About The Balancer

Hi, I’m Nic Cooper and I am The Balancer.

Who Is The Balancer?

I have been a qualified CIMA accountant for almost 30 years and spent 29 years in the industry as an accountant for a number of businesses, both large and small and in a number of sectors. In 2013, I decided I’d had enough of working for other people and set up my own business, initially on a self-employed basis but then creating my Limited Company. I provide small businesses with help and advice on self-assessment returns, Limited Company accounts, VAT and payroll.

My Story

But enough about the business me – what about the “other” me.
During the summer months, I can be seen on a cricket field on most saturdays in a variety of weather, umpiring, now my playing days are over.
Every day (whatever the weather), I’m walking my mad springer spaniel (is it just me, or are all springer spaniels mad?!), Randall and once a week I go to a pub quiz (and sometimes we even win).
Music plays a big part in my life, either listening to BBC 6 Music, CDs or going to gigs. I’m a big James fan (24 gigs and counting), as well as Radiohead and Slow Readers Club.
Oh yes and my favourite film is The Life of Brian!

I am extremely pleased that I have the best accountant ever. Nic is so approachable and knowledgeable and patient.

As a small business owner, I recently decided to stop using a mid-sized accountancy firm in favour of Nic. My only regret is that I didn’t do it earlier! Nic is thoughtful, experienced and a safe pair of hands. Nic handles both my company and personal accounts and I wholeheartedly recommend The Balancer.

Really professional approach. Nic dealt with all my queries really quickly and helped me make decisions in regards to my business accounts. He is friendly and approachable, and very patient in dealing with questions and tricky stuff. Really excellent service, would highly recommend!
