How ERPCA enabled digital transformation for a Rajasthan-based CA firm

Today, digital transformation is no longer just an option, it is a business imperative. The field of chartered accountancy has also seen a significant shift towards embracing digital tools to streamline operations, improve efficiency, and stay compliant with evolving regulations. In this case study, we explore how a chartered accountancy firm in Rajasthan leveraged the ERPCA practice management software to navigate the challenges of digital transformation.

Dr.Arpit Haldia and his business partner, Kuldeep Johar, have been operating a Chartered Accountancy firm since 2002 with offices in Jaipur and Jodhpur in Rajasthan.

Over the years, they’ve adapted to the changing landscape of taxation and compliance, particularly with the advent of Goods and Services Tax (GST) in 2017. As digital filing became the norm, the firm recognized the need for a comprehensive practice management solution to keep up with increasing compliance requirements.

Remote work during COVID-19:
