Government of India (GOI) strings along with the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Institute of Chartered Accountants of India ( ICAI ) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales ( ICAEW). The two statutory bodies will sign the MoU on the Gandhi Jayanti this year i.e. on 2nd October 2019. The signing ceremony will take place in London, UK.
Although the two had already signed any agreement in the year 2008 for the benefits of their members, however to multiply the best interests of their members and to bolster their professional boundaries, both the parties wants legal association with each other via MoU.
CA. Prafulla P. Chhajed, President, (Institute of Chartered Accountants of India) ICAI is very happy with the consent of Indian Government for the same and he expressed his high spirits saying
He also shed light on automation in finance and accounting fields adding that “Further, Digital Accounting and Assurance Board has initiated a Joint Research with Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW) on automation in finance and accounting space by interviewing companies in India and UK. This would provide insight into implications for the future roles and skills of accountants in the digital era. Both these developments are an indication of ICAI’s constant recognition and contribution at the international arena and continued efforts in fostering new areas of opportunities across the globe for the members”.
This is indeed a matter of elation that ICAI is fastly moving forward on the path of Digitalisation and International recognition which will inevitably open more avenues for Indian CAs at global front in the upcoming digital world.
