New Argos business account to improve purchasing processes

Argos for Business, a leading provider of merchandise to the business community, has launched the new Argos Business Account. The facility aims to streamline the purchasing processes for organisations in the public sector, SMEs and large corporates, while providing them access to purchase products via multi-channel routes.   

The new Account provides businesses access to over 90,000 Argos and Homebase products in-store or online at The Argos Business Account allows organisations to take advantage of exclusive purchasing benefits including easier VAT reclaim and extended payment terms.

The Argos Business Account offers organisations such as councils, schools, care homes and hospitals, as well as private sector companies, an exclusive and fully secure payment method, removing the need for timely and complicated expense forms. A purchase order facility is available if required, combined with weekly electronic invoicing, meaning all orders can be fully accounted for and itemised. This makes VAT reclaim far easier to coordinate.


Committed to creating products that meet customer needs, the new Argos Business Account’s payment terms have been extended to allow up to 37 days for payments. This has been put in place following customer research. The extended payment terms will help public sector, SMEs and large corporates to manage their finances more effectively.


Customers can have multiple account cards on a single account – perfect for consolidating spending across multi-site organisations, yet allowing numerous employees to have purchasing power. With a single account, businesses can maintain control over spending and credit limit. Also, payments can be made via BACS, direct debit or cheques to suit all organisations.

The free account can be used as and when needed for everything from office furniture, to kettles and laptops.

Danny Clenaghan, Argos for Business, said: “The Business Account has been created with the customer in mind. Following successful trials earlier this year, we believe we are launching an account that organisations across the UK need to help manage expenditure and ease purchase pressure points; meanwhile, the extended payment facility will help organisations to manage and control their finances and cash flow.

“The new account will lessen administrative burdens too, affording employees more time to focus on delivering their business objectives. Consolidated invoicing offers a seamless and painless way of reconciling purchases, and reclaiming VAT is also made easier as invoices are fully itemised. Purchasing responsibilities can be delegated to others in the business while control can be retained centrally under one account.”
