We can’t believe it but, Cooper Accounting Limited is officially one!
The beginning of lockdown saw our Managing Director, Samantha Stokes starting out as a sole trader. Despite the given circumstances that many businesses faced at this time, she managed to go from strength to strength, providing support for businesses who were struggling with their accounts during the pandemic. Assisting with tax returns, bookkeeping, applications for grants and other Covid related Government initiatives, the business grew.
In this short amount of time, the business has seen many changes and is now, Cooper Accounting Limited and we are even more excited for what the future holds.
We of course can’t celebrate Cooper Accounting’s birthday without the mention of the man himself (or dog in our case). Cooper is Samantha’s trusty Golden Retriever and has been by her side since she founded the business. He is full of energy and can be quite mischievous when he wants to be but, we love him even more for it. His cute face lights up any room he goes into, not to mention he gives the best cuddles. The Cooper Accounting team and Samantha would be lost without him.
Part of our expansion at Cooper Accounting Limited has been our move to a lovely mill office at Kings Cross, Halifax. We have ample space for our growing number of staff and it also accommodates multiple offices for private meetings with clients. Whether we are meeting them for the first time or catching up with long standing customers, it is a great space to work, meet and catch-up.
The Cooper Accounting team are also growing rapidly and we are always on the lookout for new talent to come onboard and help the business grow. It is great to have like-minded professionals working together so that we can help our customers with anything when it comes to their business accounts.
At Cooper Accounting, our aim is to provide 1st class service in terms of producing accurate accounts, providing sound business and tax advice and above all aim to respond to clients emails and phone calls quickly. We understand that business accounts can be confusing and daunting, that’s why we are here to make the process as smooth and straightforward as possible.
Starting a new business, particularly in the midst of the pandemic is always a risk. But, it is safe to say that as the business continues to grow, it is a decision that our Managing Director, Samantha has never looked back on. Being able to help local, West Yorkshire businesses and build genuine connections is what keeps us all going.
We now have a large and, continuously growing portfolio of clients and whilst we specialise in construction, we still have a large variety of clients from a range of sectors and professions including; hairdressers, plant nurseries, furniture manufacturers, maintenance engineers, builders, personal trainers, gym owners, mechanics and more.
We have a genuine desire to help businesses grow and this is what our customers love.
“I would recommend Cooper Accounting to anyone looking for a great, reliable accounting service. Whether self-employed like myself or bigger organisations, they can and will cater for all needs. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”
“We contacted Samantha at Cooper Accounting a few months ago when we needed a lot of help with our books (we had no idea what we were doing). She was brilliant with us. She is very professional, friendly, and is always there if you ever need any advice. She is extremely responsive over email and phone which is helpful with those last minute questions! I would highly recommend this company to anybody requiring these services.”
“As a start-up business owner with limited experience in terms of accounts, finding an accountant to walk me through the process was something I considered highly important. I fortunately found Cooper Accounting and what a fantastic service they have provided.
Sam was highly responsive, patient when answering the questions I had regarding the process and then, at the end of the tax year, provided a prompt, professional and quality service to complete my tax return in good time.
There’s no doubt that I will continue to use Cooper Accounting going forward and would highly recommend them to any business/individual.”
Our goals for the future
We can’t wait to see the business grow over the coming months as we welcome more customers and see the team expand. Our goal is to onboard more team members to the business in the coming year to support our growing customer base. We have had a really healthy financial year and have plans in place to see this double in the next twelve months.
At present, we have over 140 clients with new, potential customers reaching out to us every week, mainly from referrals. We are so pleased that our existing clients are happy with the service that we provide and that they give us great recommendations so that we can continue to support more businesses.
If you are struggling with your accounts and need some help or advice, please don’t hesitate to reach out, we are more than happy to help.
