Get up to date

Many clients have a need for a “catch-up” project to get their books and accounts up to date. We will agree with you a plan to complete the project at the outset and agree a fixed price.

Easy Switch to Lilley & Co

With our easy switch service we will contact your outgoing accountant and do all that’s necessary for a seamless transition. As a client you don’t need to do anything but continue to run your business whilst we sort out the details.


We make the most of technology and use either Quick books online or Xero accounting packages to maximise efficiency. We can also show you how to process your receipts and invoices easily with the use of a smartphone. Imagine that? No more disorganised bags of receipts and invoices to worry about.

We can advise on the best software package to suit your business, complete the setup and provide the initial training




Trudi Lilley (ACMA, CGMA) – Founder Director

Lilley and Co was founded with a clear vision to provide first class financial support at an affordable cost to small and medium sized businesses.

Trudi feels it is very important to take a commercial approach to accountancy, never to just churn out numbers but always to question how the results could be better, what could be done to improve product margins, reduce costs and increase cash flow.

Trudi spends her spare time with her family and 3 dogs. She enjoys motor-homing and finding new places to visit.

Lilley & Co provided an excellent service to us. As a start-up business they were exactly what we needed – responsive, knowledgeable and professional. On top of that, they also helped to skill up our own staff, creating lasting value in the organisation. We’re very grateful for all they’ve done for us, and would recommend them highly.

We were more than happy with your work and assistance and would be happy to use you again next year.

We have already started handing out your name in recommendation.

I just wanted to say that it has been a pleasure to work with you and that I finally feel that we are getting to a much better place accounts wise. This has been a source of great stress for me for months as I was struggling to find the right people on top of my capabilities in this department being limited. I feel the work you have done to date has been very very good.

You have helped us make a huge amount of progress, you ask all the right questions, look into everything for which I am hugely grateful.
