When people think of accounting they think of numbers. The dedicated employees at Scheffel take a different approach. They see those numbers as a way to help their clients create financial stability and build dreams.

Scheffel & Company partners with individuals and businesses to provide professional accounting and tax consulting services. Their long standing relationships with clients sets them apart from other accounting firms. Scheffel & Company has partnered with many businesses and individuals since their inception in 1955 and has worked to help them grow.

Another key element setting Scheffel & Company apart is being locally owned and operated. Their clients know that they are not only getting the best in the field but also a hometown firm which understands the needs of businesses and individuals in southern Illinois.

Scheffel & Company has grown much larger since the days when their founder, Richard Scheffel, set up shop in 1955. What hasn’t changed is the company’s loyalty to its clients and the employees’ commitment to keeping current on accounting and tax changes and laws.

“Our goal is to continue to provide expert professional services to local individual and businesses,” said Sue Webb, marketing coordinator at Scheffel & Company.

Scheffel & Company has for decades been involved in many community organizations and events. This year in addition to their regular community involvement the company participated in an annual CPA Day of Service by volunteering a day at the Watershed Nature Center. Scheffel & Company also adopted a family at Christmas and provided gifts for the whole family as well as all the food for a Christmas dinner.

When asked about a favorite quote or mantra that represents Scheffel & Company’s perspective on doing business, Webb responded, “Our managing principal often uses the word ‘focus’ to remind us to pay attention to all the needs of our clients and zero in on what is important.”

An Ed/Glen Chamber member since 1969, Scheffel & Company has had the opportunity to work with many other chamber members and evolve with the growing community. Scheffel has also been fortunate to have many employees provide professional knowledge by sitting on various boards and committees with the Ed/Glen Chamber.
