What some recent clients say about their experience with Beyond Accounting & Tax
Over the past few years I have searched for a CPA that not only would assist me in capturing my financials for my business, but would explain to me exactly what we are doing. I constantly get messages via linked in from CPA's asking to do my business taxes and never seemed to find the one who understood the word "empathy". Mileen is a rare find, she is patient, she explains step by step, she shows empathy for your business situations, and most of all did an outstanding job getting all the information I needed for my taxes. Not only did she provide me with more information than any other CPA, but because of what she did I was able to go back and re-do my previous taxes to make sure they were accurate. I give Mileen a 12 out of 10 stars!
I highly recommend Mileen Anderson. She's conscientious, detail-oriented and user-friendly. Moreover, my tax refund was $1,000 more than the one prepared by my previous CPA. I have faith in her abilities and endorse her without hesitation.
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.
I had the pleasure of working with Mileen on a number of projects while at JWI. She is a solid performer and a team player always delivering the best to her clients. Mileen's dedication, integrity and work ethic makes her an invaluable asset to any company.
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.
Mileen is extremely smart (analytical), she has work ethic to spare and she is, without a doubt, one of the most genuinely nice people that I have met in life, really. I would welcome Mileen on any project, in any capacity.
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!
