COVID-19 Resources from IFAC's Network

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is presenting unexpected and extreme challenges for organizations of all sizes and sectors across the world. It is quickly changing how entities operate and how individuals live and work. As a knowledge convener, IFAC has developed this dedicated web page with essential resources, guidance and advice from our professional accountancy organizations (PAOs) and other stakeholders.

Our goal is to help organizations and individuals demonstrate the agility to adjust, innovate and manage this rapidly evolving situation. We will continue to build and curate the page in a way that we believe best meets your needs.  

NEW: We have developed dedicated web pages focused on audit (includes audit evidence, auditing accounting estimates, auditor reporting and subsequent events etc.) and financial reporting (includes going concern, fair value measurement and impairment, lease accounting and hedge accounting etc.), which provide a summary of the key challenges and implications from Covid-19 and highlights various relevant resources which are available under each topic. 

We have also connected with our PAOs to facilitate the sharing of information about their online continuing professional development (CPD) resources at, for use by member organizations for their members. We have developed an Online CPD Services for PAOs resource page with materials, links and contact details for more information.

As of today, topic areas are: Audit, Ethics & IndependenceFinancial ReportingBusiness Continuity & RecoveryProfessional & Personal WellnessGeneral Information (this section houses member organizations' Covid-19 hubs and standard-setting board pages), Gateway Articles (these will be cross-referenced in the topic segments, where appropriate). We want to continue to help build and maintain a robust and fully functioning global accountancy profession today—and in the future.
