LCVista and COVID-19
When it comes to responding to compliance rule changes, LCVista has always been committed to adaptability with accuracy. And, today is no different. We know that you rely on our products to not only monitor compliance and deliver exceptional learning. You also rely on the LCVista team and our community to stay up to date on the ever-changing needs of the accounting CPE industry.
Except for some travel and in-person meetings, the LCVista team is 100% remote. That means, apart from some schedule changes and kids at home, our work environment and ability to keep up business remains steadfast. We understand that most companies are not as equipped, or the nature of their business makes it impossible to function remotely. Many of our customer firms are having to quickly adapt to office closures, cancelled in person meetings etc. and we are here to help in any way we can.
We continue to monitor board websites and publications for COVID-19 responses. So far, there hasn’t been any direct news released regarding CPE rules or deadlines specifically. Please contact us right away if you have heard otherwise so we can share any updates with the LCVista community and respond to any new rules that need to be accounted for.
In the meantime, there have been a few relevant articles published that may be useful for your team:
- NASBA update on Flexibility of rules as they relate to delivery method (as more firms replace group live training with virtual): https://www.nasbaregistry.org/impact-of-covid-19
- Prometric update on Exam centers temporarily closing: https://www.prometric.com/corona-virus-update
- Accounting Today has published several articles reporting on the overall impact to the industry: https://www.accountingtoday.com/search?q=covid
Additionally, thanks to the bright minds of our customers, we are working on adding limitation data to our jurisdiction reports. With increased virtual CPE consumption (self-study in particular), it will be crucial to monitor which professionals may be subject to jurisdiction limitations on delivery methods. Watch for the release notes which we will publish as soon as that feature is ready.
Finally, we understand that priorities have likely shifted during this time and work environments have changed. We are so grateful for each of you and are here to help in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to reach out to let us know how we can support you further.
With much gratitude for your business,
Your LCVista Team
