    COVID-19 – managing impacts on FMC reporting entity annual reporting and audits

    The rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation is having a significant impact on FMC reporting entities’ financial reporting obligations and the ability to perform audits. Auditors should continue to comply fully with required professional and ethical standards.
