401K Business Financing Maine

Are you an aspiring entrepreneur looking for financing to open a business in Maine? If so, you may want to consider using our 401k Business Financing plan which allows you to invest your retirement funds in your business without paying taxes or penalties.

Benefits of 401k Business Financing Plan (Rollover as Business Startup (ROBS))

  • You can invest all of your retirement funds in the business without paying taxes or penalties. If you were to withdraw the funds from your retirement account, you will have to pay a 10% penalty (if you are under 59 ½) and income tax which often leaves only 60% or less of the amount withdrawn available to fund your business.
  • The funds invested in your business do not have to be paid back to your retirement account (i.e., it is not a loan).   With no repayment obligation, the business is able to keep more of the income in the business which can be very important to a growing startup business. Moreover, by investing your own funds you are able to independently fund your business and retain ownership and control.
  • There is no credit check required to access your retirement funds.
  • The funds are typically available for business financing in 10-15 business days.
  • Other than Roth IRA accounts, funds in virtually all types of retirement accounts are eligible including 401k, Traditional IRA, pension plans, government plans, etc.
