Ukraine: Time for accountants to ‘play the fullest role in making sanctions work’

On LinkedIn ICAEW CEO Michael Izza has stepped up to the plate, and said: “The UN Secretary General has urged the president of #Russia to halt his invasion of #Ukraine and prevent ‘what could be the worst war since the start of the century’. This evening the UK Government, standing alongside the US and EU, has announced a further package of sanctions aimed at demonstrating to the Russian elite, the political and financial costs of their aggression. ICAEW is confident that #charteredaccountants, whether in practice or in business, will be ready and willing to play the fullest possible role in making these measures effective, and in helping companies across the economy cope with the disruption they will bring.”

Well said Michael… so what about the rest of the accountancy world?
