ICWAI Signs MOU with CBEC
The Institute of Cost and Works Accountants of India (ICWAI) and Central Board of Excise & Customs have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on 13th April, 2010 to set up ACES Certified Filing Centres (CFCs) across the country. These CFCs can be set up and operated by the Members of ICWAI, who have valid certificate of practice issued by the ICWAI. This initiative aims at providing services to taxpayers who may not have requisite IT infrastructure/ resources, to use ACES. These services will also be beneficial to the industry and they will not be required to visit the office of CBEC for Registration, Returns, etc. The services would be available on payment of prescribed services charges for various services such as digitisation of paper documents and on-line filing/ uploading of documents such as Application for Registration, Returns, Claims, Permissions and Intimations etc. in ACES.
