Respected Mr. FM, Please don’t extent the Date now

“Respected Mr. FM, Please don’t extend the Date now.”

Everyone fails to understand why CAs are begging for extension since last fortnight.

ICAI has given 3 representation? Have they got any response? Even a single letter acknowledging the issue raised? Do they feel that ICAI is one of the respected body of the World?

Do we feel respected?

Is the penalty going to be imposed on CAs?

Will the CAs be responsible for delayed filings?

When CA’s look towards clients, are they interested in getting their audits done in a time bound  manner?

Government is having complete data of number of ITRs filed till date and understand everything.

Do they care for the Taxpayer?

This is the time ICAI should have written a letter to the MEMBERS saying that

“WE HAVE GIVEN 3 REPRESENTATIONS TO THE GOVERNMENT & NO ONE CARE TO RESPOND BACK.

WE ARE GIVING 4 TH LETTER ASKING THEM NOT TO EXTEND THE DATE NOW.

ALL THE MEMBERS ARE REQUESTED TO TELL THE CLIENTS ABOUT YOUR LIMITATIONS.

Above letter should also incorporate all the apt & perfect issues raised by ICAI in its 3 representation.

Its not the ICAI or CA who need to fight for everything. Due respect & request by  CAs fraternity is being taken like “Begging”.  Let us pledge that at least CAs will never send a letter to Govt for any extension. Never in future.

“Maan na maan, mai tera mehman”

We ,the CA, consider ourselves as Partner in Nation Building. Other side also accept this? If CAs are partners in Nation building, then the Govt must think its requirement of extension or no extension based on their own inputs and stastical records. Let ICAI write simple  letter  titled

“We are feeling Insulted Mr. FM”.

Life is simple and let it be simple. Other side dont find merits in our demand, dont have time to respond back, dont realises their mistakes then why should we ask for it?

There are lot of message in the social media expressing displeasure & cautioning CA’s to take care of their heath. Right, CA’s need to take care of their health. Rather, the present move of the Government should be viewed as a “Profesional Opportunity” by CA.

We need to carry the right attitude for better health. Non extension means non compliance, obviously by the clients who are rushing at the last moment. It means imposition of penalty on the clients. It means more cases for arguments & litigation. It,s a professional opportunity.

Let us have a courage to say that

“Respected Mr.FM, Please dont extent the Date now.”

With above mindset, attitude & approach, at least we will get what we deserve – “Respect”

  1. Why to seek time extension at all at first instance?
    I disagree for any time extension for Returns/Tax audit report… Rather I am of the opinion that we should show our own strength and execute the work within the time frame.
    Of-course the client never understands this. Even if time is extended, the client is supposed to arrive at last week or last few days for audit (Though we try to educate the client(s) we are unable to change the very character …). The situation is bound to repeat in next month also.
    Its better, once for all, the things should get finished.
    Rather than demanding respect., – “by executing the task , we should earn respect..”.. .
    I myself is very proud to be the Member of Honorable ICAI.

  2. Seems like we CAs have to cry everywhere and always. We find multiple reasons to pass the blame of our ineffeciencies to manage our clients and work.
    Dept or govt, might not be working well in providing flawless technology but we all know this and we still wait for last day..
    some of us says what if client comes on last day…
    then tell him you cant do… or tell him u can try but cant committ…
    But we dont have guts to do that because we need money..
    now this profession is nothing just being crying and fighting for single penny…

  3. Dear Sir,
    Totally agree with you. But, sometimes what happens is that clients put their faith in us to do the right thing, which we intend to do so. However due to incompetence from some group of people we are unable to do so. But we are answerable to the client that return is filed late. It is not a good feeling explaining things like that.
