Shipleys is a founding member of AGN International, a global association of separate and independent accounting and advisory businesses.  We are also active members of AGN UK & Ireland and support its nationwide service helping SMEs, mid-sized businesses, high net worth families and trusts across the UK and Ireland.

The mission of AGN is to enable its members to support businesses and individuals with high standards, straight-forward and practical business advice and local commercial know-how, wherever the need arises worldwide.

Our AGN membership gives us direct access to such advice globally, within a structure of trusted relationships that is designed to deliver high standards at an affordable cost; an antidote to the complexity and cost of some global providers.

AGN International is composed of 5 regions. Within each region and worldwide, member firms collaborate to meet clients’ needs, and improve client service by understanding of each other’s markets and sharing experience and knowledge.

Shipleys is one of approximately 200 member firms operating in about 450 offices around the world, providing our clients with support from11,000 partners and staff in almost 100 countries.

We have enjoyed a long established record of active involvement with AGN. Ben Bidnell is Shipleys’ main contact point for other AGN firms. Ben is the Chair of The International Business Development Committee; Chair of The EMEA Business Development Committee; and a Member of The EMEA Board of Directors.

David Hartles, Mike Luckett and VAT specialist, Nancy Cruickshanks, are other key contacts for AGN firms. Mike is a member of the Members’ Development Committee.
