Welcome to the Balancer

The only BS you’ll get from me is a Balance Sheet

I am Nic Cooper and I am The Balancer. Why choose The Balancer?

Attention to Detail

You know the phrases “Look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves” and “The Devil’s in the detail”? Well that’s what we’re good at. I and my team of bookkeepers make sure that your bank account is reconciled, your accounts are correctly coded, that you are claiming all you can if you are VAT registered and that all deadlines are met, so you can be assured that we are looking after the numbers for you.

Reality Check Your Numbers

Do you know what your breakeven point is or what your margin of safety is? Do you know what the numbers in your accounts actually mean and what they are telling you? I use my 30 years’ of experience of working in businesses as their accountant and my 8 years’ experience of my own business to advise you what your business numbers are telling you, areas for improvement as well as a pat on the back.

Reduce your Tax burden

Nobody likes paying tax and we’d all like to pay less if we could, right? I can advise you on the most tax efficient way of paying yourself, what you could be claiming as costs against your business and how to best utilise any spare cash you have in your business.


There is no office for The Balancer because there doesn’t need to be. I use Xero or other cloud based accounting systems, Zoom and all the bookkeepers work remotely, so there’s no need for one. So, that’s no rental, no utility costs etc, so I don’t have to pass those on to my clients – that’s you, hopefully. You get the best of both Worlds – experience and at an affordable cost. Have a look at my packages page and you’ll see what I mean.
