Effect on financial statement

The world has flipped around over the most recent couple of weeks with the effect of COVID-19 spreading to organizations and individuals all inclusive. Who might have envisioned this at start of the decade? Bill Gates said in his 2015-TED talk "In the event that anything executes more than 10 million individuals in the following not many decades it's almost certain to be an exceptionally irresistible infection as opposed to war. Not rockets, however microorganisms."

Despite the fact that it is clear most organizations are influenced by COVID-19, it is very hard to evaluate the present and potential business and money related effect.

Since the effect of the infection seems to have for the most part spread in 2020, it will be a non-modifying occasion for the period finished 31 December 2019.

For organizations with 31 December multi year-end, the nature of the occasion and a gauge of the money related impact must be unveiled, if material. In the event that it is absurd to expect to assess this, an announcement with that impact is required. These organizations will show the effect on the outcomes for the quarter finished 31 March 2020. Definitely, the effect of COVID-19 will be a key conversation point in the coming quarters on the CEO/CFO gatherings and speculator calls. The Indian organizations have 31 March as their year-end and should modify their Ind AS (Indian Accounting Standards) fiscal summaries for the evaluated money related effect of COVID-19. The reviewers should reconsider the hazard evaluation of their customers.

This would help guarantee some consistency and similarity between organizations in a similar locale. From a business point of view, maybe numerous client and provider agreements ought to be renegotiated. This will significantly affect the figures of productivity and incomes.

Lastly, as most of us work and interact remotely in the near future, it is important that the quality of financial statements, their audit and financial analysis is not compromised. We may see extensions to the IFRS financial statements filing deadlines.
