Dear Professional Colleagues

Wish you all Happy Teachers Day

All the members are in practice are teachers for their articles. I salute all the principals who are training their articles in a best possible manner, it is a great contribution to the profession and Institute as a whole. Articles are the brand ambassadors of our profession, we need to make them equip with requisite skill set to face the challenges of the world.

First of all, I thank all the members those who actively participated in our 18th State level conference. This year conference was special for various reasons because we hosted the conference jointly with seven other branches after a gap of three years as you all know due to Covid Pandemic, our Beloved President Dr. CA Debasis Mitra had graced the occasion and addressed our members, we hosted conference at new, spacious, convenient venue for the first time and well received by the members. If participants feel happy participating in our conference, it is the biggest gift to Chairman and committee members for their efforts in hosting such a mega event, we hope that we have achieved the same based on the feedback of members.

This month being the hectic month for those members who are practicing in Direct Taxes, reason being the Tax Audit season. The month long race will end on 30th September. Each year is a new year to members because there will be a lot of changes in Tax Audit report every year, members are need to abreast with latest changes, accept the challenge and complete the season with a smiling face. Hope members are geared up for the season. Following are some of my few humble suggestions:

Put systems in place and work methodically.

Tax Audit season may come and go, but not your health, so upkeep your health

Serve the client and government but not beyond your capacity

Protect both Country and Client within the permissible limits of law

Collect all supporting documents, MR’s and very importantly your fees.

Train article as well as your clients too

Enjoy your profession, keep smiling always, and think with cool head.

Use technology extensively, but never forget to use your basic analytical skill before signing off.
