Scanning of balance sheet and p/l account

Tony John (Chartered Accountant) (6085 Points)

While doing e-filing for AY 2013-14, the Balance Sheet and Statement of Profit and Loss are to be scanned and attached along with 3CA/ 3CD.


My query is whether the said Financial Statements need to be signed by the auditor and client before it is scanned (after converting it to PDF document) or does converting the Excel sheet to PDF suffice (without the auditor and client signing)?

Anyway the auditor shall digitally sign after all the documents are uploaded.


Please help.
