Larry Barber founded Barber Financial with his accounting and tax practice on April 8, 1981. Larry has served many businesses and individuals over the years with all of their accounting and payroll needs. After working with a CFP for many years and seeing the importance of financial advising, Larry got his securities licenses in 1986 and expanded his services to incorporate investment and tax advice. Barber Financial moved to the current office location in January of 1993. In 2000, Larry sold the payroll business to Advanced Business Computing Service, who Barber Financial still works closely with. Shortly after in 2001, Barber Financial affiliated with Tuning Accounting Services who took over the accounting side of the practice. We still work closely with Tuning Accounting today.
Scott Barber followed in his father’s footsteps and has been a part of the family business since 1996. Scott obtained his Certified Financial Planner Designation in 2011. Since then, Barber Financial has grown into a full-service financial services company where we assist our clients with Tax, Insurance, Investment, Retirement, and Estate Planning needs.
Larry began his accounting and tax practice in 1981 and has guided the growth and expansion of services. Larry obtained his securities registration and is a Registered Tax Return Preparer. Larry is a devoted family man being married for over 48 years to his wife Carol. He is the father to four children, Scott, Karen, Steven, and Kevin, and grandfather to 11 grandchildren. He also has devoted many hours of church and community service over the years which have been recognized by several awards including Jaycee of Year, DACS Distinguished Alumni, and DACS Parental Involvement Award of Excellence. Larry has spent many hours dedicated to Barber Financial and is looking forward to spending more time with his family, grandchildren and doing more traveling with his wife while semi-retiring.
