Nigel Cox


I was born in Wales in 1960 I gained an economics honours degree from the London School of Economics. I trained in the City of London and qualified as a chartered accountant in 1986. I moved from London to KPMG Birmingham and expanded my experience in audit and limited company financial reporting. My wife and I moved to Bude in 1988 just after the birth of our eldest son. We have enjoyed a great life in Cornwall and our second son was born in 1992. My specialisations are in audit, limited company planning, tax enquiries and general tax advice. My time out of the office is spent playing sport in particular football, tennis and golf. I am involved with Flexbury Methodist Church and have been a local preacher and I’m currently involved in the youth work. The Friday night youth club has been home to many youngsters in the area since 1999.
I am also a member of the Bude Rotary Club and have served in the club since 1993 as treasurer community committee chairman and president.
