ROBS Program FAQ: I am looking to use 401k business financing to finance the purchase of an existing wine shop.  This deal might fall through and now I am looking to buy a chocolate shop – is that ok?

It is certainly acceptable from a 401k business financing perspective if the C-corporation that is funded with your retirement starts or buys another business.

In other words, you won’t be locked in from a ROBS 401K business financing perspective to your original business plan. As long as the business is an active operating company (e.g. providing goods and/or services) and you are buying the business from an unrelated person, it is compatible with the ROBS program.
