Shannon started SMB Accounting and Consulting LLC in 2018 to bring her unique knowledge of federal government contract accounting to Central Florida. Her experience in corporate controllership assists a number of growing startups and small businesses in Orange and Brevard counties. When people hear CPA, they tend to assume it’s all about tax preparation. Shannon’s goal is different. Managerial and cost accounting are important business functions that ensure proper product pricing, allow for an accurate status of cash flow, and provide pertinent information for manager and owner decision-making. For small businesses attempting federal contracts there is a long list of requirements that can be difficult to maneuver. These areas are where Shannon’s expertise can help. In her first full year working with one small business, Shannon was able to contribute to a net income increase of 900% by implementing strategic internal controls, data analysis and accounting oversight.
