Take advantage of this plan’s generous contribution limits to save quickly and reduce taxes.
Business owner with no full-time employees, or that person and his or her spouse.
The business owner wears two hats in a solo 401k plan: employee and employer. Contributions can be made to the plan in both capacities. Total contributions to a participant’s account, not counting catch-up contributions for those age 50 and over, cannot exceed $54,000 for 2017.
Because you are the trustee of the plan, you can invest in alternative investments such as real estate, notes, tax liens, metals and private equity. Of course, you can also continue investing in equities if you so choose too.
This Solo 401k plan allows for personal loans. This is essential for growing companies. The maximum amount that the plan can permit as a loan is (1) the greater of $10,000 or 50% of your vested account balance, or (2) $50,000, whichever is less. For example, if a participant has an account balance of $80,000, the maximum amount that he or she can borrow from the account is $40,000
Bank/Brokerage Account/Checkbook Control
You can choose your bank to establish a checking account for your Solo 401k, which will be used to make all alternative investment purchases (e.g., real estate, private investments, private loans, etc.) by simply writing a check. Alternatively, we can also help you open a brokerage account with checkbook control at Fidelity Investments or Schwab which is ideal for those who want to continue investing in equities.
Earned income from self-employment from a business in which your services materially helped to produce the income. Self-employment can include part-time work.
