It is very easy in business, as in life, to get absorbed in the day-to-day running and to forget to take that step back once in a while, and consider, heaven forbid, how you, or your business would cope if the unexpected happened.
I hate to leave things to the last minute, so was very pleased when I was able to file the final tax returns of this season 3 days before the deadline! It’s so important to file those returns on time as there are severe penalties for filing late, even if you have no tax to pay.
However, to lighten the mood, I came across the following list of most unlikely excuses for filing late, provided by our dear friends at HMRC. They do have a sense of humour after all! So, to show that tax is not all dull and boring, I thought I’d share this with you! (And I particularly like #10!)
