In this webcast, panelists explore audit committee developments and considerations as companies look to reopen and contemplate the road to recovery.
Join the EY Center for Board Matters for another episode in our webcast series, Better Questions for Boards, designed to provide directors with insights and questions to consider as they engage with management on a variety of complex boardroom issues.
With the interim reporting period fast approaching, the impact of the disruption from COVID-19 continues to permeate all aspects of business. As we move toward the post-lockdown phase, audit committees will continue their focus on material matters, changes to key performance indicators of financial condition and operating performance while also reimagining the new normal.
Our panelists will summarize the following matters to aid audit committees as they prepare their upcoming discussions with the board, management and auditors:
- Accounting and disclosure considerations, including tax developments
- Risk management considerations
- Financial reporting considerations
- What we’re hearing from audit committee chairs of US public companies
