Dear friends

Wish you all a very happy Financial Year 2021-22 ending and wish you all a very happy Financial Year 2022-23. I pray to the almighty to give wisdom to the concerned authorities to reduce the Burden of Compliance both on assesses as well as we professionals.

As the world was limping back to normalcy from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, the global economy was hit hard by the Russia – Ukraine war. The world is yet again staring at an uncertain future as this action of one of the Big Brothers will prompt the others to follow suit if the smaller neighbor doesn’t oblige the Big Brother by accepting its hegemony. I am reminded of the words of Leo Tolstoy in Christianity and Patriotism “ In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interest of the people to whom war is always pernicious event even when successful.” No doubt our Government and the concerned officials deserve appreciation for the efforts put in to evacuate our students and citizens from the conflict zone. The policy makers should seriously consider why the young generation is opting for education at foreign destinations, especially for medical education. They should seriously reconsider the admission policy for professional education. The Government should consider as case study the professional course conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants. The Institute is grooming world class Chartered Accountants year after year.

This issue of the AIFTP-Journal is ‘Tax Companion’ eminent professionals have contributed to same. I thank them for sparing their valuable time for the journal. Before parting I am tempted to share wisdom of Leo Tolstoy once again “I have now understood that though it seems to men that they live by care for themselves, in truth it is love alone by which they live. He who has love, is in God, and God is in him, for God is love.”
