ABOUT ICMAB
THE INSTITUTE
Institute of Cost and Management Accountants of
Bangladesh (ICMAB) is the national body of the
professional Cost and Management Accountants of
Bangladesh. Established with the prime objective of
promoting and regulating the Cost and Management
Accounting profession in the country, the Institute offers

education and training to the students interested to


pursue career in this field and provides highly
recognized CMA degree on fulfillment of requisite
qualification. The Institute undertakes research in
relevant fields and is the sole authority to issue
practicing license to its members.

LEGAL STATUS
ICMAB is a statutory organization constituted by the
Government under the Cost and Management
Accountants Ordinance 1977 (Ordinance No Llll of
1977) and regulated under the Cost and Management

Accountants Regulations 1980 (as amended up-to


date). It is the member of a number of regional and

LEGACY OF THE INSTITUTE


The Institute has a long heritage of rendering
professional services to the nation. The journey of the
glorious profession of Cost and Management
Accounting began in the pre-independent Bangladesh
with the founding of a branch of The Pakistan Institute of
Industrial Accountants (PIIA) in 1958. As we started a
fresh journey towards success and prosperity in
independent Bangladesh, the profession entered into a
new era. In 1972, the Institute was re-established in the
name of Bangladesh Institute of Industrial Accountants
(BIIA). Thereafter, the members of the Institute through
their excellence in various fields proved their credibility
in the national and international outfit which started

building the credentials for the Institute for gaining


acceptability from all concerned and to attain
confidence of the government and business community
of the country. With the changing need of time the
Government of Bangladesh renamed it as The Institute
of Cost and Management Accountants of Bangladesh
(ICMAB) through promulgation of The Cost and
Management Accountants Ordinance 1977 (Ordinance
No LIII of 1977). Now in 2014, after a 40 years arduous
journey, the chronicle of success earned by our
predecessors has brought us to the place where we
stand today.

GOVERNANCE
The Institute is governed by a Council constituted under
the provision of the Cost and Management Accountants
Ordinance, 1977. The Council consists of 12 Fellow
Members elected by the members of ICMAB and 4
nominees from the Government of Bangladesh. The
Council is elected for a period of three years. Every year

PRESIDENT'S STATEMENT

Dear Members:
It is my privilege to welcome you to the 43rd Annual
General Meeting of the Institute of Cost and
Management Accountants of Bangladesh (ICMAB). You
entrusted me the noble responsibility to run the office of
president. It was indeed a great honor for me and I
would like to convey my heartfelt thanks and gratitude
for the trust and confidence you have placed.
This year we have lost four members of our family-our
past president Zahir Uddin Ahmed FCMA, Dr. Habibur
Rahman FCMA, Moral Md. Amzad Hossain FCMA, Md.
Mohibullah, FCMA. I pray to the Almighty Allah for the

salvation of their departed souls.


We began the year with a number of pre-set targets to
be achieved over the three-year term of the council. A
number of developments surrounding the accounting
and regulatory environment of the country gave rise to
additional challenges to be addressed on priority basis. I
am pleased to announce that we have successfully
faced those challenges, moved as planned, towards our
strategic directions and achieved our expected results.
2014 was another year of continued progress for
ICMAB. On November 10, 2014 we have signed a

The Institute of Cost and

PRESIDENT'S STATEMENT
historic MoU with CIMA. This collaborative arrangement
as detailed in the activity report, will help achieve global
benchmark. Our endeavor for gaining global
accreditation is not limited to CIMA alone; we are in the
process of finalizing an MoU with the Chartered Institute
of Public Finance and Accounting (CIPFA), UK for mutual
partnership and recognition as well.
You are all aware that ICMAB pioneered the concept of
an independent Audit and Accounting Standard
Monitoring Board as back as in 1999 and a proposal to
form an independent oversight body was submitted to
the concerend ministry.The recent initiative taken by the
Government to introduce Financial Reporting Act (FRA)
is in line with our concept and is aimed at establishing
good governance. However, due to the influence of a
section of professionals, the act was going to be passed
without proper representation of your beloved institute
ICMAB. We have taken this issue seriously and left no
stone unturned to establish our role in this regard. As a
president, I have attended interviews and talk shows in
different electronic and print media; our members have
written articles in leading dailies; we have organized a
press conference with high coverage; met concerned
ministers and secretaries and finally with our collective
effort have established our legitimate position in the
Council under FRA.
The institute has spent significant time and efforts to
maintain good lobby with the policy makers and
government agencies. We met several ministers and
secretaries; Chairmen of NBR, BSEC, BCIC, BPC on
different bi-lateral issues. We also worked to build
enduring rapport with the entrepreneurs and employers
in the private sector.
ICMAB has submitted a project proposal to the
Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
ministry to train around 4000 commerce and accounting
educated graduates in Information Technology Enabled
Services (ITES) for Business Process Outsourcing (BPO).
ICMAB will be a strategic partner with the concerned
ministry in this project. We are hopeful of a positive
outcome of the proposal.
The Institute's representation in the regional accounting
bodies was very vibrant. This year ICMAB has been
elected Chairman of SAFA Committee on Non-profit
Organizations and Co-operatives. ICMAB presented
papers in seminars and conferences organized by

10

member bodies of SAFA.


During the reporting period, the institute was also
vibrant in both electronic and print media and could
draw attention of the wider society to the profession.
The institute's building and administrative office is being
refurbished and decorated with a corporate look. The
development of a dynamic website of the institute is in
progress. It will be more interactive and informative. The
institute is also implementing a full-fledged ERP for
increased operational efficiency.
We are equally focused to build administrative capacity of
ICMAB to run it in a more professional manner. In-house
and external trainings were arranged for the employees
to improve their operating and administrative skills.
ICMAB has maintained a close lobby with concerned
government authorities to implement cost audit in
relevant industries. It is going to release the Bangladesh
Cost Accounting Standards (BCAS) for the first time in
its history as a guide to the practitioners and cost
auditors. ICMAB has also been invited as a permanent
observer in the Cost Accounting Standard Monitoring
Board of the Institute of Cost Accountants of India.
You will find details of our activity in the Report of the
Council. I would however, like to say that we are happy
with the progress achieved so far but not complacent.
We have miles to go and there are challenges ahead.
We are mindful of the challenges and moving in the
right direction.
At the end I thank you all for the trust you have placed
and the invaluable support you have extended to me. I
am grateful to my colleagues in the National Council and
members of Branch and Chapter Councils who have
always extended their unconditional support to each of
my initiatives. I am also indebted to all the past
presidents for their intelligent guidance at all critical
time. Last but not the least, the officers and staff of the
Institute has given best of their service and spared many
of their personal time to meet deadlines. I thank them all
for their dedicated service to the profession.
Long live ICMAB.

EDUCATION, EXAMINATION AND STUDENT AFFAIRS


OFFICE BEARERS' MEET WITH THE STUDENTS
Office Bearers of the Institute held two meetings-one
with the students of all level and the other exclusively
with the students having one or two subjects remaining
to qualify. The purpose of such meetings were to
comprehend the problems being faced by the students
and their views on the overall academic environment of
the Institute with an ultimate objective to take up

necessary remedial measures. In each of the meetings


the students enthusiastically took part in the open
discussion and shared their views on academic and
related issues with the office bearers. Based on the
feedback received from the students a number of action
plan was undertaken and subsequently implemented.

CHANGES IN REGULATION TO ACCOMMODATE ADMISSION CRITERIA


As per the strategic plan adopted by the Institute,
students passing Higher Secondary Examination or
equivalent shall be allowed to get admitted in the
foundation level. In line with the policy direction,
initiative was taken to make necessary changes in the
regulation to accommodate admission of such students.

A proposal to this effect has been submitted to the


Ministry of Commerce and a number of follow up
meetings have held on this issue. The proposal is now in
the stage of final approval after due clearance from all
relevant ministries.

POLICY ON EXEMPTION
Students getting admitted in ICMAB are allowed
exemptions on certain subjects based on their past
academic results. But the administrative procedure to
give exemption to the entitled students had been a very
cumbersome and time consuming process. Difficulties
were being faced by the newly admitted students to get
quick decision on their exemption status. Moreover,

allowing exemptions, to some extent were left to the


discretions of the administrative staffs. Considering
these, the Education Committee has developed a written
exemption policy simplifying the administrative
procedure of allowing exemptions to the newly admitted
students. The policy has been duly approved by the
council and implemented since July 2014.

GUIDELINE ON INTERNSHIP REPORT


As a prerequisite to attain CMA qualification, students
need to undergo internship program, prepare a report
and present the same before the Examination
Committee. There were however, no prescribed
guideline to help the students in preparation and
presentation of the internship report. A written standard

on writing an Internship Report prepared by Mr. Nikhil


Chandra Shil FCMA, Consultant, ICMAB has been
endorsed by the Examination Committee after due
review. This is expected to be a helpful document for the
students to successfully complete their internship
program.

NEW ADMISSION BROCHURE


The admission brochure which is distributed among the
admission seekers has been redesigned with rich
contents and impressive look. This professionally

developed promotional material will create a positive


image of the Institute in the mind of the potential
students.

EDUCATION, EXAMINATION AND STUDENT AFFAIRS


SMS AND ONLINE INFORMATION SERVICES FOR STUDENTS
Communication with the students has been made more
interactive and fast. Instead of traditional notice-board
communication, students now get information through
SMS and web-posts. Important and urgent information
like rescheduling or cancellation of any class are now
instantly sent to the students through SMS; Academic

notices are posted in the student section of the ICMAB


website. These have helped reduce students hassles to
a great extent. It is expected that once the new ERP
system is in place, maintaining communication with the
students will be faster, easier and more systematic.

PROMOTING CMA EDUCATION AMONG POTENTIAL STUDENTS


JAGANNATH UNIVERSITY

The new council since inception of taking the


responsibility was actively searching for partnership
with globally recognized accounting bodies to bring
about needed reforms in its education, examination and

established contact with CIMA- the premier
management accounting body of the world, to explore
possible areas of partnership and co-operation between
the two organizations. ICMAB held several meetings
with the CIMA delegates led by its Regional Director Mr.

was to enter into a technical collaboration arrangement
with CIMA to bring the academic curriculum and
examination system of ICMAB to a globally recognized
standard which will ultimately culminate in mutual
recognition of CMA degree by globally accepted
professional bodies. However, during the discussion
process ICMAB continued to search for alternative

of the Independent Directors was held on March 27,
2014 at ICMAB. Stock Market regulators, researchers,
financial market analysts, representatives of listed
companies and stock exchanges were present as panel
discussants. It may be mentioned here that since 2012,

to comply with corporate governance guidelines issued

the independent directors as introduced by the BSEC is
an encouraging step towards good governance but in a

independent directors and inadequate compensation
are among others, the barriers to reap benefit from the
role of the independent directors. Skepticism was also

revenue receipt is TK. 961.57 lac as against 923.27 lac

income from sponsorship of programs, has also
increased by Tk. 37.63 lac. However, Income from
Subscription and Fees from students has declined by
37.92 lac mainly due to lower enrollment of students.

SAFA Conference, Convocation and Best Corporate

Award 2013 were organized by ICMAB. As such there


have been increases in certain expenses. Additionally, in
2013 the government declared 20% dearness
allowance which has impacted our employee related
costs. The expenses related to Seminar and Conference

AUDITORS REPORT
AUDITORS REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF
THE INSTITUTE OF COST AND MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTANTS OF BANGLADESH (ICMAB)
REPORT ON THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
We have audited the accompanying Financial
Statements of The Institute of Cost and Management
Accountants of Bangladesh (ICMAB), which comprise
the Balance Sheet as at June 30, 2014 and the

Statement of Income and Expenditure and Statement of


Cash Flows for the year ended on that date, and a
summary of significant accounting policies and other
explanatory information.

MANAGEMENTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


Management is responsible for the preparation and
fair presentation of these financial statements in
accordance with Bangladesh Financial Reporting
Standards (BFRS) and for such internal control as

management determines is necessary to enable the


preparation of financial statements that are free
from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or
error.

AUDITORS RESPONSIBILITY
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these
financial statements based on our audit. We conducted
our audit in accordance with Bangladesh Standards on
Auditing (BSA). These standards require that we comply
with ethical requirements and plan and perform the
audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the
financial statements are free from material
misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit
evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the
financial statements. The procedures selected depend
on the auditors judgment, including the assessment of
the risks of material misstatement of the financial
statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making

those risk assessments, we consider internal control


relevant to the entitys preparation and fair presentation
of the financial statements in order to design audit
procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances,
but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the
effectiveness of the entitys internal control. An audit
also includes evaluating the appropriateness of
accounting policies used and the reasonableness of
accounting estimates made by management, as well
as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial
statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is
sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit
opinion.

OPINION
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above
give a true and fair view of the state of the affairs of the

Institute as of June 30, 2014 and of the results of its


performance and cash flows for the year then ended.

The Institute of Cost and

c. the Balance Sheet, Statement of Income and Expenditure and Statement of Cash Flows dealt with by the report

3.2.1 RECOGNITION AND MEASUREMENT
The cost of an item of property, plant and equipment
(fixed assets) is recognized as an asset, if and only if it is
probable that future economic benefits associated with
the item will flow to the entity and the cost of the item
can be measured reliably.
Property, plant and equipment have been accounted for
at cost less accumulated depreciation. Cost includes
expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition

of the items.
Subsequent cost of enhancement of an existing asset is
recognized as a separate asset, only when it is probable
that future economic benefits associated with the item
can be measured reliably. All other repair and
maintenance are charged to the income statement
during the accounting period in which they are incurred.

3.2.2 DEPRECIATION ON FIXED ASSETS


i. Depreciation on fixed assets has been charged on straight line method. Full years depreciation has been charged
on the assets acquired during first half of the accounting year, while no depreciation has been charged on the
assets acquired during the second half of the accounting year as well as on assets disposed off.
