you can use @@identity for this
CREATE procedure [dbo].[InsertCompany]  
  
  
@ConsultantID int,  
@ConsultantName nvarchar(200),  
@CompanyName nchar(100)  
  
  
  
as  

declare @id as int

INSERT INTO  
tblCommentCompany   
(  
    added_date ,  
    consultant_id ,  
    consultant,  
    company_name  
)  
  
VALUES   
(  
GETDATE (),  
@ConsultantID ,  
@ConsultantName ,  
@CompanyName  
)  
 
set @id =@@identity 

  
INSERT INTO tblCompanyHistory  
(  
his_action,  
consultant_id,  
consultant,  
added_date,  
company_id  
  
)  
  
VALUES  
  
(  
'Created',  
@ConsultantID,  
@Consultant,  
GETDATE(),  
@id
)
