CA Articleship Registration

CA IPCC Result is Declared and Soon after completion of ipcc every student search for a good CA firm to spend his 3 years of articleship. Despite searching many firms one may not get good firms which fits his purpose. Here you can read our article how to search a good CA firm for articleship.

After fruitful search of good CA firms one may get into it by qualifying all the rounds of their recruitment process which may varies from firm to firm. Soon after joining a firm one needs to complete their articleship registration as early as possible without any delay.

In most of the CA firms partners themselves communicate the trainees about how to register and how to proceed further. But the duty of completion of articles lies in the article assistants. Here I’m giving some basic information about registration of articles .

Soon after joining the CA firm it is advisable to take the e stamp paper (non judicial) which acts as a bond between the article trainee and principal. Usually it is called as deed of articleship.

At the time of commencing articleship training, the CA Student has to intimate ICAI that he is starting articleship and furnish all relevant details regarding the same. He is required to purchase Form 102 and Form 103 on payment of Rs. 50 from ICAI for articleship registration and furnish all details by filling the forms before sending it ICAI.

Form 102 and Form 103 for Registration of Articleship can also be downloaded from the website of ICAI.If he downloads from website then he has to send a DD for 50 rupees to icai while sending the form after it is filled up.
