Employer Sponsored Retirement
Retirement is a time to look towards, but remembering to plan for it now is not always first on our minds. By supplying your employees with a retirement plan you are giving them a valuable benefit while supplying yourself with a potential tax deduction.
Simplified Employee Pension (SEP)
A SEP IRA is an employer retirement plan functioning as a Traditional IRA. This plan is available to any employer but it cannot coexist with another retirement plan. Plan participants may continue to make nondeductible traditional IRA contributions to this account, while enrolled in this plan. All SEP contributions must be made by the employer. Contribution allowances to SEP’s vary each year. Consult your tax advisor for current limits.
Savings Incentive Match Plan (SIMPLE)
This plan is for employers with no more than 100 employees who earned at least $5,000 the previous year. Salary deferred contributions must be made by 30 days after the deferral. After two years of the original contribution, the funds may be rolled over or transferred to a Traditional IRA. Contribution allowances also vary each year for “SIMPLE”. Consult your tax advisor for current limits.
Employer Contributed Health Savings Accounts
Supplying your employees with health care can be costly, but by combining a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)* with an HSA you can minimize your costs and still give your employees this great benefit. Not only does an HSA allow your employee to save for medical expenses, there are also potential tax benefits for both you and your employees. Contributions to the HSA can be made by the employee or the employer and balances in these accounts roll over from year to year – no worries about losing money if it’s not used by a certain time. *Consult with your insurance provider to see if your health care plan qualifies.
