Individual(k) For businesses with no common-law employees, this plan allows owner(s) to maximize their contributions. Employer contributions are tax deductible to the business and salary deferral can be in the form of pre-tax contributions (which are excluded from income for federal income tax purposes) or designated Roth contributions.

SEP IRA Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) plans allow the business to make all contributions for every eligible employee. There are no administration costs, minimal paperwork, and all contributions are tax deductible to the business.

SIMPLE IRA Any business with 100 or fewer employees can establish a SIMPLE IRA plan. There are no administration costs and it offers benefits similar to a 401(k) plan. Employees are able to defer a portion of their salary, pre-tax, and the business makes a tax-deductible matching or non-elective contribution.

Safe Harbor 401(k) Plan Any public or private company can establish a 401(k) plan. These plans are widely recognized for the advantage they offer of allowing eligible employees to contribute a portion of their salary, either pre-tax or as a designated Roth contribution. The Safe Harbor 401(k) Plan requires the business to contribute either matching or non-elective amounts to the plan on behalf of eligible employees. Profit-sharing contributions are optional. Safe Harbor plans do not restrict the amount of money highly compensated employees can contribute to the plan.

Traditional 401(k) Plan The Traditional 401(k) Plan allows eligible employees to contribute a portion of their salaries, either pre-tax or as a designated Roth contribution. The business may choose to contribute matching, non-elective, or profit-sharing amounts to the plan on behalf of eligible employees. Employer contributions are tax deductible and employee contributions may be excluded from income for federal income tax purposes.
