C. Stephen Crandall founded SC Audit & Accounting Solutions, LLC, in March 2014 after he left his job as an Auditor at PwC in downtown Phoenix. Inspired by his determination, he believed he had more than enough experience to start his own business after working at a Big Four CPA firm. It has been his goal to establish a CPA firm in his hometown, Prescott, Arizona.
Starting his business with practically no capital did not hinder him but in fact motivated him to pursue his ambition. From a small office space along Montezuma Street, Stephen focused on providing audit and accounting solutions to government and non-profit entities as well as small businesses. With his experience as a Big Four Auditor and his top-notch client service, the firm swiftly grew. Most of the firm’s business growth is attributed to satisfied clients’ personal referrals. Word of mouth advertising made a big difference on the growth of SCAA.
Consequently, the firm moved to a bigger office space along Grove Avenue. Stephen hired three part-time employees and expanded the firm’s services. He created a tax department to help clients prepare their tax returns, as well as tax planning. SCAA continued to grow and employed more employees. In addition to SCAA’s mission of providing excellent client service, it also aims to train locals for growth by recruiting, hiring, and training local college graduates and new professionals.
As part of its expansion program, SCAA acquired three local CPA firms. As a result, SCAA now has two offices, the Crossings office, and the Plaza West office. Both offices are located in Prescott, Arizona. SCAA serves the community around Arizona particularly non-profit entities, government entities, special districts, small business and individual taxpayers. SCAA provides CPA + business consulting, audit support, accounting + bookkeeping, and tax planning + preparation services.
As we continue to grow, we continue to provide a positive experience and added value for our clients, our employees and the community. We continue to uphold our mission: Service-Oriented, Committed to Excellence
