ICAI: Annual Membership Fee/Certificate of Practice Fee and GST


A circular of Annual Membership/Certificate of Practice fees for the year 2023-2024 was issued by the Members & Students Services (Grievances Handling and e-Sahaayataa) Directorate of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. On 1st April 2023, the fees would become due and must get paid by 30th September 2023. Since the tax invoice would have been generated therefore the members are asked to pay the fees. 

The circular furnishes the structure of fees for various categories of members. For the members who have the Certificate of Practice (COP), the fees would vary from Rs 5310 for the associates to Rs. 8,260 for fellows. Into two age groups the members not having COP are being divided i.e. below 60 years and above 60 years. Rs. 1,770 for associates and Rs. 3,540 for fellows are the fees for the former group and Rs.1,298 for associates and Rs. 2,714 for fellows are the latter group fees. With 18% all fees specified are inclusive. 

Annual Fees Circular For the year 2023-2024

Members are reminded to pay their annual membership/certificate of practice fees for the fiscal year 2023-2024, which become due on April 1, 2023, and must be paid on or by September 30, 2023. All Members are asked to pay the fee right away because the Tax Invoice (in terms of GST Liability) has already been prepared. The annual membership/certificate of practice fee, including the GST applicable is shown below.

Members can pay the whole membership/COP fees in advance in the exact amount for 10 years (1+9 years) together with GST. In such a circumstance, if the fee is increased in the future, their membership/COP will not be removed/cancelled from the Register of Members/COP due to the fee increase. [It should be noted that an ACA who has paid an advance membership fee for a period of no more than ten years and then opts for FCA status is needed to pay the difference in fee (the difference in fee in conversion from ACA to FCA and Fellow Member Admission Fee) for the remaining period.]
