LOS ANGELES - eTradeWire -- Jackson Johnson, JGA President, and Dane Dowell, JGA Director, are excited to partner with George Wilson, PLI SEC Institute Director, for Key Issues in ICFR Audits for 2020 in the COVID-19 Environment, a timely and informative one-hour briefing held virtually on October 26th at 3 pm EST.

This briefing will focus on areas that are worthy of reexamination during these shifts to the financial reporting process, including controls over accounting estimates, business acquisitions, goodwill and other asset impairment considerations, and other areas impacted by the disruption and uncertainty of COVID-19. 

"Based on what I'm seeing with clients, the ever-evolving health crisis of 2020 is forcing companies to modify their operations as they find ways to save costs and continue operating in remote environments," commented Dane. "It's going to be an interesting year for companies and audit firms alike as they ensure the internal controls over financial reporting are suitably designed and operating effectively throughout the year, even if everyone is now remote."
