This made us smile…here are Companies House list of the most bizarre excuses for late filed 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
