The History of D.h. Scott & Company
David H. Scott, who began operations as the only employee, organized D.H. Scott & Company in June 1986. Since 1986, D.H. Scott & Company has grown to become one of the largest CPA firms in the Redding area with a staff of 26, including 14 CPAs.
D.H. Scott & Company has built a reputation as a young, aggressive CPA firm employing talented accountants, many of whom have advanced degrees and prior experience with national CPA firms. The firm has built a broad base of clientele in every phase of the north state economy, including manufacturing, construction, lumber and logging, high tech, agriculture, transportation, retail, financial, professional, health care, and governmental and non-profit. Other services include litigation consulting and expert witness testimony in the areas of bankruptcy, fraud investigations, valuation, structured settlements, and damages.
The firm originally operated under the name of David H. Scott Accountancy Corporation until 1995. At the beginning of 1996, the firm was changed to a new corporation known as D. H. Scott & Company, a Professional Corporation. At that time, Keith F. Hunting was admitted as a partner to the firm, followed later in 1996 by the admission of Vivian R. Piche'. Effective January 1, 1997, the firm changed its form of organization to a limited liability partnership, known as D.H. Scott & Company, Certified Public Accountants, a Limited Liability Partnership. At that time Paul J. Catanese was admitted as partner.
