The Indian government is set to introduce Bills to amend existing laws governing chartered accountants, cost accountants and company secretaries in the current Budget session, a senior government official said. The proposed amendments will allow registration of large size consultancy firms in India.
The amendments will remove the hurdles that come in way for members of ICAI, ICSI and ICWAI to jointly form Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs). These amendments will enable formation of LLPs comprising professionals from different fields. Right now professional bodies are not able to form LLPs because of certain clauses in respective Acts.
