Can you believe this?

Here is the UK Companies House list of the most bizarre excuses for late accounts:

  1. Goats ate my accounts
  2. I found my wife in the bath with my accountant
  3. Pirates stole my accounts
  4. We delivered the accounts to the betting office next door to Companies House
  5. A volcano erupted and prevented me from filing
  6. Slugs ate my accounts
  7. It was Valentine’s Day
  8. My company was more successful than I thought that it would be, so I was too busy to file

HMRC top late tax return clunker: “I couldn’t file my return on time as my wife has been seeing aliens and won’t let me enter the house.”

Rivalling that excuse was ‘my ex-wife left my tax return upstairs, but I suffer from vertigo and can’t go upstairs to retrieve it’.
