Since early March 2020, an organization from all domains, ranging from accounting institutions to entrepreneurs has been struggling to manage a quarter-end close with a distributed and sometimes distracted workforce. Accounting services have faced challenges and are continually making adjustments to the ways they navigate these complex business challenges.

While the full impact of the novel COVID-19 has yet to be seen, it has made it quite clear that organizations of all sizes are contending with an economic and health challenge unlike any the World has seen in generations. The terrifying clause is that there’s limited precedent into how a global pandemic like COVID-19 will impact the accounting tasks of all organizations and prepare them for COVID-19-related volatility.

The businesses have shifted to remote accounting solutions amidst rebuilding their revenues and Global FPO provides guidance on how to plan, respond to, and execute the virtual accounting process, including the industry-specific considerations.
