Chairman's Message

Dear Esteemed Colleagues Dear Esteemed Colleagues
This month is the season of due dates and deadlines for many of the assignments in direct and indirect taxes of our profession. A professional has to properly plan and execute the work. A proper staff allocation for each assignment is the need of the hour. The extension of due date for individual returns has come timely. In between this busy season a professional has to thrive hard to update the knowledge and also forge into newer areas. I am sure each one of us is geared to meet the professional commitments.
The Government of India initiative of Atal Pension Yojna need to be explained to staff working in our offices and encourage them to make the contribution. A small contribution and sacrifice today will work as both a great pension plan and also a definite sum of amount will reach the next generation. I also urge the young members to make some contribution to National Pension Scheme of Govt of India to have a happy retired life.
Sub Regional Conference 6th Sub Regional Conference in the State of Andhra Pradesh - Shreyas "Excellence in profession", conducted on 5th & 6th July 2019, was successful with the unstinted support of our members. Address by Chief Guest CA. Jomon K George, Chairman SIRC of ICAI will go a long way in our professional career and his august presence amidst us itself made our conference ever memorable. The sessions conducted by our eminent speakers were highly educative and was a value addition to each one of us. The spiritual session by Dr. CA. K. Parvathi Kumar was remarkable. In his address he explained how to lead a peaceful and stress free happy life, which is apt for the prevailing day to day working environment.
