This session will look into how accountants can understand supply chain and inflation and how these impact the performance on businesses. The first part of the session will focus on a detailed analysis of past inflation data and on recent developments within the global context that are impacting both the supply chain and inflation today and in the future.
The second part of the session will be more practical and will build on the first part of the session. During this part, conclusions will be derived on the inflation in the Maltese economy in recent years as well as present a clearer vision of where inflation is heading in the coming months and years. Also, we will look at what policy makers are doing to mitigate against Supply Chain Issues.
The final part of the session will focus on the role of the accountant in present times and how the accountant can prepare for what’s to come in the near future. Business owners/self-employed will also find this session valuable as they would be better informed in their day-to-day decision making particularly in current times were supply chain and price stability are an issue.

Topics on the agenda

  • Current economic context and why do we have supply chain issues.
  • What are the supply chain issues.
  • What is driving up inflation.
  • How long are we likely to see inflation at such a high rate.
  • What can an accountant do to mitigate against the risks of inflation and supply chain issues.

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

Accountants are usually the first port of call for most business owners when they need to evaluate the feasibility of a project/product or to get general business advice. However, accountants might not have the time to focus on what is happening in the global context and what is putting pressure on supply chain and inflation. Therefore, this session will serve as a good background for members to understand what is happening around us and what we as accountants can do to advice our clients/companies we work for, better.

Target Audience

  • Accountants and prospective accountants who work mainly on management accounts
  • Accountants and prospective accountants in general
  • Business advisors
  • Business owners and self-employed persons
