Based on this analysis, suggestions for a company planning to implement a system of inflation accounting are developed.

It is advisable to have an implementation plan detailing the timing of initiating the exercise, allocation of key tasks between Corporate office and the Units, and a scheme for monitoring the progress of implementation. Though the literature on the theory and methods of inflation accounting is mounting, there is dearth of discussion on the problems faced and experience gained by companies that have attempted to implement one of the methods suggested in the literature.
