Chartered Accountancy body Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has issued a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding the Unique Document Identification Number (UDIN) which has become mandatory for Chartered Accountants (CAs) to furnish from 1 April while auditing Tax and GST documents.
The FAQs have been released on the official UDIN website which also contains links for practising CAs to register and generate the number.
The FAQs contain answer to questions like what is an UDIN number, how to generate it, details required during registration and more. It also gives a list of all the certificates which need to be attested by the UDIN number and a detailed walk-through of the whole registration process.
The FAQs also answer other auxiliary questions which might arise during the UDIN implementation process.
UDIN is a system generated 18 digit unique number for every audited document to avoid forgery and misrepresentation done by fraudulent individuals posing as CAs. Currently, the number has been made mandatory for all GST and Tax audits from 1 April but it would be extended to all certificates from 1 July.
To make the registration process easy, no documents would be required to be uploaded on the portal to generate the number.
