What's it like to work with us?

What is it like to work with us? We hope you will take a few minutes to explore our website so that you can get a sense of our approach to serving your needs and how we are different from many others in our profession.

You'll hear most CPA firms talk about accuracy, confidentiality, timeliness, etc.  Certainly those are all qualities that are critically important but wouldn't you expect all those traditional traits from any long established consulting firm? Of course you do. And we do as well. So rather than ramble on about the obvious we would like to take this chance to tell you about why Scholl & Company, LLP is very different and should be your firm of choice.

Your success is our bottom line.
