As we shift focus to the reopening of business, management still needs to assess the financial effects of the pandemic and meet financial reporting requirements. How can private companies close the books at a distance while focusing on liquidity, cost containment, complex accounting considerations and evolving operating structures? We'll discuss:

  • Addressing additional accounting implications brought on by the pandemic.
  • Organizing requirements, capacity, resources, leadership, and controls.
  • Implementing the virtual close, including lessons learned in accessibility, collaboration, and actual preparation of financial information.
  • Monitoring closing activities, including tracking, and controls, with a focus on automation, process improvements, and digitization.

Participants will learn leading practices and explore ways to make it as close to business as usual as possible.
