No, in case the undisputed audit fees for carrying out the statutory audit under the Companies Act, 1956 or various other statutes have not been paid, the incoming auditor should not accept the appointment unless such fees are paid. In respect of other dues, the incoming auditor should in appropriate circumstances use his influence in favour of his predecessor to have the dispute as regards the fees settled. The Council has taken the view that the provisions of audit fee made in accounts signed by both the auditor and the auditee shall be considered as ‘undisputed’ audit fees. In this connection, attention of members is invited to the Council General Guidelines, 2008 dated 08.08.2008
