentioned above), then his name will automatically appear and select the form name 3CB/CD or 3CA/CD and submit it then the Success message will appear with transaction ID.

(ii) E-mail will be sent to selected CA about the adding his as CA of a particular assessee.

(iii) E-mail will be sent to assessee also regarding the addition/change in Chartered Accountant.

3. CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT

(i). Download the form 3CD/CB from “other forms” from the site as mentioned above and please note here that the contents of this form 3CD are exactly the same as mentioned in Form 3CD. It has 4 pages and each page has save button so that the information can be filled and saved page wise. After filling the form you have to validate the form and if there is any mistake in filling the form , the same will be highlighted and after successful validating the form a button for generating the XML file will appear and you can save the XML file of form 3CD/CB to upload the same on the IT site.

(ii). Now login to the IT site with CA user ID and password and select the Form 3CB/CD and then upload the XML file with digital you  signature (Digital signature of the CA) .

(iii). Further with the same action you have to prepare PDF format of the Balance sheet and profit and loss account and upload the same . In this respect , in my opinion , the audited Balance sheet and profit and loss account duly signed by the CA and assessee are required to be filed hence you have to use the Scanner to scan the copy of signed Balance sheet and profit and loss account save them in PDF and then upload the same.  Mere converting the typed Balance sheet and profit and loss account by PDF converter will not serve the purpose. This is my personal opinion and there may be a difference. I have uploaded the Balance sheet and profit and loss account along with their all annexure and Notes on accounts. The maximum size of the PDF documents to be loaded is given 20MB and considering the size of PDF files it can handle a very large file also. My 8 page file consumed only 4160 KB space.

Both XML file of 3CB/CD and PDF files of the profit and loss account and Balance sheet are to be uploaded in a single action.

4. ASSESSEE

(i) Assessee will login to his account on IT site with the user ID and password which he is using at the time of filing of ITR.

(ii). Go to work list and the form 3CB/CD will appear along with the name of CA and the assessee can view the form 3CB/CD along with Balance sheet and profit and Loss account. Assessee will approve the audit report by clicking at the “approve” with his own digital signatures.

(iii). Now the work list will show that statement “Successfully E-filed.

Now the E-filing procedure of the Form 3CB/CD and profit and loss account and Balance sheet is complete and whole procedure of filling the ITR will complete after E-filling the ITR-4 (Or any other form).

What is said above is based on my practical experience of E-filing the Audit report and ITR.

  4. Atl maheshwari says:

  5. sunil kumar sahu says:

    Sir ,
    i need your help.
    if some one wrongly attach another clients balance sheet and profit and loss account with the assesses 3ca & 3cb form .

  6. Natbar Lal says:

    Whether digitally signed Balance sheet and profit and Loss a/c can be uploaded instead of physically signed…

  7. Ca. Vijay Kumar Gupta , Allahabad says:

    I am of the same opinion and follower of the learned professionals who think that there is no need to upload the physically signed scanned copy of BS, PL and its enclosures.

    I think members are thinking on this way that only audit report is digitally signed hence the BS,PL should be submitted after physically signing.

    Further I wish to draw the attention on the first Para of report in which we are mentioning that ‘Attached BS and PL’ then how anyone can say that the BS PL filled without signing physically is unsigned or not certified by the chartered accountant further more as regards to assessee is concerned he is also approving the entire upload by his digital signature.
    Kindly enlighten me on the subject to overcome from this confusion.

    Regards

  11. Anuj says:

    What about the schedules , annexures to the balance sheet & notes to accounts, are all those required to be uploaded?

  12. bharti says:

    Sir,
    I have registered a PAN as a CA and now forgot the user id and that mail which was received at the time of registration is deleted by mistake.
    Please tell me what should i do now.

  13. Ankur says:

    I think CA Sudhir Ji have righty said that only form 3CB and 3CD are digitally singed and not the pdf files uploaded after that. (the upload option for pdf files come after the button of “sign selected file” ).

    So it will be necessary to scan the signed copy of P&L, BL S.

    We surely need further clarifications on this point.

    Thank You

  19. CA ANAND says:

    Dear CA Sudhir
    Thanks.

    B/Sheet and P & L account converted in PDF format required approval of assessee to complete the uploading of 3 cb/cd by auditor. As both the Assesse and auditor using their digital signatures to complete the process,in my opinion there is no need to scan the signed statements for uploading.

But in e-filling of audit report u/s 44AB in form no. 3CB only the option of profit or loss is given but in case of nither profit nor loss what we have to do.?

  26. C P CHUGH says:

    Procedure for Uploading of Audit Reports Electronically is the result of misuse of authority by certain people from our own frratenity. Although prescribed in the right earnest, it is practically painful and prone to errors. It is well known that almost 75% of the audited returns are submitted/uploaded in the last few days of uploading. Assuming a professional of average standing uploading 50+ returns during last couple of days, one can forsee what would happen . Uploading of 3CA/CB/CD apart when we look into the volume of scanned images to be uploaded, the possibilities of uploading Audit Report of X and scanned images of Y or scanned images of X+Y cannot be ruled out. One can argue that before approving Audit report the Assessee has a choice to verify the contents of AR so uploaded. Right, but look into the realties, in case of AR of the Assessee is also CA of the Assessee, question of re-checking is almost ruled out, because of self/over confidence. In case AR is otherthan CA he is least likely to verify the contents of Audit Report for simple reason, if some thing happens wrong, he is not liable. Better would have been that uploading of 3CA/CB/CD alongwith annexures (PDF or otherwise) should be entrusted to Assessee under his digital signatures.
    The same could be made available to Registered CA on their Login and they can verify and approve whether it is the same Audit Report which he/she/they have signed, otherwise it could be rejected. Shifting of scanning to the Assessee would ensure no mixing up with other clients (assessee is uploading for himself only) whereas CAs may be uploading for number of clients. Let us strat discussing and hope some thing better emerges out of it.

    Thanks

    REPLY TO QUERIES:-
    1. FORM 3CB AND 3CD ARE DIGITALLY SIGNED AND BALANCE SHEET AND PROFIT AND LOSS ACCOUNT ARE UPLOADED AFTER THAT IN PDF FORMAT AND NOT DIGITALLY SIGNED. PLEASE CHECK THE SAME IN THE WORKLIST OF THE ASSESSEE HENCE BOTH BALANCE SHEET AND PROFIT AND LOSS ACCOUNT SHOULD BE FILED DULY SIGNED BY THE ASSESSSEE AND CA (SCANNED COPY IN PDF FORMAT)
    2. YES IT IS NOT ONLY DIFFICULT BUT TIME CONSUMING PROCESS AND CERTAINLY WILL INCREASE THE WORKLOAD OF CA. 
    3. IF YOU ARE PRESSING THE SAVE BUTTON THEN THE FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY SAVED AT THE DESTINATION WHERE IT IS AT PRESENT EXISTED.  FURTHER AFTER VALIDATING THE FILE YOU CAN GENERATE THE XML FILE AND SAVE IT (XML) WHERE YOU WANT TO SAVE.
    4.YES AUDITOR AND THE RETURN FILING PERSON CAN BE TWO BUT THE CA IS ALSO THE AR OF THE ASSES SEE TO FILE THE RETURN THEN THE PROCESS WILL TAKE LESS TIME  .

  28. CA.Vijay Mohan says:

    Thank sir,
    Its very informative,
    I have the same doubt as CA.Raviprakash.
    When we digitally sign the 3CB, 3CD, P&L and Balance sheet, the purpose of signing gets solve according to Information Technology Act, 2000.
    So in my opinion the physical sign of the document and again scanning it, will just my our works look more complicated .
    Kindly someone give some clarification on this..

    Thank you in advance

    I think the process is very difficult and the workload is high to CA. I have already registered as professional but so far i haven’t upload any forms

  38. CA. Raviprakash says:

    Dear CA. Sudhir, 
    Informative and thanks
    Since the uploaded BS and PL a/c with annexures is to be digitally signed by CA, in my opinion there is no need to scan the signed statements for uploading.
