Small Business Retirement Plans

As a business owner, you should carefully consider the advantages of establishing an employer-sponsored retirement plan. Generally, you're allowed a deduction for contributions you make to an employer-sponsored retirement plan. A retirement plan can provide you with a tax-advantaged method to save funds for your own retirement, while providing your employees with a powerful and appreciated benefit. No matter if you have 100 employees or work as a sole-proprietor, you can take advantage of a small business retirement plan.

Managing Your Retirement Plan

Our advisors work closely with you on plan design, investment management and plan maintenance, and act as a direct pipeline to participants to answer one-on-one questions they have. The network of professionals who we work with can help make the employer retirement plan efficient and beneficial to the business and to the ownership, while meeting compliance and legal requirements.

Types of Small Business Retirement Plans

There are several types of retirement plans to choose from, and each type of plan has advantages and disadvantages. You should also know that the law may permit you to have more than one retirement plan, and with sophisticated planning, a combination of plans might best suit the needs of the business and the ownership. We work with many different types of employer retirement plans, including:

  • 401(k)
  • Profit Sharing
  • Solo 401(k)
  • Safe Harbor 401(k)
  • Defined Benefit

This is not an exhaustive list, but represents the most popular plans in use today. Current tax laws give retirement plan professionals new and creative ways to write plan formulas and combine different types of plans, in order to maximize contributions and benefits for owners and highly-compensated employees. Retirement plans can be complex, and ensuring that all requirements are met to comply with laws can be time-consuming. Our experienced advisors work diligently to help you ensure your retirement plan is efficient, suitable and compliant.
