COVID-19 – PAO Resource Hubs

Published date: April 1, 2020

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had serious impacts not just on the health and well-being of humanity, but also the health and well-being of businesses and organisations. Efforts to help curb the spread of the virus has led to disruptions in the operations of many organisations regardless of size.

In response to the challenges, a number of professional accountancy organisations (PAOs) have set-up a repository of materials (a ‘COVID-19 hub’) on their websites. A list of PAOs and other relevant organisations that have such repositories are as follows.

The hubs usually contain general information on office operations and local economic impacts, regulatory responses and stimulus measures, as well as guidance on working from home, and personal health and well-being. The other key categories pertinent to members, students, firms and other stakeholders are listed below.

This page will be updated periodically as we identify new COVID-19 hubs.
