Members’ Event - Going concern and resilience: lessons learned from COVID-19

Held on 30 October 2020, this virtual half-day event explored what has been learnt from the COVID-19 crisis and how these lessons can be used to plan for and mitigate risks in the future. Watch the recordings to find out how reporters and auditors can contribute to strengthening business resilience.

With a focus on going concern and resilience, the event featured a keynote speech from Mark Babington, the newly-appointed Executive Director of Regulatory Standards at the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) and a debate with panellists from across the financial reporting and audit ecosystem to discuss experiences from the crisis. Technical presentations and Q&A sessions also covered going concern, impairment, and common COVID-19 accounting and audit issues.

ICAEW’s Essentials CPD Roadshows

As part of ICAEW’s range of Essentials CPD series, the Accounting/Financial Reporting update course is aimed at all accountants preparing accounts under UK GAAP. Covering new and topical issues, it is suitable for all entities whether micro, small, medium or large. With UK GAAP being based on the international accounting standard for small and medium-sized entities (IFRS for SMEs), the course will also touch upon the latest developments in IFRS. 

The Autumn programme has now been launched, which will continue to be delivered virtually in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Core titles from the Essentials CPD range, including the Accounting/Financial Reporting update seminar, are being delivered by live webinar with recordings available to watch on-demand subsequently.

For bookings made before 28 December 2020, a discount of 75% on the individual delegate rate continues to be available.

Details of the Autumn programme can be found here.
