TEQ-2 Seven professional quotients for success in modern business

Introduction

Covid-19 brings unprecedented uncertainties that have inevitably changed the lifestyles of individuals and business landscapes. We have explored the impact of Covid-19 on financial reporting in our last webinar. This time, we would take a closer look of how Covid-19 impacts on the application of IAS 36 Impairment of Assets. In this webinar, we will explore:

  • What types of assets are subject to impairment review? 
  • When should the impairment loss resulted from Covid-19 be recognised?
  • What should be the timing of testing for impairment in view of the outbreak of Covid-19?
  • How does Covid-19 impact on the discount rates used, the calculation of VIU and FVLCOD?
  • What would be the implication of interim reporting?
  • How did some listed companies prepare and publish their financial statements so far?
