As we approach the end of the first quarter of 2020, many companies are questioning how to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on the expected credit outcomes of their financial instruments. The final implementation of IFRS 9 in 2018 means that consideration must be given to whether this represents a significant increase in credit risk, to what extent government actions may mitigate that risk and how this should be reflected in quarter-end reporting. Given the levels of economic uncertainty demonstrated in the public markets and the unknown ultimate impact of COVID-19, using informed judgment to measure potential credit deterioration will require even more thought and analysis.
Please join us for a discussion on how best to consider the impact of COVID-19 for the current quarter-end.
