Chartered Accountants Association, Surat

Ref: CAAS/Representations/2017-18/02, Date: 15/10/2017

To,
The Finance Minister,
Ministry of Finance, Government of India, 134, North Block,
New Delhi – 110001

Respected Sir,

Subject: Re: Extension of time Limit for filing IT Return (44AB Audit Cases) and Work related issues in GST

As you are well aware of our Organisation – Chartered Accountants Association, Surat (CAAS), we would cut-short to our representation, which requires an utmost and urgent attention. As a part of its objectives, Chartered Accountant’s Association, Surat, a non-profit organization, works for the betterment of Chartered Accountancy profession, more specifically with respect to softer issues like better working conditions and standards for members of Chartered Accountancy profession, through representation like this. The present representation concerns around the deteriorated working conditions and lowering of work quality standards due to haste by the government in implementing various laws, rules and procedures.

Our Representation:

1. Due to the hasty implementation of GST, it has jeopardized the routine work of tax audit as well as ITR filing. On one side CAs juggling with GST and Tax Audit, find it extremely difficult work, while on the other side, time devoted by the tax payers in resolving audit is also quite low, since all tax payers are busy in complying with the GST procedures. Tax Audits were to be completed by 30th September 2017, however due to GST, due date was extended by 1 month. This shows that your ministry is wellaware of the implications in dealing with a failed outsourced network – the GSTN. Also, regarding the various returns to be filed under GST laws, your department had advertised so much simplicity, coupled with the so-called push button softwares and GSP Services with API capabilities, that everyone thought, GST compliance would be simple and easy to comply. But that turned out to be a myth.

Year wise ITR filing Trends

However, a looking at the figures of return filing by the Income Tax Assessees upto 30th September 2017, it can be inferred that approx 75% of Corporate Assessees and 50% of other auditable entities u/s 44AB are yet to file their Income Tax Returns and Audit Report, which they had been doing at the close of due dates every year.

Status of ITR Filing

However, the overall wastage of public time due to GST, in terms of total man-hours, man-week or man-month, could be seen from the above chart. In other words, due to the superfast GST, the train of Income Tax compliance is late by 2 month, out of which one month would be required to fulfil GST compliances, whereas the other for IT Audit. Change related to quarterly filing for entities with turnover less than Rs.1.50 Crores was although declared, but notified in mid October i.e. 13th October 2017, which is of literally no relief during the heavy audit compliance period of October 2017. Hence, unless additional time would not be granted to comply with Audit and IT Procedures, the assessee would have to suffer from penalty u/s 271B and interest u/s 234A of IT Act. Besides, due to hasty verification of financial information, there is an inherent risk in audit, that material mis-statement may go undetected, which would be detrimental to the interests of the revenue and the overall purpose of tax audits. Hence, for quality work we mandate sufficient time and extension of due date as per para 6 below.

2. Earlier in July – August 2017, due to heavy floods, tax payers from various parts of the country including Gujarat could not either start their audit work or even start their accounting work. Some of them had even lost their basic accounting records. In such situation, it is extremely tough for anyone to get their accounts audited. Hence, we require a due date extension for filing returns. Should you require to cross check, here is the source of information:

a. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Gujarat_flood

b. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Northeast_India_floods

c. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_West_Bengal_floods

d. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Mumbai_flood

Flood in India

3. India is Known to be a country or religions. Tax Payers, Tax practitioners ana Chartered Accountants, also being Social animals, belong to various ethnic groups and follow various faiths and beliefs. During the month of October, there are numerous weekly festivals like Muharram, Durga Pooja (West Bangal), Diwali, etc. Extension granted by CBDT vide notification No.F.No.225/270/2017/ITA-11 dt.31/08/2017, has resulted into overtime working by tax practitioners and Chartered Accountants during the festive season and possibly even on holidays. This already hurting religious feelings of a Large number of tax payers as well as tax practitioners (including CAs). It may be noted, that even Advocates having courtroom practice, enjoy summer and winter vacations. Thus, for a balanced, social and family life of Chartered Accountants, we hereby raise our concern over the deteriorating working conditions and earning standards of practitioners, and also demand an extension of time Limit as per Para 6 below, so as not to spoil festive weeks of practitioners during Diwali.

4. As a matter of fact to be brought to your notice, during the last few years, tax practitioners and especially Chartered Accountants, have been toiling too hard to help you achieve your fiscal targets. As can be seen from the below chart, the proportion of return filed after office hours is increasing alarmingly

Particulars 2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 % Increase
% of Returns Filed Outside Office Hours 53.58% 50.78% 54.56% 7.44

**Source: www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in

Thus, if any tax practitioner’s office has a shift is of 8 hours, which as per above information forms less than 50% of total actual working hours, then approx 100% of time is overtime. Practitioners toil late night, to provide quality of work as per committed norms of ICAI, making their working shift of above 16 hours. And if time to eat, pray and love is deducted, the remaining time is an inhumane figure to get a sound sleep. And in return, they get meager remunerative amount. These calculations are based on a normal lot of 60 audit assesses to 1 CA.

CA Sucide Due to Work Pressure5. It is an unwritten and unacknowledged fact, that CAs although not legally bound to deliver any particular service, but as rightly termed by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, as Rishimuni, who strive for perfection and professionally deliver work to its results. However, considering the extreme complexities of existing laws, when read between the lines, and which have to be complied either as auditor or consultant, and work has to be taken from dumb machines, which seldom deliver service on time, the CAs have to take on the heat. One such aspiring Chartered Accountant CA Shri Tejas Manharlal Desai (Aged 42) years had gone CA Tejas Desai Sucide News in Gujratiinto depression and later committed suicide on 13th October 2017, due to excessive GST compliance work. However, those who are still alive are dying at a slow pace within their offices. Due to such excessive work pressure and continuous sitting, members of our fraternity have become vulnerable to fatal diseases like hypertriglyceridemia, hyperlipdemia, hyper-tension, hemorrhoids, blood pressure, high sugar, Insomnia, mood swings and many more. All these are unfortunate methods of earning as well as dying. Hence, we need a sitting with you along with the officers of the Finance Ministry, with regard to simplification of compliance work. Please provide your suitable time at the earliest.

6. Sir, do you think, the tax professionals and CAs are robots, switching and routing their time and energy in multitasking to achieve your goals, completing Tax Audit on one hand as well as GST compliance on the other, amidst vicious cycles of GST late filing fees of Rs.200 per day, which were promised to be waived, by you through a press release announcing the recommendations of 22nd GST Council meeting, but the promise was never notified in writing till date. This also shows, that your own men don’t follow your orders. Is the situation of Government so pitiable, that it has to earn money out of self-created problems and a failed network. The innocent tax payers, relying upon your press release promise, have resorted to quarrel and demeaning behavior with their Chartered Accountants due to upfront collection of this hidden late fees by GSTN, without which the tax payers are not allowed to file GST returns. Hence, we require an immediate stoppage of bottlenecks created by GSTN in the form of Last minute demand of Late filing fees. Since, by the time it is paid, another late fee are charged and levied. Besides, we demand a complete refund of the erroneously charged Late fees to the Electronic Cash Ledger of respective tax payers.

7. Thus, during this historic year of paradigm change in taxation, although, which was hastily implemented along with other factors as enlisted above, we demand an extension of time limit for the following:

a. Income Tax Return Filing due date, which was extended till 31st October 2017, be further extended till 31st December 2017 to reduce/spreading over the work

b. TDS Return Filing due date, which is 31st October, be further extended till 30th November 2017.

We hope, our representation would have appraised you in light of various hardships faced by the stakeholders, and are also hopeful, that you would do justice to our grievances.

Thanks & Regards,

    Day by day all the statutory compliance are being shifted from government to Dealers / Assessees to Chartered Accountants / Tax Consultants, making the life of the service providers ( CA’s and Tax Consultants) a restless. We professionals are really working hard, under pressure and stress. Government should understand it is humanly not possible to comply so many mandates at a time. October month is heavely scheduled with GST returns, Income Tax audits and returns, TDS returns, ESI and EPF returns. During October it is a totally 10 holidays ( 5 sundays, 3 Diwali Festival, 2nd Gandhi Jayanthi, 14 & 28th Bank Holiday) In the nutshell, we have leftout with 20 working days to complete so many !!!!!!. Apart from this, there was a heavy rain almost 7-8 days during October 2017 throughout the country. so finally, we have been left with 13 working days to complete the task.

  48. RAJAN KUMAR says:

  58. shailesh N kelkar says:

    Matter of letter is highly appreciated, but, writing to government or minister is beating around bush, as i am doubtful, whether , either of these , have ever filed reports/returns themselves.instead of delivering meaningless and aimless speeches?

    Also , alternatively CAs should not cry about work load for reason, i find hardly any CA doing justice to work, i.e. quality work. Ca community should not forget , with privileges comes great responsibilities also. Here responsibility mean, when government has extended date will in advance, what is sense in crying. Is this professional approach towards problem, when matter is clarified in advance.

  59. Sanjeevkumar Kabra says:

    CBDT and Finance Ministry seems to have their own merrily way as despite request from Taxpayer all around the country they have not bothered to accept their request for extension of due date of Income Tax Returns which are falling due on 31st October 2017 to 30th November 2017. To add insult to injury CBDT has further changes its schema for Form 3CD on 26th October 2017 i.e. just five day before the last day of filing the Income Tax return. The Change is 3rd Change since release of Schema on 1st April 2017. So CBDT / Government can do Last Minute Schema Changes, Keep its website closed for updates/Maintenance, Increase as much reporting as it want in the name of transparency and at the same time they will claim ease in doing business. In view of such changes due date of furnishing Audit Report Shall be considered by CBDT and Hon FM

  60. Sanjeevkumar Kabra says:

    There are a number of requests for extension of due date for filing IT returns and tax audit reports made, the Hon FM/PM either to consider or reply that the reques is not considerable. They shall answer at least there’s no reason for extension of due date for filing tax audit reports and IT returns.

  61. Anand Kumar says:

    Tax audit date must be extended due to heavy load of GST Work. Govt. Should immediately issue notification regarding date extension today if the extension given on monday then what will be use of this. So please give extension today to help all professionals and businessmen.

    _________________________________________
    Date: 16/10/2017
    To
    Respected All,
    We regret to inform you that, Sales Tax Bar Association, Rohtak have decided in its meeting held on dated 16/10/2017; members of the bar strongly condemn the procedure laid down by the GST Council for filing of GST returns. Government policy to ease doing business ends with the latest procedure of filing of returns.
    As per present modules number of GST return are so high one return per week. It is not possible for small dealer, accountant, and professionals to file separate return for sale, purchase and tax deposited. No one can follow this highly time consuming schedule until and unless dealer has full time staff. Hence member of the association decided to go on strike with this demand that return should be quarterly (sales /purchase/tax in one return).
    We feel sorry to all our clients for this inconvenience to them on account of action taken by the association. But there was no other option left for us, as dealers who are mainly sufferer of this unpractical law are not raising their voice and representation to the Government for change of procedure to file the return and harsh penalty levied. We professional are simple human being not able to file return every week which is unpractical decision of the government. This fight is for justice for all, for nation for business community, for professionals.
    Regards
    (MEMBERS SALES TAX BAR ASSOCIATION, ROHTAK)

  75. G S Krishnan says:

    This Govt. Won’t respect the professional and dependent on senseless bureaucrats.Good economist to be appointed as FM who listens to the difficulties of small Traders to big companies, professional and all interest groups.

  76. Vincent Andrews says:

    But its in dilemma sir, I heard from one of the central council member that CBDT is not agreeing with extension, as it affects their revenue cycle, but ICAI putting lot of efforts to make it upto FM and government may come with positive result keeping Gujarat elections. Hope for the best

  77. Aftab Alam Khan says:

    Just talked to person incharge of grievances at PMO office with reference to a separate grievance filed by CAAS, with PMO on 17th October 2017. Initially he was surprised as what grievance does a CA Association would have.😂

    He was convinced by the issue and has forwarded request to both CBDT and CBEC for expeditious clearance of grievance.

    When they are not replying to their own baby in time how
    Other state body will get the reply. I think the Govt.is not
    serious about the mental situation of the people
    Involved in this noble profession. Its time to find out some concret solution on this issue.

    we also lot of thank to Chartered Accountants Association- Surat , has rightly claim for the extension of due date of Tax audit returns filing. All the Points Raised are absolutely correct and valid .
    Ministries are incapable to realize the complicated
    issues in relation of Book Keeping , audit etc.

  104. kiritbhai says:

    here is no doubt that the work load of accountants has increased tremendously. First demonetization, then GST. Two major new financial reforms in a span of 7-8 months have added so much that accountants and managements are truly confused as to which one to give priority: GST or Audit and ITR filing/ROC filing/calculation and filing of refund claim for excise component of stock as on 30-6-17. If some relief in filing time is not given, there will be more defaulters than compilers.

    Thanks to Chartered Accountants Association,Surat
    who have raised voice for extending due date of Tax Audit.It is very Difficult to handle Tax Audit work and GST work simultaneously.
    Hope so Government will listen ours views.

  105. NISARG JOSHI says:

  123. vandita says:

    what is the status of the descision of changing the financial year from march to december?.
    if they do that, then at least festivals, floods and related illnesses of both men and machines will not create major issues.

  124. vandita says:

    voices our sentiments exactly. very well drafted.
    The CA fraternity can understand the frustration that lead to the death of a CA……., but dont have too many hopes from the government, who thinks that we only keep on complaining and asking for extension.
    so many farmers died… kya hua?

    • sathyamangala narasimhaswamy sridhar says:

      thanks for your compliments, Vandita. But ultimately all our concerns must be addressed immediately.

  125. sathyamangala narasimhaswamy sridhar says:

    Tax Consultant,
    The issue of the need for extention is not limited to few states. In this particular year, almost all parts of the country of affected by natural calamities in one form or the other, though the intensity may vary. Then the Ghost of GST, ICTC etc. have added further fuel. In the field of GST one has lost count of the number of notifications and extentions. There is a big chaos among the audit community and the general public.In spite of this, majority of the masses are striving hard to keep up with all the compliances. The technical problems like survor down etc. apart, it is to be noticed that no one is not yet frustrated, because everyone is looking for light at the end of the tunnel. The only fact of almost every statute being changed/amended at one stretch has been the root cause. Quality and honest compliance and human health should take more priority in this year of a sort revolutionary time.

    Hence, request and need for extention is tenable. The powers that be, should act voluntarily before the positive response of the public towards historic shift-overs gets completely diluted.

  126. Vijay Rathod says:

    Request for extension of TAR & ITR is given by all states of CA Association which shows the Unity & seriousness of workload & responsibility given to all CA feternity. It is surprised that on diwali festival Govt. not announced the extension of GST-3B date.Tax audit date must be extended due to heavy load of GST compliances. Govt. Should immediately issue notification regarding date extension.

  127. Prafull Chawda says:

    Yes, Govt must give the extention for filing of Tax Audit Report and Filing of Income Tax Return till 30.11.2017

  128. Govind Lohia says:

    Its really important for us.. The work load is so huge that we could not even enjoy our festivals.. Even then the work is not going to get done before due date.. Still 40% of our work is still pending resulting in compromising the audit quality.

  129. Chirag says:

    tax audit limit has to extend soon as possible

  133. rohit says:

    even representation has been mail to all ca and tax consultant association are they not responding?

  134. SURENRDA JAISWAL says:

    GST Return filling due dates are required to be increased permanently and Tax audit date must be extended due to heavy load of GST & Income and TDS compliances and Diwali festival. Being a sensitive Govt. , Should immediately issue notification regarding date extension. Govt. must understand the level of stress and difficulties faced by the people of our country.

  135. BABU- bangalore says:

    Why all other states CA ASSOCIATIONS are not submitting their request for extention of time, If not done, How the GOVERNMENT WILL BOTHER? They think that this demand is from only few states, and others are comfortable.. is it not so ? ..

  136. Pankaj Agarwala says:

    Good representation made before the ministry!. Hope they understand the genuinity of the problems being faced by CA fraternity and business people for the kind of amendments recently made by the govt. People are forced to pay fine even if the delay is caused because of technical glitches in GSTN whicn is never a fault of bonafide taxpayers. Will the govt. ever think of compensating the business houses for the problems being faced by them due to unthoughtful implementation of GST and ineffective GST portal?

  143. CA Hardik Kakadiya says:

    AUDITOR SEKAR your observation is practical, but lets hope that does not happen.

    BABU we mailed our representation to all the “To and CC” concerned parties, besides, we also submitted a PDF submission on pmindia.gov.in which is lodged in cpgrams, so by this time he may have got the message.

    SUNIL KUMAR and Radheshyam, instead of strike, lets not submit the Audits, let the genuine or not so genuine late clients feel the heat, they should also represent through their respective trade associations. Finally Audit and GST are both babies of the Trade & Industry. We are merely “Yashoda Ma”.

    Request you all to please share this content further and again make it viral. I urge, other associations too join us.

    DON’T WORRY Sir,
    As usual our Government will extend the Date of filing of return up to 6th, November. (one week) saying : “Upon many representations received from auditors and in the interest of public government is extending the due date up to 6th of November”. (Since 4th, and 5th becomes a Holiday, Nobody will cooperate in the office), On 6th November INCOME TAX website will not work/ or very slow. Inspite of that we will file the returns by 12th hour.
    On 7th November Our Hon’ble FINANCE MINISTER will anounce “with the co-operation of OUR BUSINESSMAN” Government received all the tax audit returns.
    This is our fate, don’t worry. HAPPY FILING, HAPPY PENALTY,
    MODI ki Jindabad.

    It is simply rigidness of the Government nothing else. if Government extend the date for another a month they will loose nothing.

  156. Radheyraman Dwivedi says:

    We need the extension any how majority of Tax Audits are pending due to Gst Implementation issues we are facing lots of problem

    • Radheshyam says:

      Why should we always beg before Government for extension of due dates, they are so rigid and doesnt understand our fillings at all. Due dates have already spoiled our social, festival life. please its my appeal go for strike and show power of our community to Government

  157. B.DURAIRAJ says:

    First the filing of GST returns should by away from any difficulties.It should have the provision of alteration after submission but before filing.The cash ledger must be common.So that any one paid wrongly in other area will not create any problem.If it is a common cash ledger it could be used for any one which need the payment.And then there should not be any fine or late fee up to March 2018 or until the problems solved.Daily we have to work for GST…GST…GST.It can be avoided only the Govt and Tax officials put their sincere effort to avoid this kind of problems.

  158. BABU says:

    Good petition but its high time for us as we want to provide all service i.e Tax audit, GST returns, Company audit, etc under one roof with limited staff but not focus on in specialized services.

    We should encourage new CA fraternity

  170. Sunder Seshan says:

    Right from the day a CA entered this profession a majority CAs never enjoyed Diwali because of Nov exam tension and after qualifying another tension of meeting the various deadlines like tax audits, scrutiny assessments, Roc matters and now added burden of hasty implementation of GST law and rules which kept changing from day one. There can never be a happy Diwali in the horoscope of CA. So never wish a CA a Happy diwali

  171. Usman Ali Khan says:

    I highly appreciate the timely action taken by Surat CA association which has served as voice of many voiceless tax professionals. I wish that all CA associations should go to the High Court of the respective state if the CBDT does not give extension by 20.10.2017 as professionals are spending sleepless nights and tensions are rising high day by day, earlier declaration of extension shall relieve the tension which ultimately help for better compliance.

  172. CA.Prabhakar says:

    Yesterday Rajasthan assn has made a request . Today Surat assn . Pl come out all assns. throught India and raise your voices . Time for raising requests is over now only we have to raise our voices. Losing one young CA because of this stupendous work making the blood boiling. Within
    Oct 20th GSTR 3B has to be filed and the challans have to be paid and oct 31 July GSTR 2 has to be filed and where is the time to attend the Tax audits. So even if the time is extended on 30th Oct 12 AM it is of no use. By that time we are not prepared to lose some more colleagues. So if the time is not extended immediately up to 31st Dec., no more requests only choice is to shut down computers all over India. The Ex FM was so inhuman and making the lives of professionals miserable in these seasons. Ultimately the recent raids on his sons empire shows that by looting the public wealth and professions efforts and hard work he has invested lakhs of crores in overseas countries. whose money it is. It is all from taxes paid out of hard earned money. In such a situation why one should struggle and make these fellows happy.

    The only medicine and booster for the professionals who became sick because of working day and night is extension of time for all compliance including the ROC up to 31st Dec.

    So this is humble, sincere and serious request as well as demand to all those authorities to consider this as as extraordinary situation and co operate with all the players involved in this to make a GST a big success. If the professionals are good the clients are good , if the clients are good the business is good and if the business is good the govt will get the taxes good and after that it is left to the govt how to make use of the taxes to the fullest benefit of the country and should see that it reaches every nook and corner of the country.

  173. Chandresh Davey says:

    Yes, extension is required, because of GST we have lot of work is incressed to maintain account, and to understand the producer.

    Yes due to various due dated like TDS, GST 3B, GSTR -2, Tans-1 and all other Works Like EPF and ESI we are so puzzled and overloaded that we can not provide the quality that our government expects from us. We are also sacrificing our festival times and family time for these unexpected deadlines.

  178. CA ANIL TALREJA says:

    and further make request you to make presentation for easy compliance of gst and aviodness of penality atleast first 3-4 month

  179. CA Suman Reddy says:

    Good Job

  180. KETAN says:

    This effort and request is genuine..,previous year same time , I was free of mind after finalising and filing complete files in hand.. all compliances were filed and relaxed.. But this year not even started auditing works related to 44AB cases, too much busy and spending maximum time in working for GST only since july 17. Let CBDT understand this practical difficulty and tension.. and I request to extend the date of filing .

  181. SIVARAMAN VISWANATHAN says:

    Why, even company law returns filing date of 30th Oct also needs to be extended till nov due very same reason. Alternatively the filing fee should not be increased by additional fee should not be charged till 31st dec 2017.

  183. BABU says:

    This effort and request is genuine..,previous year same time , I was free of mind after finalising and filing complete files in hand.. all compliances were filed and relaxed.. But this year not even started auditing works related to 44AB cases, too much busy and spending maximum time in working for GST only since july 17. Let CBDT understand this practical difficulty and tension.. and I request to extend the date of filing .

  184. R. Ramamurthy says:

    Time for filing return and reports needs to be extended up to 30-11-2017 is a genuine request and needs to be considered. Bangalore and other cities in Karnataka have sunk in rain. Many data information has gone to fluctuation of power supply. Accountants who prepare accounts for various dealers have lost data and finding it difficult to gather materials and re-enter. Holidays have caused another problem. Merger of banks have made the collection of data further difficult.Dealers are still busy with understanding GST provisions. Professionals cannot go collect data for dealers and have to depend on the dealers staff.

  185. CANarendra Soni says:

    Majority clients move their tension and headache to chartered accountants, sometimes without giving proper documents and information and say that you have to manage.This may be reason for such type of suicide incidence. Anyway, this step is coward like.Other CA associations should take initiative for extension of due date of filing returns and audit report.

  186. Shailendra Vaidya says:

    This bold representation made by CASS must get full support from various trade and industry associations from all over the country. It is very unfortunate that the trade associations are still silent on this serious issue where they are also worst affected in such chaotic conditions. The voice raised hare must get louder from all corners so that it reaches to the Government at right time. The CAs are the end sufferers and are being pushed to wall with no option but to finish the work at the cost of their health and mental peace resulting into sheer frustration directly affecting quality of work.

  187. abhimanyu maharana says:

    The time limit for filing IT Return(44 AB Audit Cases)must be further extended due to major policy implementation by the government such as demonetisation and introduction of GST which is no doubt a good step but on the other hand the accounts maintained by the firm needs to be according to the system so introduced by the government. It creates not only confusion but increases the extra burden of work. So the time limit must be further extended which needs to be considered urgently

  188. JAY KRISHNA RAI says:

    REALLY PRAISE-WORTHY… THIS IS NOT ONLY THE DEMAND OF CAs BUT IT IS THE PROBLEM EVERY INDIVIDUAL OF THE SOCIETY CONCERNED WITH ANY BUSINESS RELATED ACTIVITIES..THANKU SIR..GO AHEAD.

  189. salam says:

    Good decision

  190. Parimal bhattacharya says:

    Very very good decision by chartered associations of Surat.

  191. ghanshyam says:

    realy it would be great relief for accountants and tax professionals

  192. E.Swaminadham says:

    If the CA association feels over burdened with Tax Audit and GST compliance work they should request the Government to induce Cost and Management Accountants and Company Secretaries for tax audit and Gst work. A provision was already made in the Direct Taxes Code Bill to include the above other professionals.Unfortunately the bill is not yet introduced. The CA association is acting as bottle neck to include the other professionals in the definition of Accountant thinking that it is their exclusive prerogative. It is well known fact that if the present labour could not complete the work new labour force should be introduced. Then the CAs need not commit suicides or suffer from diseases

  193. Krishna Kumaran Nair.T.R says:

    Although, the C.A.Community fully supported GST, now they sit up before the computer, spending useless hours and cursing the GST procedures. All the returns must be accepted at any point of time till a cut off date and thereafter the system may verify, match or cross- match and do whatever it wants. Otherwise , there will not be any end to this suffering..

  194. Ch Tripati Patra says:

    The association has taken very good initiative for extension of due date of filing audit returns. AIFTP should come forward for demanding extension of due date.

  195. ganesh says:

    whether HSN code is compulsary in GSTR1 . We face difficult to file the returns and simplify the GST Return like VAT Return so as to file the GST return smoothly and make the nation well sufficient.

  196. CA. S.C.Podder says:

    We the CA. fraternity are trying to help the Govt of India – to pursue all business communities , individuals to file their both Direct Tax and Indirect tax returns on time ,and tries to bring others in to Tax Net .There in so many changes in GST ( made since roll out of of GST in hasty) . The implications of Accounting may it be Tax audit and Audit of Books of Accounts of others including Banks are far beyond of our mental control .besides natures calamities all over India , and festivals etc.
    Chartered Accountants Association- Surat , has rightly claim for the extension of due date of Tax audit returns filing. All the Points Raised are absolutely correct and valid .
    Ministries are incapable to realize the complicated
    issues in relation of Book Keeping , audit etc.
    Bankers are also failed to complied with all the Provisions of GST ( as per report of Print Media )
    Kindly hand over the Letter to PM , along with ” OPEN LETTER to All Functionaries in GOVT. Of India .
    We really sorry for Hasty Implementation of GST and its effect in accounts and audit. If we do mistakes ICAI will Catch hold us and will take disciplinary action.
    The Matter should also Come from the ICAI.

  197. CA R.P.GUPTA says:

    Let other CA Associations / branches should make similar representations to the Athorities

  198. CA Sidharth Bafna says:

    Voice raised need to be heard. Else for CA’s there is no diwali and no time for family and friends.

  199. R.NATARAJAN says:

    BOLD STEP / DECISION TAKEN BY CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS ASSOCIATION , SURAT IS REALLY APPRECIATED BY ALL OUR CA COMMUNITY AND WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU IN ALL RESPECT

  200. adv mayank gandhi says:

    all accountant are confuse to handle gst and previous year audit so further extended is very need full for fair and qwality audit.

  201. Ramesh Sheth says:

    Only one valid reason must prompt this sleeping CBDT /POLITICAL demon to extend time limit is: ‘ Since July 1st, we are having NEW GST EVERY DAY”

  202. AVTAR SINGH says:

    GOOD DECISION FOR BUSINESSMEN

  203. sarvesh kumar says:

    Very good initiative taken rather to just sit and watch our esteemed colleague to take such big step like suicide.No body ,including ministry will give any compensation to family of lost colleague.we are also social people and have right to enjoy.People work to serve and enjoy as well.Rightly said we are not robot and government can not give dual statement like spreading happiness and not giving reason to be happy.Go ahead,we all are with you.

  204. ABDUL AZEES BABU says:

    Govt. should consider the genuine hardship faced by all CAs due to introduction of GST.

  205. ca hitesh says:

    Only one valid reason must prompt this sleeping CBDT /POLITICAL demon to extend time limit is: ‘ Since July 1st, we are having NEW GST EVERY DAY”

  206. CA D.C.SINGHVI says:

    The letter should have been delivered to PM Modi whi is on election campaign in Gujarat. The business community should and must given fitting reply to the Government by voting NOTO.

  207. Nilesh Lad says:

    Thanks to Chartered Accountants Association,Surat
    who have raised voice for extending due date of Tax Audit.It is very Difficult to handle Tax Audit work and GST work simultaneously.
    Hope so Government will listen ours views.
    Happy Diwali to all our Professionals

  208. Anil Rao says:

    Therefore for the credibility of the accounts signed by us there should be a petition from companies for an omnibus extension of due date for holding AGMs to December 31st 2017

  209. S.L.Goyal says:

    There is no doubt that the work load of accountants has increased tremendously. First demonetisation, then GST. Two major new fianacial reforms in a span of 7-8 months have added so much that accountants and managements are truly confused as to which one to give priority: GST or Audit and ITR filing/ROC filing/calculation and filing of refund claim for excise component of stock as on 30-6-17. If some relief in filing time is not given, there will be more defaulters than compliers.

  210. CA J V BHANU PRAKASH says:

    Dear sir
    Timely representation by the association but it should reach the authority to whom it has addressed

    • LALIT VALAKI says:

      Tax audit date must be extended due to heavy load of GST compliances. Govt. Should immediately issue notification regarding date extension.

  211. Anil Rao says:

    while there are a lot of requests for extension of due date for filing IT returns and tax audit reports I don’t see a single representation for extension of due date for holding AGM under Companies Act .
    If corporates are able to sign their balance sheets on the first week of September and hold their AGMs by September 30th, there’s no reason for extension of due date for filing tax audit reports and IT returns.

    • CA Kesavalal says:

      The adoption of accounts at the AGM and tax audit are altogether two different jobs. The tax audit report may throw a surprise without even altering the financials. With the introduction of ICDS, your income may vary from what you have adopted in accounts. Also, there is need for the companies to comply with the listing requirements and so on.

  212. CA Anil Kakkar says:

    Good Job Sir, Really appreciable
