We continue our series on the accounting implications of the war in Ukraine with a discussion of the indirect impacts of the conflict.
In the last of our four-episode series covering the implications of the war in Ukraine, we focus on accounting considerations for indirect impacts of the conflict, such as those related to customers.
In this episode, Heather Horn was joined by Angela Fergason and Bret Dooley, partners in PwC’s National Office, to discuss some of the specific, but indirect, accounting topics and questions companies should consider.
