COVID-19 − Impacts on Financial Reporting

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is spreading around the globe rapidly. The virus has taken its toll on not just human life but businesses and financial markets too, the extent of which is currently indeterminate.

Entities need to carefully consider the accounting implications of this situation. The Grant Thornton International Ltd. IFRS team has published two documents on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the financial reporting under IFRS:

  • COVID-19: Financial Reporting and Disclosures;
  • Reporting the impact of COVID-19 on your business.

The publication COVID-19: Financial Reporting and Disclosures identifies key financial reporting areas that entities need to consider when determining the impact on their business and, on the results, financial position and disclosures in their financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. This is not an exhaustive list and there may be other areas not included in this publication that entities should consider. The areas are not listed in order of importance.

The document Reporting the impact of COVID-19 on your business sets out ten questions CFOs should ask themselves to ensure that the financial statements not yet issued present fairly the financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the entity. This is not an exhaustive list. The questions are not listed in any order of priority, because their applicability will depend on facts and circumstances.
