CLEVELAND (WJW) -- The banking industry, like many others, is responding to the coronavirus pandemic and starting to put new measures in place.

Nik Wearsch, a financial advisor with Carver Financial Services in Mentor, said he always encourages clients to be prepared for the unexpected but not to panic.

“If you’ve got your immediate provisions set aside, food, a little cash, and then within your account you have money to carry you through a few months of needs, then there’s no need to make an immediate change,” Wearsch said.

He noted the federal government made changes after the 2008 financial crisis to support banks.

“I don’t think people should be worried about the bank not having enough money because the government’s already putting a lot of that emergency procedures in place,” Wearsch said.

He said most banks are federally insured. At FDIC-insured banks, all deposit accounts are covered up to $250,000 per depositor, per insured bank.

10.23.19 Smart Business Dealmakers

Business owners who fail to consider the tax implications of selling their business are asking for trouble, says Randy Carver, president and CEO at Carver Financial Services, Inc.

“If you structure the sale incorrectly and the proceeds are deemed income as opposed to capital gains, there can be 50 to 100 percent more tax paid,” Carver says. “Depending on what you’re doing, there may be ways to avoid the tax altogether, or defer it. If you’re selling to another company and you don’t need as much cash, maybe you do a stock exchange. There may be no tax implications at all.”

While it sounds like an easy mistake to avoid, Carver says he has seen far too many business owners take a less-than-committed approach to developing a comprehensive exit strategy before putting their company on the market.

Carver Financial 10,000-square-foot expansion underway

Carver Financial Services Inc. of Mentor began a 10,000-square-foot expansion June 12. 

In 2012, Carver Financial launched a five-phase improvement program and phases one through four have been completed. Read article.

10,000 Sq. Ft. Expansion Begins 6.12.19

MENTOR, Ohio, June 12, 2019 - The 10,000 Sq. Ft. Carver Financial Services Inc. expansion has begun at our Center Street location in the heart of Mentor. 

“This expansion is part of our
continuing commitment to provide our clients, team and community with a
comfortable state-of-the-art building,” says Randy Carver, President of Carver
Financial Services Inc., an independent practice, and Branch Manager with
Raymond James Financial Services. The expansion will double the existing
building size and is expected to be complete by the end of October.

In 2012, we began a planned five-phase improvement program for the building and behind-the-scenes infrastructure. Phases 1 through 4 are now complete.

  • Phases 1 and 2 were undertaken and completed in
    2012. This involved the complete renovation of computer systems and an update
    to the file center and basement conference center. This work also involved the
    complete demolition and remodeling of the second floor on the east side of the
    building. This upgrade allowed for an update to wiring, network and data
    technology while adding seven office spaces.
  • Phase 3 involved the renovation of the reception
    area and exterior of the east side of the building. The new exterior is an
    energy-efficient exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) system. This
    phase of the project also entailed adding new servers and digital
    infrastructure for the building. Both handicapped accessibility and general
    access were improved, and parking was expanded.
  • Phase 4 was the largest part of the project and
    was completed in October 2013. In this phase, the original one-story building
    was demolished and replaced with a state-of-the-art two-story facility.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience and
understanding as we complete these improvements,” commented Carver. “As with
our financial planning strategy, we want to be proactive with our facilities so
we can continue to provide exceptional service and a great experience to our
clients, and future generations, for decades to come!”

Since 1990, Carver Financial Services Inc. has been helping clients in Lake County and around the world enhance and maintain their standard of living while simplifying their lives. Randy Carver and his team manage more than $1.4 billion in assets, providing comprehensive financial planning with a focus on retirement income.
