In 1983, Scott D. Shapiro left Price Waterhouse to join the firm of Harvey Kaufman, CPA. Scott knew early in his career that he wanted to provide high quality accounting and tax services to small and mid-sized businesses and individuals. He believed the best way to accomplish that goal was to join a small, local accounting firm. After forming the partnership of Kaufman & Shapiro, CPAs in 1986, Scott, Harvey, and their staff moved to the Office Court in Ramsey, New Jersey.
In 1994, Scott and Harvey merged their practice with Mark S. Weber, CPA, another Price Waterhouse Alumni, to form Kaufman, Shapiro & Weber, CPAs. When Harvey Kaufman retired the following year, the firm name changed to Weber & Shapiro, CPAs, and later to Weber, Shapiro & Company LLP. In late 2015, the firm moved to its new office located in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. Since its formation, Weber, Shapiro & Company LLP has grown significantly through referrals by providing outstanding services to small-to-mid-sized businesses and individuals.
