Can Statutory Auditor provide Professional Services relating to the following areas: -
a) Consultancy on Co. Law matters including e-filing of various e-forms with MCA,
b) Consultancy on Income Tax matters including e-filing of ITR & Assessment procedings,
c) Consultancy on Service Tax matters including e-filing of ST Returns,
d) VAT consultancy including e-filing of Returns,
e) Representation before CLB/ MCA, Income Tax Deptt, Service Tax Deptt, VAT Deptt etc.
f) CMA Data preparation,
g) Appraisal of Working Capital Limits & Term Loan from Bank.
In my opinion (but I am not sure), above services can not be provided now by Statutory Auditors as Services mentioned at Sl. No. (a) to (f) will fall in "Management Services" and Service at Sl. No. (g) will fall in "Rendering of Outsourced Financial Services". Is there any clarification on various services included under "Management Services"? Please clarify.
