Letter from the founder
About ABC: Team
Welcome, I’m Leïla!
I’m the founder of Amsterdam’s ABC.
Truth be told, I’m kind of jealous of you… that twisted knot of excitement and anxiety is a sign you’re in for a great adventure!
It’s been six years and I am still enchanted by everything my little corner of Amsterdam has to offer: the bikes, the canals, the warm and helpful neighbors… I was really lucky. In all the administrative turmoil and misguidance, I was also surrounded by lovely people that supported me from the moment I first arrived. But I know not everyone will have the same luck.
That’s why I opened Amsterdam’s ABC. I want to help others with the knowledge I was so generously given as well as the lessons I have learnt the hard way, so you don’t have to.
I'm sure you've noticed that accounting and administrative firms are in no short supply in the Netherlands. Neither is their drive to grow their customer base. Unfortunately this can mean that, to many firms, clients are little more than an invoice number getting lost in the shuffle. I remember feeling like that too often: going days without getting a response to my calls or emails. My questions went unanswered and in extreme cases, my paperwork wasn’t filed correctly. This sometimes even resulted in administrative and financial repercussions at my expense.
Amsterdam’s ABC is different: we are a small network of international professionals committed to offering dependable, compassionate and affordable consultancy services in terms people can understand. We are always there when you need us because we know what you’re going through—we’ve been there.
We offer package services for things such as relocation arrangements & tax preparation, as well as our €15 for 15 minutes “Quick Question” service. This is perfect if you need us to translate mail for you, or if you simply want to see how we work before committing to us for bigger needs. Feel free to look around and read what our clients have to say about working with us.
Thank you for reading this far. I am so happy you found us and can’t wait to meet you! Click below to see how we can help.
