Be compliant and manage risks

Ensure compliance with requirements and manage potential risks

Given the complexities associated with the business-as-usual close for your organization coupled with the challenges of conducting a virtual close, there is limited precedent into how a global pandemic such as COVID-19 will impact businesses across the market as they prepare to complete their first virtual close.

Not unlike other global crises, it is critically important to be prepared for COVID-19-related volatility and the likely impacts it will have on successfully preparing and executing the financial close process.

As always, our main objective remains the same: to provide you with the best quality of service. That is why we have developed this dedicated webpage, including key areas of focus, and information on how to plan, respond, and execute a virtual close.

Audit & Assurance

Certifying your compliance

Our Audit & Assurance professionals are uniquely positioned to create trust in your company. Leveraging our proven audit methodology and extensive industry expertise, Deloitte can provide assurance over financial reports, calculations or business processes and help you demonstrate compliance in the following areas:

  • Financial covenants

    Actions taken in response to the spread of Covid-19 have resulted in significant disruption to the operations of companies at a global level putting major constraints on their liquidity. With the impact of the shutdown also starting to reflect in financial reporting, financial covenants agreed with credit institutions may come under additional pressure.

    We can perform procedures to validate certain inputs to the covenant calculation and provide assurance over the compliance with the agreed indicators.
