As 2020 comes to a close, it’s fair to say we’re all looking forward to the New Year; 2020 brought a year of uncertainty, filled with unprecedented events surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic that shook the world.
However, despite the challenges, it also brought times of clarity – forcing people and businesses alike to reassess their day-to-day practices and priorities. A recent Accounting Today article explains how the “… pandemic reminded accounting’s leaders of what’s truly important, both professionally and personally, it also revealed the resiliency of the profession.”
Nevertheless, the COVID-19 pandemic provided us with plenty of content to cover – including a range of topics, from its impact on SEC filings to regulatory guidance to resulting litigation – all of which can be found here.
