Booze is no excuse. I am shocked by the behaviour.
On a lighter note in my youth when very junior we were counselled by or older and wiser colleguaes that if worse for the wear due to booze it was gentlemanly to quietly pass out behind the sofa so the party would not be disturbed by any unruly behaviour.

With Covid probably true if in the Arts

I do get the impression its again typical conservative accountants not wanting change.
I do agree desktop is better for larger complicated clients but for the smaller ones QBO is more than adequate and as good as Xero. Both have limitations.
If a client is "awful at bookkeeping" I would suggest its the client not the software. With AI in both QBO and Xero and with bankfeeds there is no reason to "only use it for VAT return producing". Again its the client who cant be bothered to set-up bankfeeds, match and add the entries to the right categories etc. etc. Its not difficult folks.
I will not comment on Xero or QB support as I rarely need to use them or on QB poor communication skills.
Come on lets get into the 21st century.

Try working out what QB does with VAT and PAYE processing. It works for developers but not accountants. Certainly normal bookkeeping processes are ignored.
At YE spend time fixing the automatic postings which go to the oddest places.
Sage is the only one I see that applies proper processing for Payroll and VAT. Pity they don't have a decent cloud platform

He says he was charged. Sorry you were CONVICTED!!!
I have no pity with men who beat, presumably, women.
Far too lenient IMHO

Hate the confusion between avoidance and evasion.
To HMRC ANY attempts at reducing tax is an "avoidance scheme" at best or "evasion" when they feel less charitable.

Ah so now we know the real reasons. Its the penalties! A lucrative income stream especially for the digital tax challenged which most likely will be a lot if turnover is kept at £10k.
Feel really sorry for the elderly with their little pension pots now becoming a digital nightmare.
#3 is a joke right? With the garbage going in we are going to get decisions made on garbage. Wonderful!

So the newspapers and some news channels froth at the mouth calling it (illegal) tax evasion when its (legal) normal tax avoidance. I cannot recall which judge who said there is no reason why you should allow the taxman to take a shovel to your money (probably got the wording wrong).
However it does show that despite the wishful thinking of the left its not the rich who will pay the tax (and level the country up using the latest buzzword) but us poor middle income sods and worse the very poor. Lets hike up the NI a bit more.
