What some recent clients say about their experience with Beyond Accounting & Tax
Our team enjoys working with Shona Bell. She answers our questions, makes suggestions and helped us smoothly transition from one platform onto another within 30 days. Her style is direct yet conversational to aid your organization in achieving its financial goals. We highly recommend her services.
Shona has been the financial officer of Women Giving Back, a nonprofit in Sterling Virginia for several years now. I am also on the executive committee of the Board. I have watched as Shona has taken the organization to a much more structured financial program where we are clear on how all of our expenses and income is recorded and categorized. She has strategically made adjustments where necessary and financially beneficial. She is open with her work, can explain things in common language. I would want Shona on any Board I am a part of as the financial leader.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Shona for over 4 years and share in her enjoyment of working with nonprofit organizations. Shona is a strong, personable CPA who thoroughly enjoys working with nonprofit Organizations while helping them move forward in their mission. She brings excitement to any technical matter and helps to make accounting fun!
Shona is a very bright and personable CPA who knows her work inside-out. She is selfmotivated, independent, efficient and her understanding of the various components of an effective nonprofit accounting operation has added a tremendous value to our agency. She does everything with integrity and a strong strategic commitment focused on activities, opportunities and decisions that protect and support our organization’s core mission and needs. She communicates potential problems well to me and the Board and create plans and recommendations for solutions to problem areas. She recently guided us step by step through our new payroll system and compliance. She will be an asset to any company that decides to use her services and I recommend her without any reservation.
Shona is a breath of fresh air!! The majority of the people I have worked with in her field were mostly dull, introverted "number crunchers". Shona is quite the opposite. While she is the ultimate professional who is highly-skilled at her job, she is also a passionate, outgoing addition to any employment culture. She readily assumes a leadership role and gives of her time to complete any task given. Shona is a go-getter and diligently works to get the job done. I was blessed to have worked with her!
