Maintenance of Professional Address by Members

As per Regulation 187 of Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 every member in practice is required to have a professional address in India in his own charge or in charge of another member. Section 27 of the Chartered Accountants Act 1949 provides that where a chartered accountant in practice or a firm of such chartered accountants has more than one office in India, each one of such offices is required to be in the separate charge of a member of the Institute. The member in charge shall be actively associated with the office situated in the said professional address.

Some instances have come to the notice of the Institute where the practicing members/firms have intimated professional address without maintaining office at such address. This is in violation of the provisions of the aforesaid and for giving a wrong or false address suitable action under the Chartered Accountants Act and Regulations is required.

Members are requested to kindly ensure that the professional address given to the Institute is the address of their office in terms of the regulatory requirements mentioned above.
