    I have to give IPCC exam on may 2017 I had completed my articleship on 01/11/2016 so which form I had to scan and upload either certificate of service of complete d articleship or 9 month completion articleship
    • Newser says:
      if you are from direct entry scheme then you need to download form “Certificate of Service Format for candidates who registered for/converted to Intermediate (IPC) course under the Direct Entry Scheme under the category Graduates/Post Graduates”i.e 1st of ipc as above with Signature of Principal
  3. Su says:
    I’m taking transfer on 10th Feb 2017. My final attempt is May’17 Who will sign my certificate of service completion? New principal or ask my old principal to sign it?
    • Ashoksinh says:
      Hallo,Thanks for your comment.
      in the certificate stated that “Mr./Ms____________________________________ is presently serving under me as an articled assistant /audit assistant” as you presently serving under new Principal, you need to sign by new principal.
      • Su says:
        It’s not updated as of now that I’m registered under new principal. They will not raise any query regarding that?
        • Ashoksinh says:
          Probably no, As far I know and Also discuss with CA they said is not a major issue. if ICAI has some issue then they send you the letter regarding the issue and asked for such info to sent back.
          As you already submitted for transfer you can sign by new principal.

          if you want and it is possible to sign from old principal then you can do (may*better to write old date in such form i.e 9/2/2017 in CoS) and upload.
          ICAI never stop you to give Exam for normal issues.

  4. S says:
    I did mistake in completion date of my articleship and uploaded certificate of service. Is there any remedy ?
    • Newser says:
      You already uploaded hence you cannot change.
      don’t worry, if ICAI see some problem then they send you to letter for the issue and asked you to send back form, with information asked in that form (may be before or after the exam).
      still, you able to give exam.(it better to take right ‘certificate of service’ with sign by principal or member at time attending Exam)
      • Ravi says:
        I uploaded the article completion letter instead of certificate of service completion.. Any problem will be arise
        • Newser says:
          generally icai not see each and every application. but they see and find than they send you mail(letter to your address may before or after exam) regarding this and request you to submit form to their address.
          by any means icai not hold your admit card because of mistak in exam form
  5. Nikita Bhatia says:
    Hi
    I had registered in IPCC through CPT route and i am pursuing articleship training. Do i need to upload Certificate of Service? If not, any kind of CA attestation required?
    • Newser says:
      Hallo, Thanks for your comment
      Certificate of service only applicable to ca final and IPCC from direct entry student.
      As you from CPT route, certificate of service is not applicable to you. Also no need any kind of CA attestation.
  6. LALITA SARAF says:
    I have to give IPCC exam on may 2017 I had completed my articleship on 022/09/2016 so which form I had to scan and upload either CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE ( For candidates who have completed their Articleship )or or candidates who registered for/converted to Intermediate (IPC) course under the Direct Entry Scheme under the category graduates/post graduates and commenced articleship on or before 1st August, 2016 and can i take the signature of any practicing CA?
    • Ashoksinh says:
      Hi Thanks you for comment.
      i assume that you are from direct entry route, hence following certificate is applicable
      “Certificate of Service Format for candidates who registered for/converted to Intermediate (IPC) course under the Direct Entry Scheme under the category Graduates/Post Graduates”(i.e 2nd as you said) sign by your principal.
      Note- Certificate of service only applicable to CA Final student and IPCC direct entry.
  7. Dixit shah says:
    While uploading certificate of service of Completion of articleship of CA Final , I have uploaded the letter received from ICAI i.e. Article Completion Letter instead of Format given on website.
    So now what to do ?
    • Newser says:
      Hallo Dixit,
      Such things happens manytime while student apply for exam application, but ICAI never stop you for giving exam.
      at presently icai not issue any guidline for ‘what to do if wrongly uploaded certificate of service’.

      As far i know: After Revieving you application, ICAI Send you a letter that ‘you have wrongly uploaded Certificate of Service’ and asked you to provide such… with sign and sendback. you need to do whatever asked in letter and sent to ICAI(address given in icai letter).
      it better to carry such Certificate of service while attemting Examination

      Thanks for your comment

  8. sameer says:
    Hello sir,
    I have completed my 1 yr 6 month article ship and after that I got my transfer but till now hv not registered with another CA. There is a gap of 4months so how can I fill and upload service certificate Kindly help me on this.
    • Ashoksinh says:
      Hallo Sameer.
      i did not fully understood your problem. as you said you taken transfer but not register with another ca that means you continue with old ca ?.
      as far i understand your concern, i think you can upload certificate of service sign by old principal.(Assume that you are from direct entry and applying for CA IPCC).
      Thanks for your comment
  9. Doran says:
    My frnd has cleared cpt but didn’t clear ipcc so after graduation he converted into direct entry scheme but he has not started his articleship so while filling ipcc examination form is he required to submit certificate of service ?
    • Ashoksinh says:
      hay, Thanks for your comment..
      see while applying for exam, if there is require for uploading certificate of service then you need to upload it, otherwise you not allowed to go next step i.e payment and conform.

      hence your friend converted to direct entry rout need to upload COS (if asked while applying for exam).

      then he need to upload form
      “Candidates who registered for Intermediate (IPC) course through CPT route and appeared in the Intermediate (IPC) Examination in one or both groups but did not pass any of the group/s and converted to Intermediate (IPC) under the Direct Entry Scheme and commenced practical training on or before 30th April 2017”
      may sign by principal whom your friend started/want to start articleship.
      because in certificate said “commenced practical training on or before 30th April, 2017”.
      i also see such problem first times, you may contact to icai sahayata for such issue

  10. manoj says:
    I have complete my airticalship on 5 Oct. 2016 but still I not submit form 108 can I attached declaration form of completed service
  11. manoj says:
    In final exam. Form
    • Ashoksinh says:
      Dear Manoj
      as you not file 108, your articleship is not completed, means you currently service articleship training.
      As per my knowledge, you need to file form “The Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Are Going To Complete Their Articleship On Or Before 30th April 2017” get the form attested by your principal
  12. Deepak Joshi says:
    My CA is not telling me my date of completion including extension. He just signed the certifate of service and told me that the date of completion is not necessary, so do upload it without the completion date. What is the remedy in this case?
    • Ashoksinh says:
      hi there,
      Date of completion is generally 3 years from starting your articleship. if your articleship start on 12/09/2013 then your date of completion of articleship is 11/09/2016. if you taken extention than date of completion is date writen in form 108 or date specifiying in letter receiving from ICAI regarding completion of articleship. you can also calculate i.e 11/09/2016 + no. of days extention teken.

      if you already uploaded than no need to worry. By any means ICAI can’t hold your admit card just because discrepency has crept in while filling the form.
      if ICAI will do whenever any discrepency or mistake is found in examination form ….then…they generally send a letter to student stating that you not write require inf. etc in form pls submit the required docs……..then you need to send such inf. or docs bindaasly

      thank you for our comment

  13. pankaj says:
    Dear sir I have completed my articleship one year ago and now please tell me can a non practicing CA attest certificate of service
    • Ashoksinh says:
      Yes. in certificate stated that “Attestation by Principal / Member of ICAI”
      A member of ICAI can sign form because the eligibility for signing form is membership of ICAI not practice.
      Thank you for commenting
  14. Abhi says:
    I completed 1yr 4month articleship… nd on 11jan i taken termination for health issue. Now im going to Wright 2nd attemt of IPCC in may ….at this time im not doing articleship under any one after 3month only i can re-register with some one else .

    So wheither i can take in certificate of service ….sign with some other practicing CA?bcz my old principal was out of station.

    • Ashoksinh says:
      i don’t think you have more option.
      you may certified COS by other CA or Call ICAI helpline.

      if you sign by other CA and if ICAI found something wrong in examination form ….then…they generally send a letter to student stating such issue and asked to submit the required docs……..then you need to send such inf./ docs bindaasly

      By any means ICAI can’t hold your admit card just because discrepency has crept in while filling the form.
      Thank you

  15. kaushal says:
    My ca(principal)expired so i took transfer too but didnt join other firm yet in this case who shall attest my cos?
  16. Abhi says:
    I was unable to go at this time icai in my region…nd from morning im trying to call icai helpline but no response .

    For direct entry 9mth articleship is compulsory….I think main issue is wheither i completed 9mth of articleship training or not …nd in my 1st attempt i submitted my principal sign cos hard copy to institute.

    Nd at this time i taken from their termination too ..so it will not create any issue by taking sign with someother ca.

    • Ashoksinh says:
      yes, you can
      generally icai not cross checking exam form or etc… even if they check and find wrong then they send you letter for submit/send such form etc.
      and also you have genuine reasons so upload BINDASLY

    • Newser says:
      hay, Thanks you for comment.
      see while applying for exam, if there is require for uploading certificate of service then you need to upload it, otherwise, you not allowed to go next step i.e payment and confirm.

      i assume that you giving CA Final Exam. than you need to upload “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship” and sign by your principal or other member.

      it noted that uploading certificate of service is only applicable to student who appering for CA FInal or CA ipcc student from Direct entry only.
      So Certificate of Service is not applicable to regular IPCC students

        • Newser says:
          i hear such issue for the first time, I recommended to take help from icai sahayana for such issue.

          you may to get the sign from old principal because in document says “Mr/Ms ____________________is presently serving / has served under me as articled assistant and completed or will be completing 9 months of articled training as on 1st November, 2017.”
          as you completed 9 month articleship under old principal you may get sign from old principal.

          i think you cannot take sign from other member as in signature area clearly stated “Signature of Principal”. hence merely member cannot become your principal.

          or

          best option is start article training under new principal [from the date of sign by new principle in such (whatever) documentation required for joining new principal after termination…such date will be considered] and get sign from new principal.

          **i always prefer to call icai esahayata for such complicated issue**

  28. shuhada nazar says:
    my article ship has already completed and its my first time registering for the final exam. should the deceleration form stating my completion of service to be attested by any member or principal
    • Newser says:
      no..you no need to atteste declaration from principal nor member….
      this is self-certify…so download CERTIFICATE OF SERVICE ( For candidates who have completed their Articleship ) from final–> sign it–>& upload it
      there is only option “Signature of the Candidate” in such form
  29. VAIBHAV GAUBA says:
    I completed my articleship training in September, 2016.

    I submitted a scanned copy of certificate of service (dated 12-2-2017) attested by a Practicing Chartered Accountant for May 2017 exams.
    Since there is no change in format, can the same copy be submitted for November 2017 exams or a fresh certificate of service needs to be filled and attested by a Chartered Accountant?

    • Newser says:
      the fresh certificate of service needs to be filled “Signature of the Candidate only” hence no sign required by principal nor member.

      see form “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship”

  30. Shweta says:
    I’m CA final student appearing for nov 2017 exam. My articleship will get complete on 31st dec 2017. And I’m through cpt route. So which certificate of service to download
    • Newser says:
      download Certificate Of Service – (For Intermediate and IPCC) from final (the last one)–> sign it–>& upload it

      in form said “For candidates who are presently in service, serving the last six months of training as on 1st November, 2017 and due to complete 3 years of training (including excess leave,if any) on or before 30th April, 2018.”

  31. Avdhoot says:
    I have made an error in cetificate of service regarding date of completion but it is correctly entered in exam form What should I do?
    • Newser says:
      Hey there, Thanks for your comment
      you already uploaded hence you cannot change
      dont worry ! if there is error made in certificate. By any means ICAI can’t hold your admit card just because discrepency has crept in while filling the form. or certificate.
      generally, they not hard cross check your exam application. even if they check and find wrong then they send you to letter for submit/send such form to icai.
  32. Mack says:
    I made call at icai regarding which certificate of service form to upload for the students of ipc under Direct Entry Scheme & who have completed the articleship. The person who answered me didn’t said confidently but said U have to upload who have completed the articleship. But i still have doubt on him whether to fill who have completed the articleship form or certificate of service under Direct Entry Scheme. Can you reply
    • Newser says:
      Hi, Thanks for your comment
      yes, you need to upload “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship”….it applicable for both student who completed their article under direct entry and normal…
      download from above one–> sign it-=> upload it
      • Melvin says:
        Just to clarify, so a student who has registered under direct entry scheme and has completed her/his articleship, need to fill and upload certificate of service – articleship completed form. and not certificate of service under direct entry scheme right??
  33. Anil says:
    Sir, my articleship is going to complete on 01.09.2017. Can I upload certificate of service who has completed articleship format ? As the format which is applicable for me is not signed by my principal and he is not going to sign my COS in future also. As the last date of filing of online application for Nov 17 exam is 1st September I am thinking that I shall upload COS who has completed articleship format. With this is there will be any problem in future?
    • Newser says:
      currently, the format of COS applicable to you is “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Are Going To Complete Their Articleship On Or Before 31st October 2017” CA Final.
      in form clearly said that
      I ___________________________________ hereby certify that Mr./Ms ____________________________________ is presently serving under me as an articled assistant /audit assistant and his/her due date of completion (including excess leave if any) will be ____________________________________ i.e. on or before 31st October, 2017, as per deed of articles.

      that means you recently serving at the time of signing CoS.
      in form “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship” said candidates who have completed their Articleship which you not completed.

      hence as per my opinion is you need upload “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Are Going To Complete Their Articleship On Or Before 31st October 2017” and sign required by your principal.

      if you have any problem with the current principal that they may not sign than i suggest you please call ICAI eShahayata..

      —————————————————————–
      in another part of question you ask “this is there will be any problem in future?”
      then answer is if there is any problem arise due such form you uploaded (i.e Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship ) then, ICAI may simply send you the letter asking that you fill wrong form and ask you “to provide such required inf., sign (by candidate & principal) and send to provided address”..this letter may come before or after examination.
      however by any means ICAI not hold your examination.

  34. Ritu says:
    Helo sir ,
    I have already signed my certificate of service in may 2017 attempt.. can the same stamped certificate of service can be valid for nov 2017 attempt
    • Ritu says:
      Please reply ..it’s urgent
    • Newser says:
      Hey there, Thanks for your comment
      as per my opinion, you cannot upload the same certificate of service, you need to upload new CoS.
      every CoS asking Date of signing.

      if the old certificate of service is allowed then, why ICAI asking you to upload it again. hence it required to upload new CoS.
      (previously in manual system, need to sign and required to submission at ICAI branch….in new computerize system, required to sign and required to upload)

  35. Pooja says:
    Sir,
    My article ship will be completed on 3rd September 2017 but since I didn’t have much leave my principal had told me to work till 31st July 2017 only. But the last date to submit exam form for November 2017 is on 25th august. Which declaration form shall I choose? Shall I choose completion of article ship or completion of article ship before 31st October 2017 and get the same attested from my principal.
    • Newser says:
      hello there, thanks for your comment.
      yes, you need to upload “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Are Going To Complete Their Articleship On Or Before 31st October 2017” and get the same attested from my principal because your competition date consider is 3-09-2017, not 31st july.

      and in form said “I ___________________________________ hereby certify that Mr./Ms ____________________________________ is presently serving under me as an articled assistant /audit assistant and his/her due date of completion (including excess leave if any) will be ____________________________________ i.e. on or before 31st October, 2017, as per deed of articles.”

    Sir,
    I had completed my article ship in 2015.I had appeared for may 17 ca final exam and then uploaded certificate of service. At that time the format included a section for member’s attestation.However now i have to appear once again but there is no section for member’s details in certificate of service. So is the certificate required to be attested by any CA for Nov 17 CA Final exam??
    • Newser says:
      yes, you need to upload “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship”

        Hello Sir,

        I fall in the category as stated in the comment above, however I have got the Certificate of Service signed by a Member of Institute, would it create any problem? Kindly help…

        • Newser says:
          as you need to upload “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship”….
          only your sign is required…
          as per my opinion, if you already taken sign from member, i dont think it create any problem (mention that, your sign must on form)
  38. anusha says:
    sir,my articleship will get completed by march 2018..do i need to submit certificate of service? if i need to submit, then by which form i need to submit?
    • Newser says:
      yes you need to submit a certificate of service.

      I assume that you going to appear for CA Final (from IPCC rout) than you need to submit “Certificate Of Service – (For Intermediate and IPCC)” from CA Final colomn

  39. sneha says:

    • Newser says:
      Hey there, Thanks for your comment
      you already uploaded hence you cannot change
      dont worry ! if ICAI see some problem then they send you to letter for the issue and asked you to provide such information (this letter may come before or after the exam).

      By any means ICAI can’t hold your admit card just because discrepency has crept in while filling the form. or certificate.

      see while applying for exam, if there is require for uploading certificate of service then you need to upload it, otherwise, you not allowed to go next step i.e payment and conform.

      you need to submit “Certificate of Service Format for candidates who registered for/converted to Intermediate (IPC) course under the Direct Entry Scheme under the category Graduates/Post Graduates” from IPCC section.

    I am really very confused about getting attestation on Certificate of service format if you have completed articleship.
    Some say yes and some no please help

      yes…if you have completed articleship then you need to upload Certificate of service…
      only self sign required …this is self declaration…no need to get sign from member
      so download “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship”–>self sign it–> upload it
      :
  44. Hardik Kanabar says:
    I completed my articleship before 2 years. While filling the “Certificate of Service” form, there is only self declaration fields are given, as this time the format has changed. So still i need to take ICAI Member’s signature on that form? Because if I read the guidance note there it is still mention to take signature?
    • Newser says:
      Hi, Thanks for your comment
      the format provide by ICAI, in form, there is no place of the sign by member or principal, (in other forms they specified sign of member or principal)
      hence this is self-certification of the form, required to sign by candidate only

      so download “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship”–>self sign it–> upload it

  45. Sumit Maini says:

  46. Raksha says:
    Hello sir,

    I have a query..

    My articleship was completed on 25 April 2017. However I had an extension which is going to be completed on 25 sep 2017.

    So which certificate of service shouldI fill.

    The one where it says articleship is completed

    Or

    The articleship is to be completed on or before 31 st oct 2017

    • Newser says:
      Hallo there, Thanks for your comment
      as per my opinion, you take extension, that means your articleship not completed and it shows you are currently serving under articleship.
      so i think “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Are Going To Complete Their Articleship On Or Before 31st October 2017” is applicable as you are currently serving as an articled assistant/audit assistant…The articleship is to be completed on or before 31 st oct 2017 is applicable (i assume that as you take extension & articleship completion form not file )
  47. Komal Kejriwal says:
    Hello sir my articleship is going to be complete within 3-4 days ..if I fill the exam form after my completion date which certificate of service is applicable to me ???
    • Newser says:
      Hallo, Thanks for your comment
      i assume that your article ship is going to be complete within 3-4 days including excess leaves.

      so as per my opinion, if you apply after articleship completion date i.e after 3-4 days (including excess leaves) than “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship” apply to you.

      as in form “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Are Going To Complete Their Articleship On Or Before 31st October 2017” where written

      I ___________________________________ hereby certify that Mr./Ms ____________________________________ is presently serving under me as an articled assistant /audit assistant and his/her due date of completion (including excess leave if any) will be ____________________________________ i.e. on or before 31st October, 2017, as per deed of articles.

      the word ‘presently serving under me’ means at the time of signing a certificate of service.
      so if you apply after 3-4 days i.e your articleship completion date (including excess leaves) than this form not apply as at that time you are not serving under him.
      and form “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Have Completed Their Articleship”

      it noted that i assume that you included excess leaves in computation of articleship completion date

      you may take sign of your principal in “Certificate Of Service For Candidates Who Are Going To Complete Their Articleship On Or Before 31st October 2017” before such articleship completion date and apply for exam (upload) after completion date

    I am an IPCC student (not direct entry) and have completed my articleship. I had kept the scanned copy of COS ready to upload it but while applying for the Nov 17 exam I did not see any option to upload the same. Where do we have to upload it??

    Since I have completed my articleship, it was not necessary to submit COS for May 17 exam but now it is required for Nov 17 exam, but as I said there was no option provided to upload it.

    What should I do now? I have already submitted my exam form. Please help

    • Newser says:

      so don’t worry….

The issue is while filing up the form i was not asked to upload certificate of service which is stated mandatory in the guidelines.While submitting there was no error shown in the form for not uploading the same.I just need to confirm is there any thing i can do about it??Will my application be valid?? Kindly reply ASAP
    • Newser says:
      i think you are from CPT rout not from direct entry.
      uploading form is required only for direct entry student, thats why option of ulpoading form is not shows.
      so don’t worry….

      if you are from direct entry student than it require
      COS only applicable to IPCC student from direct entry (also who converted from PCC/IPCC to direct entry etc) and CA Final student.
      so don’t worry….

      I___________________ hereby certify that Mr/Ms
      is presently serving / has served under me as articled assistant and completed or will be completing 9 months of articled training as on 1st November, 2017.

      there written “is presently serving / has served under me as articled assistant and completed” that means may you corrently serving under new principal,…..
      so as per my opinion you can’t take sign from previous principal, as you are not currentry serving under him….you are currently serving under new principal…hence need to sign from new principal

      you said ‘registerd in articleship through direct entry CPT route’ i did’t understand properly..is this is direct entry or CPT.

      so i did not understand your question….please call ICAI e-shahayata

    Hey
    I am serving my articleship extension period under another CA and it will be competing before 31st Oct 2017 and I do have my attempt due in nov ’17 . What details should be filled in exam form under articleship details column ?
    What should be initial date of commencement of articleship i.e date of commencement of extension of articleship or any other date ??
    And do I need to submit certificate of service?
    • Newser says:
      in articleship details
      as you presently serving tick–> not completed
      initial date of comm. of articleship–> date which your articleship start(generally date on which date of franking)
      articlehsip completion/due date –> date which articleship going to complete

      iniatial date of commencement of articleship is date on which your articleship start

      commencement of extension of articleship or any other date is not a “date of commencement of articleship”
      yes you need to submit certificate of service, without uploading, you not allowed to go next step and payment
