401k Plans

For most companies, the question isn’t whether you should offer a 401k Plan. It’s how to make the plan a win-win for both the employer and employees.

401k Plans have grown in popularity for several reasons: the tax advantages they offer both employers and employees, their flexibility and low cost to employers, and their role in attracting and retaining employees.

Smart business owners know how important that last point is. A company whose staff is both “the best” and best-motivated is likely to be most successful. And with 401k Plans (and company-matching contributions) consistently ranking as key motivators, it’s essential that your company have a 401k Plan and optimize it.

  • plan design to meet your company’s objectives
  • tax savings for the owners, management, and employees
  • educating and motivating employees to contribute to it
  • time and knowledge required of your staff to maintain it
  • cost to launch and maintain the plan
