This course is designed for individuals who would like to obtain a better understanding of auditing notes and disclosures, specifically notes and disclosures to COVID-19 issues, government shutdown issues, and civil unrest issues that occurred in 2020. We will review the notes and disclosures to the financial statements and discuss what accountants and auditors should consider when writing and reading the notes, disclosures, and Management Discussion & Analysis (MD&A).
