Are Some Accountants Cashing In On The Coronavirus Pandemic?

Coronavirus empties U.S. corporate offices creating demand for virtual accountants

The onslaught of COVID-19 is causing thousands of U.S. corporations to go “virtual” to maintain their operations. The inevitability of widespread contagion fueled by people working in close proximity is resulting in entire corporate departments being furloughed. Vital operations such as accounting and bookkeeping functions are now being outsourced to outside accounting firms to manage remotely.

Some accountants who provide virtual accounting services are already cashing in on the rush by thousands of companies replacing their in-house accounting departments with private accounting firms., the U.S. accounting industry’s leading accountancy referral service, has already begun helping accountants make the transition to offering virtual accounting services. The Company began airing TV commercials earlier this year on such networks as CNN and Fox News touting the financial benefits that companies experience when they outsource their bookkeeping and accounting.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic the proposition of outsourcing has suddenly become a survival strategy for thousands of business owners. “We are experiencing a deluge of outsourced and virtual accounting engagements from companies all across the country that are being impacted by the coronavirus pandemic,” says Johanna Laurent, President of   “Businesses still need to function from an accounting perspective even in a pandemic, which means they must outsource many of the things they were previously doing in-house including their daily accounting and bookkeeping functions,” explains Laurent. “Therein lies a huge opportunity for outside accounting firms that can fill the void left by disbanded in-house accounting departments,” she adds.
