Accounting Implications of the Effects of COVID-19


The COVID-19 outbreak has developed rapidly in 2020. Measures to prevent transmission of the virus include limiting the movement of people, restricting flights and other travel, temporarily closing businesses and schools, and cancelling events. This will have an immediate impact on businesses. Management should carefully consider the impact of the COVID-19 on financial statements, including:

  1. Impairment of assets
  2. Discount rates
  3. Associates and joint ventures accounted for using the equity method
  4. Inventories
  5. Property, plant and equipment
  6. Expected credit loss
  7. Leases and concession
  8. Investment properties measured at fair value
  9. Revenue recognition
  10. Government assistance
  11. Provisions
  12. Onerous contracts
  13. Contingent assets
  14. Breach of covenants
  15. Events after the reporting period
  16. Going concern
  17. Disclosure of financial risk

This workshop qualifies for 1.5 CPE hours in Financial Reporting Standards and Pronouncements (Category 1).
