Chairman Message
Dear Members,

I wish you a very happy CA Day, as on 1st July 2017, our Institute completed 68 years of its glorious journey of excellence!

Last month remained hectic and historic, due to lots of learning, deliberations and hard work by the members and Ahmedabad Branch to support the government for transition from 1st July to Goods and Service Tax regime, the biggest tax reform after Independence. Also it’s pride privilege to have Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat Shri Vijay Rupani as Chief Guest of Mega GST Conference organized by Ahmedabad Branch on 3rd June. Furthermore, within less than a month, he graces the CA Day Celebration alongwith Union Cabinet Minister Shri Vijay Pratap Rudy on 1st July where Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi addressed the CA Profession!

The vital excerpts from speech of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi are reproduced below for all of us to think and act:
  • ICAI foundation day and India's new economic phase of GST both fall on the same day
  • Your signature carries immense faith, please do not break that trust that is placed on you
  • Chartered accountants played the most important role in helping us realise the dream of one nation, one tax, one market
  • If I call you the 'rishi munis' of the economy, I would not be wrong
  • You are a pillar of India's economy
  • Indian Chartered Accountants are recognised worldwide
  • Let’s contribute towards India in making it what we want it to be, by the 75th year of independence in 2022
The Team – Ahmedabad Branch is committed and has done whatever is required to ensure that the members and students are equipped with the latest developments of economic reforms like GST, RERA, Demonetisation, Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code, Benami Property Law and many more. For the month of June alone, the seminars conducted resulting into 27,481 CPE hours of learning for our members.

We have organized series of seminars, conference and workshop on GST to make it Good and Simple. During the month of June, virtual GST certificate course, GST morning batch Clause by Clause reading workshop, Sector specific GST Impact seminars, Two Days GST Conference and other seminars were organized.

In addition, seminar of US tax and FBAR filing, Direct tax refresher course, practical training on Information System Audit, Seminar on Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code 2016, seminar on RERA etc have been conducted for the benefit of members.

Special GST Training seminars for CA Students, future chartered accountants organized, where more than 1,000 students get benefited.

Alongwith all these knowledge related seminars, we have also organized Cricket League with 32 teams participation and arranged for Live screening of India V Pakistan cricket match.

Respecting the thought “Yoga is not just a workout – it’s about working on yourself”, the yoga day was celebrated by Ahmedabad Chapter of all three Professional Institutions ICAI, ICSI and ICAI-CMA at Shivanand Ashram.

Proud to be CA!
