The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India ( ICAI ) has extended the Multipurpose Empanelment Form for the year 2020-21.
The Multipurpose Empanelment Form for the year 2020-21 is live at https://meficai.org w.e.f. 23rd September 2020. The original date of submission was 12th October 2020 which was extended till 23rd October 2020.
Various representations have been received by the committee requesting for further extension of date due to several reasons stated in such representations. The committee is aware of difficulties such as territorial heavy rains leading to disrupted internet connections, intermittent office workings due to Covid-19 being faced by the CA firms and members across the Country and additional information in Part B to be given for empanelment other than Bank Audit.
In view of above, it is decided to extend the date of submission of MEF and declaration for the year 2020-21 till 6th November, 2020, considering the last date of filing the Income Tax and GST Return as 31st October 2020.
With this current extension of 2 weeks, the MEF form will be made available for the members for 45 days, so no further extension is feasible to be given.
