With over 40 years experience, we provide an excellent, professional service and pride ourselves on developing long lasting relationships with all of our clients.

Building meaningful relationships with our clients is at the center of our values. Each individual, business or charity faces their own specific issues. By taking the time to understand these issues we are able to tailor the services we provide to you to suit your accountancy and taxation requirements.

At Sargent & Co we are more than just number-crunchers (although we are good at this too!). We pride ourselves on the friendly, caring and approachable atmosphere in which we work with all our clients.
