COVID-19 :

Dear members, colleagues and partners

I wish all of you and your relatives are in good health in these uncertain times.

We are in a situation like never before. The COVID-19 is a threat to our health and to all those around us, and the best way to deal with this situation besides advice from health institutions is social distancing. However, this distancing does not mean complete disruption or interruption of our activities. Now more than ever we find it important to stay in constant touch with our members and associates and share experiences with each other through virtual communication.

For us as professionals, it is important to offer our expertise to meet the demands of businesses knowing that this situation is causing an economic crisis and businesses will need business structuring advice, cash flow forecasts, advices on tax or credit matters.

Taking into consideration the impact of COVID-19 on the profession and the economy in general, we as a professional society have opened a portal on our website that will enable the sharing of articles, opinions and other information by our members and associates, international federations and professional organizations, in the face of the current situation.

I hope that together we can handle this situation as easily as possible.
