Walking at lunchtime & recharging our batteries!

By | Blog | No Comments

Autumn is often not the best time of year to try and motivate ourselves to get outside. The nights are drawing in, theDrummond Laurie Chartered Accountants temperature drops, we live in Scotland and so it’s  often raining and windy!

A few months ago, a few of us started a lunchtime walk and we’ve decided that for the month of November we will have a walking challenge.  We are hoping that this keeps us motivated and active – even when it’s raining!

Walking can bring us lots of benefits including reduced risk of a variety of diseases and can also lead to improved mental health and well being.

So far, it’s been easy to fit into our daily routine and perhaps one of the best things is just having a bit of fun and banter together as we walk.  We’ll keep you updated, as you know we’re a competitive bunch!


Pirates Stole my Accounts…and more excuses

Drummond Laurie Chartered Accountants

Every year companies house receive unusual excuses from directors who fail to file their company accounts on time, here’s a few of them:


“goats ate my accounts”

“I found my wife in the bath with my accountant”

“we delivered the accounts to the betting office next door to Companies House”

“a volcano erupted and prevented me from filing”

“slugs ate my accounts”

“it was Valentine’s Day”

The companies that gave these excuses received a late filing penalty and their appeals were not surprisingly unsuccessful.  Companies and directors must be aware of their responsibility to file accounts with Companies House.

This can all be avoided by making sure that you have an advisor who will take care of this for you.  Just ask us how, for more details please contact us on 01324 441280 or email
