Accounting for break-ups

Learjet When TS thinks of accountants involved in fierce arguments, it’s usually a situation where the FD has just told the boss that the company can’t afford to buy a Learjet for them to attend that year-long business conference in the Bahamas.

In fact, it turns out that many are involved in far more volatile debates. For the modern accountant is just as important as a lawyer when it comes to divorce.

This wonderful news emerged, unusually, at the ICAEW’s annual farming and rural business group conference where solicitor Isobel Robinson stressed the importance of collating financial information to help solicitors ‘develop a strategy for managing divorce settlements’.

Ah well, at least the executives know who to turn to when caught with the secretary at exotic conferences, Learjet or not.
