Chairman Message
Dear Members,

"Start by doing what's necessary; than do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible..!!"

It's sizzling hot summer and the same way branch activities have taken pace during the month with 16,000 CPE hours clocked in April.

There are lot of new opportunities for young Chartered Accounts and to abreast with it, full day Conference of New Opportunities covering Benami Prohibition law, Insolvency, RERDA and PMLA was held on 22nd April. For the first time, the conference was jointly organized by all 12 branches of Gujarat. The members also get opportunity to interact with Honorable Member of Parliament Shri Gajendrasingh Shekhawat, Chief Guest of the conference.

CA Vishnu Agrawal, Chairman WIRC along with team WIRC 2017-18 has visited Ahmedabad branch on 15th April. The series of events including felicitation of the WIRC office bearers, interactive meeting with past chairmen of Ahmedabad Branch, interaction with members and students at the seminars were organized on the day. The seminar on cash transaction, PMGKY and recent controversies in Income tax along with WIRC office bearers felicitation has received very good participation of more than 750 members.

GST, the biggest opportunity for Chartered Accountants has been the corner stone of the branch activities. During the month we have organized three 10 Days workshops / Seminar series where around 400 Chartered Accountants participated. Also half day seminar on GST covering overview and concept of supply was organized.

In our endeavor to update the members immediately on the change by regulatory agencies, in addition to quick updates, the branch has also organized the seminars on Specified Banking Transactions – reporting requirements and New ITR forms. 

Our future would be chartered accountants are equally important and lot of activities were carried out for CA Students like revision series of Financial Reporting Standards, live webcast on Financial Management,  Practical training of e-filing of TDS Returns, How to face exams and students counselling, overview of GST.

Now Aadhar has become mandatory for many activities including now required to file our income tax returns! To facilitate the members, students & their family members, ‘AADHAR ENROLLMENT / MODIFICATION CAMP’ was organized at Ahmedabad Branch premises in association with Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC). Due to overwhelming response, the Aadhar Camp was repeated for 6 days and more than 1,000 persons take benefit of the camp.

Respecting the thought Nothing is more beautiful than the smile that has struggled through years and tears we visited the Old Age Home to feel that smile. 

Happy To Serve isn’t department, it’s a philosophy!.  The motivational cum inter-personal communication training session was organized for Staff/DCOs of Ahmedabad Branch. This will certainly help to them individually and to members/ students in their interaction. 

Penning down with the quote of Winston Churchil “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often

Happy To Serve,

Sincerely Yours,
CA. Chintan Patel
