If previous auditor is removed bcoz of giving qualified report then as per clarifications issued under clause 8 part 1 First schedule then incoming auditor should understand whether point of view of previous auditor is appropriate for this he will have to talk to management also and previous auditor also, he will talk to previous audit after taking due permission from the management so management permission is required in this regard. Once management permission is taken there is no break of confidentiality
