About us

About the company

Operating from our offices in Harrow, our aim at Hill Wooldridge & Co is to provide our wide-ranging client base with friendly, professional and cost-effective service with the close involvement of a partner.

The firm was founded over 80 years ago and we remain proud of its history and reputation. We remain independent and believe in the quality and range of service that can be provided by a small practice.

We act for clients requiring services ranging from simple tax returns to audits of large limited companies. We are particularly proud to be auditors of an AIM-listed plc and believe that this shows the high level of service that we are able to provide. We work to establish close relationships with our clients.

This enables us to better understand their businesses and needs and forms the basis for a good working relationship. A significant number of our clients have been with us for many years and much of our new work is received from client referrals.

We make use of the latest technology and training in ensuring that both our systems and staff are up to date and can provide you with the highest level of service.


Hill Wooldridge & Company was founded in 1928 by J M Hill and W E Wooldridge with the merger of their two sole practices. With them Mr Hill brought his articled clerk J C Heath and Mr Wooldridge his articled clerk and younger brother Norman Wooldridge.

Originally the offices were situated in the city until another was established in Harrow during the mid-thirties.

The city office was closed in the early 1960s with the work being transferred to the existing Harrow office and a new one in Brentwood, Essex.


Continuity from its foundation to the present time has been maintained by one of the present partners John Soughton, being appointed a partner in March 1963 on the day that W Wooldridge, the founding partner, retired.

Apart from the founding and the present partners, there have only been four other partners in what will shortly be a 90 year history.
