Dear Esteemed professional colleagues,
Warm Greetings to all..
After the time bound Audit of Bank Branch and Insurance, we are a little free in the month of May and at the same time busy with planning for Income Tax return filing of Individuals and Non-Tax audit cases, which shall be filed on or before 31st July in order to avoid additional fee under section 234F as applicable from this Assessment Year onwards. The Income Tax Return Form for the Assessment Year 2018-19 was notified by the Department on 5th April and there are a few amendments and modifications were made in the return form. Considering the importance of changes made in the return form, we the Kottayam Branch has arranged a CPE meeting on “Recent changes in Income Tax Return Forms and Penalties under the provisions of Income tax Act.
CA.R.Krishnan one of the leading Chartered Accountants from Aleppey branch lead the session and it was very fruitful and brainstorming. Around 110 Members were attended and it was a very good get together also.
As you all know the success of all meeting depends on the active participation of our members and I take this opportunity to thank all members for their participation in time irrespective of professional and personal busy schedule.
