Our History

Hill Lillis - 15 years as an Accountancy FirmThe beginning

The Practice started many moons ago as Overton & Salt, and has evolved along the way to Cooke Overton and Salt, and then to Hill & Company, when Ian Hill took over the business. Sadly, Ian passed away in 2001 and Helen Lillis, the then Tax Manager of the practice, took control of part of the business and changed its name to Hill Lillis and Company. Throughout the years, our office has remained in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, offering a terrific base to serve businesses and individuals in the immediate area and beyond.

Fully qualified tax specialists and accountants

CIOT and ATTThe Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) is the leading professional body in the United Kingdom concerned solely with taxation. The Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) is the leading professional body for those providing tax compliance services and related activities in the UK.

Members of these organisations are qualified by examination and practical experience and are required to maintain their technical knowledge with CPD.

Helen qualified with the AAT in 1992 and the CIOT in 1994 and is on their registers as a member in practice, giving the clients the assurance of the standards and ethics being applied to her work.

Other staff at Hill Lillis hold qualifications with the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) and STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) or where relevant are working towards qualifications.

Looking to the future

Our intention over the coming years is to encourage our clients to use Hill Lillis & Company as a "one stop shop" for all business and tax related issues. Many of our clients already view us more of a Business Associate, rather than the Archetypal Accountant. We will continue to be a modern, dynamic firm, looking to create new services and opportunities to the benefit of our client base.
