Notice of resignation of auditor

Auditor’s Resignation Letter


An auditor may resign from his office by depositing written notice to the company concerned at its registered office. This Auditor’s Resignation Letter can be used by an auditor to give the required notice. 

The form of notice an auditor must give is not prescribed by the Companies Act 2006 but usually takes the form of a letter addressed to the company.

In accordance with section 519 of the Companies Act 2006, auditors of private companies must make a statement of circumstances connected with their resignation unless there are no such circumstances, in which case, the auditor should state this to be the case. This letter of resignation includes both these options. Our Guidance Note - Accounts, Audit & other statutory filings includes details of the procedural steps that the company will need to follow in the event that the notice does include relevant circumstances.

This Auditor’s Resignation Letter is in open format.

The requisite details should be inserted into the highlighted fields or the wording can be adjusted to suit your purposes. Wording in square brackets is optional. If it is required, then the brackets should be deleted and the wording within them retained. If the wording is not required, then it can be deleted.
