The business impact of COVID-19

June2020 The key labour and contract law, financial statement disclosures and technological consideration.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

By the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • Inform clients about the legal and business impact of COVID-19.
  • Consider and help shape your client’s response to COVID19 in terms of: Labour law issues, Occupational Health & Safety issues, Cyber security concerns, Accounting considerations, Insolvency consequences (including the basics of Business Rescue), and Directors’ liability.

DESCRIPTION

As far as the effects of COVID-19 are concerned, the main focus for accountants and auditors has been on tax relief and financial considerations. But there are very important legal, employment, technological and other burning issues that must be anticipated and evaluated.

For example: Can you cancel a contract because of COVID-19? Avoiding contact, are electronically signed documents valid? Are there any accounting considerations that you need to look at? Should the impact of COVID-19 on businesses be disclosed in their annual report as a material risk?  What are some of the data protection implications of COVID-19 in South Africa? Do flexible and remote working arrangements constitute a cybersecurity threat? Can you be held liable for distributing “fake news” about COVID-19?

During this webinar we look at these and many other questions currently, or soon to be, confronting South African businesses.
