Accounting Services

Cooper Accounting was born out of a passion for supporting local business and offers a complete suite of services that runs far beyond just accounting.

Whether you’re just starting out as a sole trader, taking the next steps in your expansion or are an established operation eager to minimise your tax liability, Cooper Accounting is here to help relieve stress, cure headaches and let you get on with doing what you do best.

Founder Samantha Stokes offers an agile service that can be adapted to meet your evolving requirements, whether that’s producing year-end books or offering ongoing support on a basis that suits you.

We love nothing more than helping businesses grow and can provide support as you plot your next move, helping to ensure you are making the best decisions for yourself and your organisation.

Our services are available to businesses and traders of all sizes and are mouldable to ensure that you are getting the best possible value for money.

You may require flexible tax and admin support that doesn’t justify a full-time hire, or you could just be looking for somebody to work with your in-house personnel to boost productivity and ensure you’re making the most of the opportunities available.

Based in Calderdale and working with organisations throughout Halifax, Brighouse, Huddersfield, Bradford and beyond, Cooper Accounting understands the issues important to the local business community.

We strive to be the best ally we possibly can to the companies, partnerships and sole traders operating around us.

See below an introduction to some of the accounting services and solutions we specialise in.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat about how we can craft a solution that works for you, from help with claiming back a tax refund and setting up your Limited Company to simply filing your annual return.

Some of our happy clients

Last year my accountant gave up and I tried to do my accounts myself and had left it quite late near to the deadline. Got myself in a mess then (Samantha Stokes) at Cooper Accounting came to my rescue. She did everything in messenger for me. She was very professional and has taken me on as a client.

Sometimes things are just meant to be. Someone you had employed for 20 years gives two weeks notice, leaves the books in a mess, way behind with booking out invoices, VAT quarter due, Payroll and PAYE to sort out. Desperate for a bookkeeper AND THEN I was recommended Samantha Stokes at Cooper Accounting…WHAT A FIND!! Invoices now being sent out, money coming in quicker, old debt being chased, taxman being sorted out. Every business should have a Samantha Stokes!
