As a small business and small team, it is critical to us that our accountants are understanding and responsive to our needs. In our relationship with Mark at Argents we have certainly found that these requirements have been met. I believe the relationship goes beyond a straight forward accountancy service and Mark is really interested in our business and plans for the future. It is always refreshing to know that we will get honest advice and it is really useful to have an independent voice who has witnessed the path of our company. Mark has been really helpful in guiding us through some difficult times and it is then that you realise the whole package that is on offer.
Having started our business 8 years ago with one high street Art Gallery we have now expanded and are on the verge of opening our sixth. Right from the start Argents were there to provide essential 'business startup' advice and help right through to today tackling a multitude of other issues associated with a more mature small business. All the team at Argents are extremely approachable and we have not faulted any of the advice we have been given. It is a testament to any company when existing clients provide referrals and having been so impressed with the service we have received I have been delighted to recommend Argents to colleagues and friends who have needed their help.
When we set up Ark Creative (publishing services) in 2003, Argents were highly recommended to us by a fellow Norwich creative agency. We were delighted at how approachable and efficient Mark and the team at Argents were (and continue to be), helping us sort out the financial nuts and bolts so that we could concentrate on our clients and the creative work in hand. They are always available on the end of the phone to offer knowledgeable advice and ideas on dealing with the challenges of running a small business. I would not fail to recommend them.
Argents have been acting as accountants for Key Safety Solutions Ltd for over three years. They have always provided an excellent service and have given us piece of mind that we have everything covered by providing proactive advice and assistance. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services and we hope to keep our relationship with Argents for the many years to come.
Argents have been providing Insight with payroll and accountancy support and advice for many years now. During this time, we have grown the business into a group of companies which includes: Insight Financial Associates, Insight Mortgage Solutions, Property Investor Partnership and Foresight Estate Planning and Will Writing and I am pleased to say that Argents looks after all of our businesses. I am so pleased with Argent’s advice and service over the years, so much so, I have confidently referred my valued clients to them. As my business has grown, I have found Argents always to be efficient and responsive. I look forward to our working relationship continuing in the coming years.
We farm over 2000 acres and Argents support us with accountancy, taxation and business advice, in particular Grahame has acted for the business for over 20 years. Their specialist agricultural knowledge means we are assured we are dealing with professional people who understand our business. We like their proactive approach and their innovative style, providing us with the assistance we need to grow our business.

We set ourselves up in partnership as Chartered Surveyors at the start of 2002. We were looking for a firm of accountants in Norwich and were ably assisted by Mark and Jon who provided straight forward advice on our accounts, record keeping and taxation. We looked for an accountant who would deal with our work efficiently, answer our concerns over tax and related matters and consider longer term strategy issues for us. We have maintained a close relationship with Argents and have found the advice we have been given invaluable during these early years of our business.
We have used Grahame and Mark and their team for a number of years and have found them knowledgeable, responsive and approachable. They have been able to help with all the obvious parts of their accounting role, as well as running our payroll and providing advice and support with tax inspections and planning.
We were introduced to Argents when our previous accountant retired due to ill health. They took on our business midway through our financial year and completed our accounts well within the required timescale. As a media training company based in Norwich, we travel throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific region training anyone who may be faced with media enquiries during a major incident. We needed advice with tax related issues when working outside the EU and Argents ensured that we were not over paying when we engaged in overseas contracts. We were impressed by the speed and professionalism shown and their willingness to adapt to our way of record keeping. After 10 years with our previous accountant, we had become rather set in our ways! Working with Mark Johnstone has been a pleasure and he has proved to be invaluable in assisting us with our overseas office plans. Media Answers would recommend Argents to any business who is looking for a personal and progressive service from an accountancy firm based in Norwich and look forward to a long and successful business relationship with them.
