Independent Audit of Community Projects under CSR
The CSR Committee of ICAI has issued an advisory titled ‘Advisory for Independent Practitioner’s Report on Utilization of CSR Funds'. The advisory states that “Wherever the company undertakes the CSR activity through a third party / NGO, it is advised that all such companies should obtain an Independent Practitioner’s Report on Utilisation of such CSR Funds from the auditor / CA in practice of the third party / NGO, to whom the funds are given by the Company for implementing CSR activity”. In accordance with ICAI's advisory, CSR2life aims for transparency in CSR expenses by CSR implementation agencies/NGOs. If a project undergoes an independent audit, companies have a higher level of trust. CSR2life.com is a transparent CSR platform which employs an impartial third party to evaluate the expenditure of projects funded by corporates.
