Economic effects of coronavirus

Since the be­gin­ning of 2020, the coro­na­vi­rus has been sprea­ding world­wide at an enor­mous speed and po­ses con­side­ra­ble chal­len­ges for both in­di­vi­dual com­pa­nies and ent­ire eco­no­mies. Sec­tors such as tou­rism and gas­tro­nomy are al­re­ady ex­pe­ri­en­cing enor­mous sa­les los­ses. Com­pa­nies de­pen­dent on supplies from ab­road are con­fron­ted with dis­rup­ti­ons in their supply chains. Ever­ywhere there is a risk of staff los­ses due to ill­ness or go­vern­ment-im­po­sed qua­ran­tine mea­su­res.

Com­pa­nies in Ger­many are also af­fec­ted. Mea­su­res are re­qui­red to pro­tect their own work­force. Supply failures and dis­rup­ti­ons in ac­cep­tance on the cu­st­omer side must be coun­tered. Con­se­quen­tial ef­fects will arise in ques­ti­ons of fi­nan­cing up to and in­clu­ding ac­coun­ting.

With our mul­ti­di­sci­pli­nary ap­proach, we can sup­port you in mas­te­ring these chal­len­ges and proac­tively take mea­su­res to cushion the eco­no­mic im­pact of the corona epi­de­mic and in­te­grate ap­pro­priate cri­sis ma­nage­ment into the com­pany's in­ter­nal pro­ces­ses.
