Accounting considerations related to the coronavirus disease 2019 [part 2]

In the last issue of the Accounting news we informed you about the publication IFRS in Focus – Accounting considerations related to the coronavirus disease 2019, which was issued in March 2020 by Deloitte. Due to the turbulent development of the situation, this publication has been updated three times already.

As the pandemic increases in both magnitude and duration, entities are experiencing conditions often associated with a general economic downturn. This includes, but is not limited to, financial market volatility and erosion, deteriorating credit, liquidity concerns, further increases in government intervention, increasing unemployment, broad declines in consumer discretionary spending, increasing inventory levels, reductions in production because of decreased demand, layoffs and furloughs, and other restructuring activities. The continuation of these circumstances could result in an even broader economic downturn which could have a prolonged negative impact on an entity’s financial results.

IFRS in Focus discusses on 30 pages certain key IFRS accounting considerations related to conditions that may result from the COVID‑19 pandemic.

The up-to date version (as at 20 April 2020) can be downloaded here.
