Your success is at the heart of our SMSF audit solutions

Our Story

Starting his career as an auditor, then running his own accounting practice, Ron Phipps-Ellis realised just how many SMSF professionals were bogged down with inefficient manual processes costing them time and money.

His breadth of experience in the industry means he understands the needs of his fellow accountants and auditors. So, back in 2006, he set out to build an SMSF audit-only business focused on building process efficiency and raising quality standards.

The passion placed on success and value for money for Evolv’s customers, led the business to become an award-winning SMSF audit leader in Australia.

In 2012, this true believer in technology, together with his team, went a step further to deliver more value to customers and built an automated super audit platform.

Their work redefined SMSF audits into a data-centric digital reality, and along the way transformed the audit process.

As a result of Evolv’s independent, fully automated and expertly developed integrated SMSF software for auditing process, The SMSF Association of Auditors Association appointed Ron Phipps-Ellis as their Director in September 2021

Today, Evolv is recognised as a leading multi-solution SMSF audit service and software business in Australia, offering value and efficiency.
