Firm Profile

Smith, Carney & Co.("SCC") was founded in 1984 by six former principals of a "Big 8" accounting firm. The firm's purpose was and is to provide high-level tax and accounting services to a diversified base of clients located in Oklahoma City and communities throughout Oklahoma, as well as the surrounding states. To enable us to better serve our clients, we opened an office in Ardmore, Oklahoma in October 2000.

Using over 136 years of accumulated knowledge, SCC's principals, together with an able staff, assist clients in minimizing taxes and planning for their retirement and estates. Extensive and practical experience in both accounting and tax compliance offers clients the benefit of our business experience, while high-level tax advisory services help minimize taxes to retain profits.

What sets SCC apart from the other firms is our non-departmentalized approach to each client's needs. Unlike most firms, our auditors are proficient in tax and our tax preparers are proficient in auditing. This cross-training helps clients comply with today's complex tax laws with a minimum of effort and expense.

Our commitment to excellence in our areas of practice is evidenced by the selection of our staff, continuing education program, research resources and emphasis on quality control. SCC is proud to be one of the first CPA firms in Oklahoma to successfully undergo quality control under the AICPA mandated program.

Our firm is a member of the SEC Section of the AICPA Division for Firms, which includes regular peer review. In pursuit of excellence, Smith, Carney & Co.maintains active membership in many professional societies, including:

* SEC Practice Section of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants

It is our goal that clients and third-party users may always have confidence that our services are in accordance with standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. We will always plan our client's interests first by accepting only engagements for which we are qualified, rather than being all things to all people. To accomplish this goal, SCC's highly skilled professional staff meets with you and listens carefully to your needs. We believe in ongoing communications to answer questions and solve potential problems. Only then can we design solutions to your problems that are proactive rather than reactive.
