The concept of Highsmith & Highsmith started in 1999 when Shane Highsmith graduated from Clemson University with a degree in accounting. Todd Highsmith, Shane’s brother, was working as a CFO at the time.
Shane and Todd wanted a different kind of CPA firm. They wanted daily operations to be driven by their commitment to their clients’ success. They wanted their clients to feel comfortable, not talked-down-to. They wanted to offer practical, sound advice based on their expertise and experience, to help guide clients in their decision-making processes.
The concept of a family-owned firm based on these principles became a reality twelve years later, and the brothers chose their hometown of Travelers Rest, SC to locate their office. The brothers’ combined experience enables them to offer clients a full range of expert financial services in way that leaves clients confident that their companies are on a path of growth and profitability.
Todd, Shane and the team do great work! My company has been a client of theirs since they started, and we have always been pleased with their professionalism and care. They're also pretty great people, too!Adam Kelley - Leopard Forest Coffee
I've been using Highsmith and Highsmith for my accounting and my payroll services for over 5 years. The quality of service and advice has been better than any firm I have used in the past. Shane and Todd are excellent CPAs with a ton of real world experience, running companies themselves. I wouldn't choose a different firm for any reason. I have, and will continue to recommend them to all my friends.Caleb Walker - Walker Pest Management
We could not be happier having our business with Highsmith & Highsmith, CPA’s over the past five plus years. They not only serve our tax needs, they give sound advice as to how we move forward in making financial decisions for our company. Todd has served us tirelessly over the years. We even moved our payroll services to them as well. Natalie is so through and timely in her responses. She is a pleasure to work with. It is nice to know they have our best interests at heart.Cheri Sanders - Century Concrete
