Home business showed the way to becoming CA
CA Akshath Agarwal, Practician, Lucknow If hard work is the basis of your life, then the path to becoming a CA becomes much easier. There is no shortcut to success in it.
I decided to become CA only after the tenth, because my father had his own business and there used to be one or two CAs. His work impressed me a lot. When I had the opportunity to choose the stream in XII, then I chose the commerce. After doing XII in 2005, I had got registration in BCom and CA foundation course together.
After CA final, for three years in a private company, the articleship After doing GMCs from Hyderabad, I also applied for membership in ICAI. From the beginning I made the idea of practicing private practice. Today I am also happy with my practice. I would like to say to the students coming to this area that they have to keep their mind open in it. Mathematics should have good calculations and the basic of accounting should also be clear. Whatever opportunities the students receive during course and articleships, it is necessary to thoroughly redeem them.
Hardwork is very important in either form of practice or service. It may have been successful for a while but there is no such thing as being disappointed.

Many times, when professionals get a good company, the dream of working abroad is also completed.
Which option is better than practice or job?
It depends on the mind set of professionals. Many times they prefer to work freely rather than bind them in a bond, then practice is excellent for them. But joining with a company, service to the goal of completing the target is a good fit for those who work on the cellar. Searches are immediately available in the service line, but they have to be very patient in practice. Many times people start practicing due to family tradition.
What qualities should be within the professionals to reach the height?
This is a very hardworking field. There is no immediate provision in this Once you succeed in retaining the trust of the client, your contacts will start growing automatically, because sometimes the client in Financial Matters tells CA everything. It is the duty of CA to maintain his trust. It takes time to get started in the beginning. Therefore, try to make your full contribution while holding patience.

Nearly 4000-5000 Ca in the country are coming out every six months. If seen, their supply is low due to demand. Gradually, the demand for practice and service line is increasing here. Forcibly CA can not be made in this profession. Those who are qualified will be able to move forward.
