      No, No,
      Form FC5 is regarding transfer of FC funds to other person as grant (unregistered person means not registered with FCRA). So if you pay audit fees to auditor obviously he is not registered with FCRA. You can pay to him. No need to file FC5.

    Hello Sir,
    We have small orphanage.
    Regarding FC rules we cannot using on cash basis. We pay cheque at school for everything purpose and construction and repair pay cheque . But remuneration and marketing we have to pay cash. Remuneration are below Rs. 5000/-.
    So, please give me advise that how much cash we can use every month? Because marketing for food we have to pay cash for local market. Thanks

      Mr. Das,

      As per my opinion, cash expenses should be avoided as far as possible. In your cash you should pay remuneration through cheque only. Ask staff to open bank account.
      In case of food expenses, you can give advance to care taker by cheque and he will pay cash from it.
