Advertising by members in practice engaged in Coaching/Teaching activities – ICAI

Image result for icaiRegulation 190A of the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 provides that a chartered accountant in practice shall not engage in any business or occupation other than the profession of accountancy, except with the permission granted in accordance with a resolution of the Council.

The Council has passed a Resolution under Regulation 190A granting general permission (for private tutorship, and part-time tutorship under Coaching organization of the Institute) and specific permission (for part-time or full time tutorship under any educational institution other than Coaching organization of the Institute). Such general and specific permission granted is subject to the condition that the direct teaching hours devoted to such activities taken together should not exceed 25 hours a week in order to be able to undertake attest functions .

Keeping in view the broad purview of Clause (6) of Part I of the First Schedule to the Chartered Accountants Act, 1949, an advertisement of Coaching /teaching activities by a member in practice may amount to indirect solicitation, as well as solicitation by any other means, and may therefore be violative of the provisions of Clause (6) of Part I of the First Schedule to the Chartered Accountants Act, 1949.

In view of the above, such members are advised to abstain from advertising their association with Coaching /teaching activities through hoardings, posters, banners and by any other means, failing which they may be liable for disciplinary action, as per the provisions of Chartered Accountants Act, 1949 and Rules /Regulations framed thereunder.

Subject to the above prohibition, such members may put, outside their Coaching /teaching premises, sign board mentioning the name of Coaching/teaching Institute, contact details and subjects taught therein only. As regards the size and type of sign board, the Council Guidelines as applicable to Firms of Chartered Accountants would apply.

VPP Scam – Company Registration & DIN Allotment

Image result for scamHello everyone, Trust all of you doing extremely well in your life. Today I would like to inform you about VPP scam. The VPP scam is now common for all young or new entrepreneurs.  

Story – When you registered a company or just applied for DIN and there comes a postman with VPP parcel, that seems to be sent through Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), at your door steps and asks for Rs 1900 for delivering the packet as it is Value Payable Post. You in joy, that you have received the certificates from MCA after application of Company Registration in India, gives Rs 1900 to the post man and receives the packet. Now you are enthusiastically opening the packet. Bingo there is the Scam !! The VPP Scam !!

Why this is scam – This is scam because we purchased useless material and paid Rs 1900/-. We think that Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) sent parcel to us and it is very important for us but truth is opposite. Its a scam. 

Various fraud companies including certain publishing houses, extract this information of such newly registered company from MCA. They send various books, journals, copy of registration certificate or may be some useless papers etc. to the newly registered addresses of new companies through VPP i.e. they instruct the Posts to get the charge while delivering the item like COD (Cash on Delivery).

When it started – As per our analysis this scam started since 2011. 

Reason – The entrepreneurs who want to get their Company/LLP registered provide all their information to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. Now, this information gets public and all details are available to the people about the new companies being registered.

Solution 

  • Share this post on social media because your small efforts may enhance knowledge of young and new entrepreneur reading this scam.
  • Inform to your family members that you not order any parcel and not pay any amount before your confirmation. 
  • If by mistake you paid then raise a complaint against such publication house and aware to your circle about such scam.
