Case Studies: How we're working with our clients

Making a more sustainable world

World Energy & Meteorology Council

We were expanding and on the verge of becoming a larger organisation than before, and Argents’ multi-decade experience with other charities and non-profit organisations was a huge draw for us.

Argents’ approach has been friendly, helpful and professional. They provided valuable support that took away some of the pressure that came with the intricacies of UK and overseas financial systems. 'They made us feel welcome, reassured and confident in our financial processes, and we look forward to working with them in the future.'

What do the WEMC do?

The World Energy and Meteorology Council are an international organisation based at the U.E.A. Their aim is to promote and enhance interaction between the global energy industry and the weather, climate and broader environmental sciences community.

WEMC host the biennial International Conference of Energy and Meteorology (ICEM) – a global event which aims to provide meteorologists and energy industry specialists with a unique platform to share their expertise and ideas. The focus of the event is on collaboration, and the target is a transformed, inclusive energy system.

Aside from this unique event, data-led projects are at the core of WEMC’s work. They are currently working on three projects focussing on how meteorology connects with, and even impacts the climate in different ways. For more information, please visit their projects page.

 

It's gone swimmingly

Christal Seas Scuba Ltd

Argents have been our accountant for many years now and have always been great - always available, helpful and patient when answering our questions.  We are lucky to have a great company looking after that side of the business so we know that everything is taken care off and prepared properly.

About Christal Seas Scuba

Christal Seas Scuba have been training divers, and supplying scuba diving and snorkelling equipment, in Norwich for over 20 years.   What started as a hobby grew into a full time passion and career and owners Polly & Chris Wake have dived and worked all over the world.  They now train people to scuba dive and run dive holidays for groups from all over Norfolk from their dive centre in Norwich.   

The dive centre and shop on Whiffler road in Norwich sells the full range of scuba and snorkelling equipment to meet everyone's needs and has its own on-site swimming pool which is available for children's scuba and snorkelling parties as well as scuba diving classes.   The pool is also available for private hire for swimming which is really popular with family or friend groups.

Transformed Procedures

Chaplin Group of Companies

Argents started working with us over 20 years ago, on our 5000 acres of in-hand agricultural land. Our land is spread over 5 units from Kelso to Cambridge and is therefore 5 times more complicated than a ring fence outfit. 20 years ago we had poor systems, poor information and almost no advice being given from our previous London based accountants. Argents slashed our accountancy costs and transformed our procedures. Over the last 10 years we have moved away from the 5 accountancy firms we had been using and Argents are now responsible for our hotel group, our commercial property,  our property development group, and our research and technology investment arm. 

Argents have also overseen and advised on the formation and growth of Triton Seed drills which has been invaluable as the business has grown rapidly bringing in several new partners that might have complicated our systems without Argents foresight.

Argents provide all accounting services and financial advice to our entire group of companies.  I would recommend Argents to all companies and individuals who require cutting edge, front running advice. Argents identify the requirement, install the software and then attach a bespoke Argents manager to deal with the specific customer 24/7 as required. 

All the right signs

Agency Express

We have been using Argents Chartered Accountants for over 20 years, for our annual audit, general accountancy and taxation. They have advised and supported our medium and long-term strategic planning too. Whilst providing reassurance that we're compliant with current and forthcoming regulations.  In my experience, Argents provide a reliable, cost-effective service and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

What do they do?

Testimonials

From helping me set up a company to managing my VAT/Corporation tax submissions, has enabled me to grow my business and provide reassurance and advice along the way. The epitome of an approachable expert and equally important, has shown enormous patience over the years as I ask the same questions about VAT every 3 months! I consider them as a trusted adviser and would happily recommend.
- One Last Thing
Finding an accounting firm who understood, and had first-hand experience dealing with all the intricacies of worldwide VAT and taxation, was a must for us. The entire Argents’ team have been friendly, helpful and professional every step of the way, and we look forward to working with them as we grow and expand with further projects.

I’ve known and used Grahame’s services for 20+ years and always found his advice to be pertinent and beneficial on both a personal and commercial level.

Thank you for looking after our tax affairs for the year 2018/19. As always, the care you take with our tax affairs is much appreciated.
- Rosemary S
I have used them ever since they set up in Norwich for my personal affairs. My company Signs Express has been with them likewise. Although i sold on to the management team, they are still there. I have suggested them to several others both private and corporate and they are all still there. Evidence of service of high quality at a fair price.

Stewart supports my business through the preparation and submission of both my corporation and personal tax services. He is highly knowledgeable and efficient, always willing to offer ad-hoc advice and guidance. I would highly recommend Stewart to help with your accounting needs/QuickBooks adviser. He is great at making the complexity of tax and VAT simple to understand which is important to me.
