How are you?? It has been once again a long time before I am back here to share my life with you. In the last few days, my days at the office have really been busy with some of the audits trying to test all my knowledge before the final accounts and the audit report gets finalised. I finished up two such audits today itself. So, it was a kind of victory day for me as well as our Indian Cricket team which won a One-Dayer against New Zealand in Colombo.
When I made my last post, I got along a very nice feeling on the next day while I met the Vice President of our Institute, CA Amarjit Chopra Ji. He was into our city for a Seminar for CA Professionals and CA Students on Accounting Standards – a topic which has always caught my interest. While just attending the seminar and enriching my knowledge was making me feel nice, I also happened to get replies to some of my curiousities regarding Accounting Standards and also gave a couple of replies when Mr. Vice President sent some questions to students. Overall, it was a nice knowledge enriching session during the seminar and just when it ended, Chopra Ji came near me and passed me a compliment. I felt great that time. 🙂
Before that seminar ended, we were also informed of the next seminar on Service Tax & VAT which was around 4 days after. While I was coming out of the seminar hall, I was just thinking of whether I would get permission to attend that seminar or not because the timings just clashed with my office timings. I somehow managed to get permission for that too. Mr. J. K. Mittal, a renowned speaker on the subject from Delhi, updated us on the latest amendments in the Service Tax made by Budget 2009. It was another good seminar to attend and the second half of the seminar saw the topic of Refunds in Punjab VAT by CA Ashok Bhatia. While it could be an interesting topic, I personally could not get enjoy much of that speech as I suppose the lack of much practical knowledge in VAT Refund Procedures was the reason. Anyhow, the seminar surely added something to my knowledge.
The month of September, as expected, had been pretty busy due to work pressure in the office. The work pressure in office is expected to increase more so in the later half of the month, just because the accountants have been busy finalising the books of accounts while fighting with the long power cuts.
I also got an opportunity to experience something new in my professional field, the details of which may find a place in my next post, because I just started working on it yesterday.
So, while this post is dedicated to some pretty nice experiences regarding my professional life I came across in the last couple of weeks, I do wish that my learning process goes on.
More on my life and the latest assignment I have handling to come in the posts to come.
