Protacio T. Tacandong, Chief Operating Officer of RT&Co, told The Manila Times that businesses and industries continue to deal with the volatile environment brought about by COVID-19.

The pandemic, he noted, has made the auditor’s role more critical as shareholders depend on audit opinions provided in financial statements, which should mirror a company’s true financial position, especially during critical times.

The health crisis, Tacandong said, has heightened severe threats to fundamentals such as asset valuation, liquidity, contingent liabilities, and profitability, among others.
