About Us

Mill Accountancy Ltd is owned and run by Gillian Mill FCCA and Stephanie Mill ACCA. We opened in 2011 when Gillian left a local firm to branch out on her own.

In August 2011, we moved into the Retford Enterprise Centre, then due to further expansion in March 2016 we left to set up our own office space, based on Amelia Court in Hallcroft

We have grown substantially since setting up and our 6 strong team help us cater for all our clients’ needs.

We are proud of the fact that 90% of our new clients come to us following recommendations from existing clients. We hope to be able to continue this growth with our 3 year plan whilst continuing to provide tailored and friendly business support.

Mill Accountancy Ltd was established on the values of any good service organisation; the customer comes first. We specialise in creating personalised and easy to understand financial remedies for everyone. Whether you’re a person looking for a bit of advice or a company considering your options we are here for you.

We aim to always provide an accurate and reliable service for all our customers. A friendly voice at the end of the phone when you have a query and a professional approach to the headache of statutory filing and compliance which everyone must battle when dealing with finances.

Rosie is a Pointer X. She was adopted by Steph and her husband in 2013 and has loved living the high life ever since. She worked very hard in her career and now holds the role of office receptionist, usually first to the door, she loves a good ear scratch and belly rub.

As Rosie gets older, she is slowing down outside of work Rosie and spends most of her time on the sofa getting cuddles and eating treats, however, she still finds the energy to run alongside the horses when the mood takes her.
