We have a variety of small business retirement plans that offer self-employed, entrepreneurs, and sole proprietors and their employees, tax-advantaged ways to save for retirement. And with flexible funding, tax-deductible contributions, a wide range of investment choices, and higher contribution options than a traditional IRA, we can help you find a plan that's right for your business needs and retirement goals.
A Solo 401k, also commonly referred to as an individual 401k, is for self-employed individuals without full-time employees. By allowing you to contribute as both the employer and the employee, this plan enables you (and your spouse if he or she works for you) to boost your retirement savings with higher contribution limits. Both Roth and pre-tax salary deferrals may be permitted.
A Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRA is a plan completely funded by the employer. This plan benefits both the employer and employees, with tax-deductible contributions for the employer and tax-deferred growth for the employees. Flexibility over contributions makes it a good choice for businesses with varying profits.
A Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE) allows both the employer and employee to contribute to employee retirement accounts with tax benefits for employer contributions and the ability for employees to make pre-tax contributions. This plan is intended for businesses with steady profits.
Profit-Sharing plans reward employees with a percentage of company profits, although contributions do not have to be based on profits. Employer contributions are discretionary and provide tax benefits for both the employer and employee.
