Jeffrey A. Elwell, CPA

DIRECTOR/CHAIR – Accounting & Auditing

 

Meet Jeff
Attentive | Diverse | Meticulous | Cowboy

Jeff is a man of many responsibilities, both for clients and BLS. He cultivates a strong client
service philosophy to address the issues of today as well as tomorrow. Jeff’s experience and
background allows him to work with a diverse group of for-profits, nonprofits and individuals.

He lives and breathes the “small is the new big” philosophy with a keen eye for building consultative
relationships. Jeff’s expertise is the same that you’d find at a much larger firm, yet it’s personalized
to each client and their industry. He is proud of his well-rounded technical expertise that enables him
to meet the needs of his clients as a financial reporting, audit/assurance and tax professional. This
diversity provides his clients a large knowledge base with individual attention.

In addition to his client responsibilities, Jeff acts as the Quality Control Director for BLS, providing the
technical expertise on financial statement reporting issues, evaluating newly enacted accounting
principles and auditing standards and monitoring the firm’s compliance with professional standards.
He is also qualified to assist other accounting firms with their peer review as a peer review team
captain or team member.

Perspectives from Jeff

“I wish I didn’t have to wear a tie, because I am not a formal bean counter. I’m a collaborator. I define
value for my clients by knowing the industry, knowing their goals and being able to provide the service
to make it happen.”

“Audit is such a negative word, but we can show you how painless it can be. It’s our job to create a
comfortable and meaningful relationship with clients that not only sets the groundwork for compliance,
but allows for timely service as well as constructive and valuable advisory feedback.”

    • Compensation Issues – Revisited

      We are more than halfway through the retirement plan audit season and we have noticed a number of common errors occurring with compensation. I previously discussed these issues in my blog series “Compensation: The Missing Link - Part 1” and "Compensation: The Missing Link - Part 2," but we want to revisit the issue, since we are seeing this error occur on a rather consistent basis.

    • Back to School with Charity Navigator

      School has officially started across the country, and it looks like students won’t be the only ones who will be graded out of 100 points this year. Charity Navigator, a nonprofit organization that evaluates charities in the United States and compares them to charities with similar causes, recently changed their rating system from a 70-point scale to a 100-point scale.
