“I would thoroughly recommend their services”
Apeks Marine Equipment Ltd
Apeks Marine Equipment Ltd are a manufacturer of Diving Equipment and associated products with a vertically integrated approach to manufacturing; unique in our industry.
We have been growing our business for 45 years and are part of a large global diving group since 1997.
Hardings Chartered Accountants have been our preferred Financial Consultant, Tax and Accounting advisors since the merger with the Melia Partnership some years ago. The Melia Partnership looked after our often complex and time critical needs for over 25 years and we were delighted when we had the opportunity to continue to be working with the same great team and ethos under Hardings Chartered Accountants.
Over the many years of drastic growth, going from 5 employees working in a private garage to a global company with 160 employees selling our products worldwide, our needs for financial support and advice has changed. We have therefore experienced pretty much most of the services that Hardings Chartered Accountants/Melia Partnership offer.
They have been our Bookkeepers, Company Accountants, Company Secretary, Auditors, Tax Consultants and General Business Advisors, including Financing and Banking advice, Business growth strategy, Grant options, Share schemes, Payroll support and Statutory compliance work. A much-valued true all-round business partner.
We have always found all the staff very customer service orientated, with a friendly, professional, knowledgeable and excellent approach. No matter how short the deadline or how random the enquiry, the team at Hardings Chartered Accountants always ensure the task is dealt with by the correct person and in a fast supportive manner.
Their interest in really understanding our business, which can often be quite complex with a need to manage conflicting priorities has been invaluable over the many years of our business relationship. I would thoroughly recommend their services.
