The Logo of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nepal (ICAN) bears


a well-known line impregnated with a rich moral lesson. It is extracted from
Chapter XIX (text line no.39) of the Yajurveda. It is the second of the following
four-line stanza.

k'gGt' df b]jhgfM
k'gGt' dg;f lwoM .
k'gGt' ljZjf e"tflg
hftj]bM k'gLlx df ..

Literally, k'gGt' dg;f lwoM means:


Purity of mind and clarity of wisdom.
The Vedic text is chanted aloud during occassions of good omen for
purification of mind, body and environment.
ICAN realizes that internally purified and enlightened mind is the lifeblood of
righteousness. We consider it indispensable for both doing right things and
doing things right.
We, therefore, pledge to be guided by the Vedic principle. Our policies,
aspirations and expectations, strategies, and functioning style shall always
be determined by the above message.
We wish to be blessed with your best wishes for our success.

Report of the President


Dear Colleagues,
It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to the 17th
anniversary of the Institute of Chartered Accountants
of Nepal. I on behalf of my predecessor CA. Madhu Bir
Pande take pride and honor to present before you the
annual report for the fiscal year 2012/13. The Institute is
marching ahead gloriously in its 17th year and with great
sense of pride I would like to mention that the Institute in
its short span of time has contributed for the development
of the accounting profession and economic development
of the country which is a milestone achieved.
First of all I would like to extend my deepest gratitude
to all the members for electing me as 17th President of
the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nepal and
bestowing faith in me to lead the Institute to a new
greater height.
I would like to highlight and present some of the major
achievements that took place during the year in the
overall development of the Institute.
It is my immense pleasure to mention that the
construction work of the Institute own building at Satdo
Bato, Lalitpur at the land received on lease from the
Government of Nepal is on the final stage expected to
be completed by February 2014 . I express my sincere
thanks to all the members and stakeholders for their
generosity for contributing donation to the building.
In order to expand the outreach of ICAN, the Pokhara
branch of the Institute has been inaugurated and I believe
this branch will be successful in providing effective
service to the members and students in this region.
Further the Institute is in preparation to set up a branch
office at Nepalgunj soon.
Membership
During the year a total of 70 members were granted new
CA membership and a total of 15 Chartered Accountant

Similarly 36 Chartered Accountant members were
granted COP during the same year.

Regarding the Registered Auditors Members a total of

Continuing Professional Education Development
As a part of the Institute plan to enhance the capacity
and skill of members, the Institute has been regularly
conducting continuing Professional Education Training in
different parts of the country. The CPE training covered
various topics regarding accounting/auditing Standards,
taxation and other topics on International and National
issues related with the profession.
During the year a total of 33 CPE trainings were
conducted in and outside Kathmandu, out of these 23

future plans and action plans of the Institute. These
interaction programs not only provided our members
with opportunities to discuss the recent developments

During the year, total of 7 National seminar and 2
International seminar was conducted. Similarly the
Institute conducted 4 training on members capacity
building for its members in different parts of the country
on the topics relating to accounting, auditing and taxation.
I would like to reassure that more such quality programs
wiil be conducted for our members with topics pertaining
to the profession.
Code of Ethics
Presently, the profession and audit service is highly
challenged from various parts , threatening the scopes of
the Institute and ICAN act, it is our foremost responsibility
to comply the code of ethics and to convince all sectors
that the Institute has good ethical disciplinary system.
Unless we assure to the Government Regulators,
International Accounting Bodies and users of audit
service that the Institute and its members are fully
adopted to its code of ethics based on IFAC code
of ethics, audit profession in Nepal cannot get full
acceptance from all parts.
Inorder to maintain ethics and professional integrity of
its member the Institute has adopted the International
Federation of Accountants (IFAC) Code of Ethics. I
sincerely urge all members to works towards making our
profession of accountancy more effective, independent
and more responsible towards the profession and nation
and further enhance the reputation of this profession,
by carrying out the professional conduct with utmost
honesty and sincerity.
Publication
During the year the Institute has published four issues
of the Nepal Chartered Accountant Journal along with
one special issue of SAFA Conference and four issues
of newsletter.
Similarly, study materials of CAP I, CAP II and CAP III
level Chartered Accountancy Course has also been
published . As a reference material for the students the
Institute has regularly published Revisional Test Papers
and suggested answers of past examinations which has
been a guiding tool to the students for the preparation
in the examination

The trend of student pursuing Chartered Accountancy

different level of the Chartered Accountancy Course.
