More than accountancy

While accountancy is our prime activity, we do more than simply make sure the figures add up. Because not every firm has a dedicated finance department, we also provide a wide range of support services that cover everything from setting up a business and bookkeeping, to advice on sourcing funding. Leave us to look after the finances, and you can be 100% focused on your business.

Freedom to focus on business

Our payroll service is both cost-effective and completely confidential. We calculate PAYE, NI contributions, SMP and SSP if applicable, providing pay-slips and summary printouts, plus, of course, compliance with the auto enrolment legislation.

We can also help with Year-end forms P60 and P11D, remuneration packages, share options and contracts of employment. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Flexible Options

Our Bookkeeping services mean you can meet your statutory obligations to summarise income and expenditure in an agreed format. Whether you simply need basic guidance or a full-blown software solution, we offer flexible and effective options that save you time, money and a few headaches. VAT rules can be a veritable minefield, but we can help guide you safely through it. Our basic 'health check' ensures you're complying with statutory requirements and keeping proper records. Plus, our in-depth knowledge can bring many unforeseen benefits to your business.

Negotiations & Sourcing Finance

We can advise on the selection of lenders, broker introductions, and assist with the negotiation of terms, arrangement fees and interest rates. We can also assist in sourcing asset finance, with a repayment profile that best suits your cash flow requirements. We work alongside surveyors, valuers, banks and solicitors on a regular basis.  These relationships can be invaluable to assist in us working with you to achieve your aims and goals.

Enhanced Fee Protection

It's still a tough climate out there, but we can make sure you shine. Are you ready for an investigation by HM Revenue & Customs? Although in-depth enquiries effect only a small minority of businesses, when they do, the costs can be high. To cover you, we offer an Enhanced Fee Protection Service which provides significant peace of mind for a very modest cost.

Vehicles - Hire or Purchase? Private or Company?

Our experts can steer you through the purchase or hire of vehicles, and the ongoing running costs. We’ll examine the optimum strategy for your own particular circumstances, including company v's private car, fuel payments and purchase options. The rules concerning business vehicles can, and do, change frequently. With our help, you know you’ll always be driving the best deal for your business.

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.

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 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.
