I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Wael and his staff at Accounting Shield! I was referred to Accounting Shield by a small business owner friend who has been using Wael for years and highly recommended him to me. I admit being a little nervous and stressed out before our first consultation, but Wael really put my mind at ease as he took the time to answer all of my questions and address all of my concerns. I’ve never met another accountant as knowledgeable and practical, he has a genuine gift of being able to make this stressful process of tax filing seem so easy and effortless! There were many legitimate expenses and write-offs that Wael uncovered for me that my previous accountant had no knowledge of that ended up saving me tons of money, which needless to say made me very happy!
It’s an added bonus to be able to pick up the phone and call Wael whenever I have a question that could have future tax consequences to me, and he has been an incredible resource for me when making important financial decisions lately.
If you’re stressed out about filing your taxes and want to make sure you are not paying more than you should to the tax man, do yourself a big favor and give Wael at Accounting Shield a call. You’ll be very happy you did!
I would recommend Accounting Shield for individuals and small business owners who want to do themselves a great favor because of a long list of reasons, the most important reasons in the list is that you get the service of the BIG 4 FIRMS for the price of the regular CPA, professional conduct, you get free answers for your questions all year long not in the tax season only like others and the one that I really enjoy is the advices (consulting) Wael is an excellent advisor.
I had been using Accounting Shield for the last three years to file my taxes.
They are very good at their profession beside being nice, helpful and reasonable in price.
I have a complicated situation where they have to include stock gain/loss, beside other incomes. They are doing it relatively cheap if compared to others. My guy there is named Wael, he is very nice, always reply to my messages or emails. He calls back if I left him a voice message, and remind me with any missing income or expenses according to my previous year filing. I feel now that Wael is not only my accountant but also my friend. Although I moved now to Santa Clara, I still use them for my taxes
It is my pleasure to put my 1st review on Yelp for Accounting Shield. It is all about me doing my 2013 Taxes. I was able to reach Wael El-Khalafawi and he was able to take over all the stress since it is my 1st year to be self-employed and run a small business. Great help from Wael and his firm. Now it is right about time for me to contact Accounting Shield for my 2014 Taxes.
Wael at Accounting Shield is responsive, fast and knowledgeable. Prepared our tax returns right away, gave us some great advice, offers tips and shows you ways you can handle certain things yourself – meaning he’s not trying to milk you for anything he can in fees – and he’s in a great location in Northridge. We chose to work with Wael based on the 5 star rating and we are not disappointed. He responds quickly by phone or email and has an easy on-line system for viewing your returns, signing the necessary forms and getting everything taken care of electronically. We’ve found our new accountant and will recommend him to others.
Wael has been with us ten years – through growing our family, expanding our business, incorporating, and dealing with the accounting side of other legal issues. I’ve happily recommended him to friends who have all given me positive feedback on their dealings with him and recommended him on to others. Wael has learned what matters to us and acts in our best interests. I appreciate the honesty and flexibility he has demonstrated over time.
