Geoffrey Cox

Corporate and Charity Services Partner

Geoffrey is a specialist Corporate Reporting partner and his client portfolio includes a wide range of substantial SME and owner-managed businesses as well as charities and not for profit organisations.



I joined Dafferns in 1995 as a graduate trainee and became a partner in 2005. I am responsible for the firm’s audit compliance and internal controls and for a substantial client portfolio ranging from high potential growth owner managed businesses to £75m plus turnover groups. My strength lies in my great technical ability whilst being able to explain complex matters in easy to understand terms for clients, highlighting practical implications so that clients can make a ‘more informed’ decision.


  • Audit, assurance, and accounts
  • Corporate reporting & FRS 102

  • Charities and not for profit
  • Audit of grant claims
  • Company secretarial – statutory records

Hobbies and interests

I enjoy holidaying in the remote regions of the Scottish Highlands, but not mountaineering (far too much physical exercise!) and enjoy birdwatching.
