From MGI Internaional with CPAAI
April 17, 2020
MGI Worldwide with CPAAI member firm RINA Accountants & Advisors held a webinar on April 7 to help clients and network members navigate the recent legislation passed by the United States Government relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some 200 people signed up for the webinar during which the MGI North America firm hosted a live Q&A. Attendees were able to have questions answered by experts in their field, hopefully helping to reduce some of the uncertainty surrounding the recent news and guidelines that have been released in the USA as a response to the crisis.
Discussion topics included:
- Changes to tax laws and rebate checks
- Unemployment and the expansion of the Family and Medical Leave Act
- Payroll issues such as employee retention credit and tax delay
- SBA and PPP Loan programs.
Tom Neff, Managing Partner at RINA, commented, “I think the webinar went very well and that’s the general tone of the feedback I’ve received. Around 200 people connected to the webinar and we got 5 new clients as a result, which I’m happy with. We will be doing a follow up soon as the laws are changing so fast here; we have a lot to add after only 1 week.”
This Q&A event was the first in a series of free forums to be hosted by RINA aimed at assisting the community in dealing with the coronavirus crisis.
