Almost every event that impacts business has a financial reporting implication for a company, and the changes COVID-19 has wrought on the business environment is no exception. When there is an economic downturn, questions naturally turn to whether or not a company’s assets are impaired. Given the severity of the broad COVID-19 impacts on the economy, industries and individual businesses, the major accounting firms have been publishing guidance on some of the accounting and reporting implications that companies need to consider in 2020. The issues addressed are related to loan and lease impairments, lease modifications, securities valuations, subsequent event reporting and other topics.
