WHO WE ARE
Welcome to our website.
My name is Eva Beatrix Szabo, and this is our story
I earned my first qualifications from the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers in 2010. I started as a sole trader, Eva Bookkeeping, then as the business grew I founded EVLA LTD in 2011 with my husband. We ran the business from our living room after the birth of our daughter as, having a newborn baby, I needed my office to be at home. My husband built the website while I dealt with both old and new clients and wrote all the articles myself. Our aim was to get about 20 to 30 clients and match the monthly income I'd earned as an employee before I went on maternity leave.
In the last 9 years our business grew (with our daughter) far more than we could ever have imagined. Although we now have more than 1,500 companies and 4,500 individuals in our client base, I still want to keep direct contact with all our clients, answering all their enquiries, which means an average of 100 emails on a daily basis.
Of course it couldn’t have been done without the support of our great team. I now have 10 amazing people working alongside me, of whom I am very very proud. They all work with the same concept in mind, to help and support our clients as much as we can.
Along with EVLA LTD we own and manage Evlacorp LTD, a company formation agent registered at Companies House. The main reason for dividing our activities was due to the different regulations with which we have to comply. Evlacorp LTD is registered under HMRC itself for the Money Laundering Regulations. It is also a member of the Association of Company Formation Agents and part of the UK Investment Support Directory, as we have helped many overseas businesses become established and expand in the United Kingdom. We also have foreign companies on our client base who have UK Tax Affairs (VAT or PAYE).
We have developed our own CRM system with lots of reminders, alerts and regular communication with our clients. With these semi-automated reminders we (and our clients) never miss a deadline.
We have seen a lot of different situations, which have helped us gain a great deal of experience through the years. I will never state that “we know it all”, because we are learning day by day. But one thing is sure, we have learnt how to find special regulations, deal with exceptional situations really quickly and how to think “outside the box” if needed. We have built a great connection with HMRC and Companies House and they always come to our aid should we need it.
We know that when you need your Accountant, you need them quickly. So someone is always available to answer your calls, except for the usual public holidays and a further 2 days of the year. Every year we take the whole team and their families on an annual trip to celebrate our achievements and plan the future together. So far we have been to Paris (twice), La Palma, London and Nice.
We are also proud to support the community around us, regularly donating to causes close to our heart to build a better future for our daughter and all children.
