Pandemic Problems: Prominent Legal Issues & Trends in a COVID-19 World
This presentation will focus on pressing legal issues raised by the pandemic and how those may the accounting profession and its clients. The presentation will not be an exhaustive list, but rather will focus on “hot issues” in an effort to prepare you for questions you might receive from clients and trends that will affect the industry.
Accounting for Changing Times: Impact of COVID-19, PPP & Other Programs
COVID-19 created many disruptions and, in response, many relief programs. Relief programs include various grant and loan programs, such as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Emergency Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). The extent and significance of COVID-19’s impact has given new relevance to existing accounting standards. This session will discuss how COVID-19 is affecting financial statements and audit requirements.

Tools for Remote Auditing in the “New Normal”

Is this going to be the “new normal?” Why not make your team more productive every day with tools built for collaboration and remote work? How do we have enough security, speed and productivity in this work environment? What is “digital exhaust,” and how can you use “process mining” to identify unusual data? Can you provide better service for your clients while delivering better work experiences for your team? This session will discuss tools, tips and technologies that can make your team more effective in this “brave new world.”
