As an employer with 100 or fewer employees, you have the ability to establish a simple and cost-effective retirement plan for you and your staff. There are a few options available, but one you may want to consider is the Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees, commonly known as SIMPLE IRA. This plan type is an attractive recruiting and retention tool for highly compensated employees who are deterred from traditional 401(k) plans due to discrimination testing.
Planning for a successful future is not a one-size-fits-all plan. Your business needs are unique from all other business owners, even if your business is in the same industry. With such a diversity in businesses and owners, how do you go about finding the plan that is best suited for you? Here are three approaches to planning that can help you improve your odds for future success.
As a business owner, you focus your time and energy on the growth and daily operation of your business. Consequently, it can be challenging to find the time to think about its long-term future. But having a plan in place to ensure the continuity of your business should anything happen to you is essential. For many business owners, this plan involves setting up a buy-sell agreement. To help you determine if such an agreement is right for your business, it’s important to understand what it is, how it works, and the funding methods available.
