The members of a company may remove an auditor from office at any time.
Section 140 of the Companies Act provides the rule for removal of the auditors before the expiry of term. This has to be done by passing a special resolution and approval of the Board of Directors.
To remove an auditor from his position before the end of his term, a special resolution and prior consent from the Central Government are needed. Within 30 days of the Board Resolution's adoption, Form ADT-2 requests permission from the Central Government to remove auditors.
A casual vacancy gets created in the office of an Auditor due to reasons like resignation, death and/ or removal of the respective Auditor. In either of the scenario, company has to fill the casual vacancy so created by appointing a new Auditor.
If, however, it is learnt that the old auditor has not been informed, and the client is not willing to make the first move, it would be necessary to ask him the reason for the proposed change. If there is no valid reason for a change, it would be healthy practice not to accept the audit.
