Off topic, but allowing accountants to do accountancy isn't always much
I recall the Christmas when our accountant insisted on an inventory of
the electronics repair workshop. We kept our small components in a bank
of drawers some 1.5m (around 5 feet) wide by about 1m (3 feet or so)
high. Each drawer is just over 50mm (2") by 50mm. A drawer would hold
several tens of 1/10W resistors, or some loose transistors or
capacitors, or half a dozen ICs, or... And he wanted each one counted.
And a cost given for each single item. And insisted that estimates
were unacceptable for either count or cost.
A few years later, when the company was about to be wound up, a
colleague and I bought the bank of drawers and several other items for £100.
