Grant Cooper BBus CPA RCA
Director of Cooper Audit and Accounting Pty Ltd

I have 16 years of experience in a wide variety of audit roles and external financial reporting and previous to this, I spent 10 years in banking and finance.

My experience in Audit and Accounting services commenced in August 2000 and I have functioned in the role of Audit Manager since 2003 (Senior Audit Manager from 2012 to 2015). I specialise in Audit and other Assurance Services and Statutory Financial Reporting. The audit process includes conducting assessments of the operating effectiveness of internal controls. These assessments regularly progress to the formulation of recommendations for suggested improvements in internal controls, which are then formally reported to the respective Committees, Boards of Directors and Audit Committees. Such recommendations also include the interpretation and application of Australian Accounting Standards that apply when preparing general purpose and special purpose financial reports.

Other experience includes auditing in the finance sector, including 9 years as an external auditor of ADIs and many years of experience auditing solicitor debenture issuing companies. In addition, I have 10 years of experience in banking and finance, including 3 years in Business Banking in the Swan Hill district, experience that involved direct exposure to such agricultural enterprises as dryland cereal cropping, livestock husbandry, dairy farming, stone fruit orchards, citrus orchards and viticulture.

I have been the manager responsible for many audits conducted throughout Ballarat and Western Victoria during the past 12 years. I have worked closely with For-Profit and Not-for-Profit audit clients, including private companies, companies limited by guarantee, co-operatives and incorporated associations, from many industries including education (both public and private schools), manufacturing, retail, community organisations, aged care, finance and investment, sporting clubs, gaming venues and trust account audits. I have also been an independent committee member of the Ballarat Health Services Audit Committee since 2008.

Angeline Cooper
Office Manager of Cooper Audit and Accounting Pty Ltd

My career has predominantly been in reception and administration roles, leveraging upon my formal education where I graduated from Loreto Commercial College, but I have also proven to be adaptable and have spent a significant time working in real estate property management, retail sales and a number of other different roles.
In the most recent five years I have performed the role of Office Manager at a prominent manufacturing business (consisting of two companies) located in Ballarat until I recently commenced working full time with Cooper Audit and Accounting. My list of duties in recent years as Office Manager were many and varied but they included maintaining the financial records on MYOB (including processing sales invoices, expenditure/suppliers, payroll and related items, eg. superannuation, managing the collection of outstanding accounts receivable, banking, etc.) along with the daily operation and customer service on behalf of two companies.
Working full time with Cooper Audit and Accounting offers a healthy and flexible environment that stimulates productivity for our business. Our dedication as a team is a reflection of our attitude towards promoting the best interests of our clients, inherent in our desire to strive for further stability and success. Our respect for our clients is respect often given in return. Cooper Audit and Accounting also supports my charity work in allowing me time to attend public engagements as a speaker representing Beyondblue. Our family business embraces my personal lifestyle including a book, music interests and a film project.
