- Payroll News which is published quarterly, and the
- Legislative Newsletter that is published as warranted.
For all three series of newsletters, the prior articles are archived and links to the the most recent news items appear right on the home page.
Other major sections of the website include;
- About Us which includes staff bios, the mission and firm history.
- Services section contains a listing and descrption of the major types of services the firm provides.
- Industries Served tab highlights some of the high end expertise the firm offers.
- News contains a sign-up area for users to subscribe to any of the three newsletters regularly published by the firm. There is an archive of some recent newsletters. The "News" tab also contains press releases regarding the firm.

On May 1, 1998 Diane Crutchman became the first non-owner employee of Schulte & Company CPAs Inc. Fifteen years later, she is still here.
Besides providing top quality service to our clients, Diane also serves as the firm’s Administrative Manager.
Worth noting is that Diane has worked with many of Schulte & Company’s clients for much longer than 15 years. Diane’s career started with Dorsey Arnold CPA in 1978. When Mr. Arnold retired, his firm was acquired by Robert Lusk CPA and Diane went along for the ride. When Mr. Lusk passed away, Schulte & Company purchased the practice – and Diane came along.
So while she is celebrating her crystal anniversary with Schulte & Company, she is actually celebrating her 35th anniversary serving our clients.
CPA firms are required to have a peer review every three years. The peer review is generally conducted by another CPA that is independent and certified by the American Institute of CPAs and state accounting boards. The peer review process helps to monitor a CPA firm’s accounting and auditing practice and the goals of peer review include confirmation that the standards of the accounting profession are being followed and to ensure quality in the accounting and auditing services that a CPA firm provides.
There are two types of peer reviews: Engagement Reviews and System Reviews. The less intensive Engagement Reviews are conducted off site. Schulte & Company CPAs Inc. receives the more complex System Review that is conducted on site by another independent CPA. The findings of Review are forwarded to the Ohio Society of CPAs and the American Institute of CPAs who then issues its findings.
Consistent with prior periods, Schulte & Company CPAs Inc. passed its most recent peer review without exception.
