To say that January 31 is a red letter day for accountants may be the understatement of the century. As any small business owner knows, the last day in January is also the last day for submitting completed tax returns, and therefore quite an important one for us at CEJ.
After getting all of our clients’ returns in on time, we felt some kind of celebration was in order. So what did we do? Obvious. We went into Liverpool and locked ourselves in a room. No, really. We actually did go into Liverpool and we actually did get locked in a room.
It was, however, far more exciting than you might imagine. Breakout Liverpool – the venue for our February 1 celebration – bills itself as the city’s “number one live escape room game” and, we can report, it’s a whole heap of fun.
After being locked in a smallish room (we’d steer clear if you’re claustrophobic), we were challenged to solve a succession of puzzles and clues in the space of an hour, all presented in a hugely imaginative way by the Breakout team.
We got out with two and half minutes to spare, which we were feeling rather smug about until a member of staff told Jo it was “about average”.
There’s a website here if you fancy giving it a go or finding out why it’s become the number one activity on TripAdvisor.
As ever, if you have any questions about any accountancy matters (much as we’d love to talk about Breakout, you might be better contacting them for that), then don’t hesitate to get in touch: email Jo (firstname.lastname@example.org), Ben (email@example.com) or Peter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
