Regardless of industry, financial condition, workforce composition, changing customer preferences, etc., all entities face numerous financial reporting and accounting challenges related to COVID-19, albeit the nature and degree of those challenges will vary.
In this seminar, we discuss some of these challenges and also set out other financial reporting issues that may be relevant for years ending on or after 31 December 2020 as a result of regulatory focus, the current economic environment or changes in accounting standards. The seminar will cover the following:
