Meow, Meow – Did The Accountant Steal?

Cats go “meow meow,” but what do they say when accountants steal from them? We are not talking about your average household cat, we are talking about…

The upcoming “CATS” film.

I’m assuming it is based on the popular theatre production of the same name? Well, anyway, it is a production company called Monumental Pictures who are attempting to bring Cats to the big screen, and like any film production company they need some good accountants to balance the books.

Fast forward to right now and Monumental Pictures have taken one of their accountants to court and accused him of stealing £230,000.

“Meow, Meow,” I’m sure the cat didn’t like that, at all.

According to the prosecution this accountant put 230 grand in his pocket between April 2016 and October 2018.

How was this even possible, you might be wondering?

It’s because Monumental Pictures have different bank accounts for each production, and because they are involved in numerous TV and film productions then it is easy to get distracted and not watch every penny in every account.

They claim this accountant took money out of their bank account and put it into his own bank account. Not only was this stealing, but it was also a major blow to the production of CATS, the movie.

“Meow, meow,” said the cat with a sad face.

At this point we must say that this is an ongoing court case and everything said in this blog post is simply alleged and nothing has been proven in a court of law.

“Innocent until proven guilty,” we say.

And what does the cat say? “Meow, meow, meow, meow….” the cat agrees with us.

So the accountant who is accused…he is currently released on bail until the final court hearing where a judge will decide innocent or guilty and prison or no prison.

And then maybe CATS can finally get produced and we can all just enjoy it instead of reading about it.

If you are a film production company and you want a trustworthy accountant then have you ever tried a contractor accountant?

“Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow…”
