Clifton Bodiford CPAs Merges Into Scott and Company

Columbia, S.C.-based Clifton Bodiford CPAs has merged its practice into Columbia, S.C.-based Scott and Company LLC, and will operate under the Scott and Company brand, effective immediately. Former founders and principals Clif Bodiford and Dave Bodiford both join Scott and Company under the terms of the deal.

The leadership of both firms, each of which provides audit and assurance, tax and a range of consulting services to clients across the Southeast and internationally, voted unanimously to consummate the arrangement.

“We have known and respected the Scott and Company leadership team for years, and we knew that our client service commitment, professionalism and cultures of the two firms were highly compatible,” says Bodiford in announcing the merger. “Combined, we look forward to providing additional resources and capabilities to our clients while continuing to deliver exceptional accounting, tax and assurance services.”

Don Mobley, Columbia MP of Scott and Company, says, “The Scott and Company organization is pleased and excited to finalize joining forces with these exceptional professionals. We have known Clif and Dave Bodiford for years through both professional and civic circles, and are excited to work together to continue providing clients with the exceptional service and technical expertise that the combined firm can provide.”

The combined firm now numbers approximately 40 professionals. With clients ranging from individuals to multi-state and international organizations, the firm has particularly deep expertise in serving closely held businesses and their owners, as well as leaders in the financial services, health care, real estate, government, manufacturing, hospitality, professional services and non-profit arenas.
