** IRS Mandated Plan Restatement

Planned for 2014

The IRS will require all 401(k) and/or Profit Sharing plan sponsors to restate their plan document in its entirety to comply with a variety of law changes that have occurred over the past five years.  The fee for this restatement will be $1,000 and will include preparation of new Summary Plan Descriptions for all of your eligible employees.  If your plan was newly established in 2012 or after you will receive a discounted fee.

 

What is a qualified retirement plan?

  • A qualified retirement plan is recognized as one of the greatest tax shelters and benefits available to business owners/employers.
  • A qualified retirement plan is a formal trust arrangement established to provide tax shelter incentives to businesses that sponsor them while also adding to their employee benefits package.
  • Qualified retirement plans allow for the accumulation of large sums of retirement earnings on a pre-tax basis for both employees and business owners.
  • Qualified retirement plans can be designed to allow for large retirement benefits for the owner and employer.
  • An accurately designed and successfully managed qualified retirement plan will attain the business and retirement goals of the owner and employer.

Why sponsor a qualified retirement plan?

  • Owners and employers are allowed to take annual tax deductions on contributions to their qualified retirement plan.
  • Contributions on behalf of employees and employers remain tax deferred until it is distributed from a qualified retirement plan.
  • Earnings from investments also remain tax deferred until they are distributed from a qualified retirement plan.
