SEATTLE--()--ShareBuilder 401k, a leading small business retirement plan provider, is helping the self-employed get access to the powerful benefits of 401(k) plan by waiving the set-up charge. Now through July 1, new ShareBuilder Solo 401(k) clients will save up to $150 on setup, making it easier for owner-only businesses to enjoy all the retirement saving and tax benefits a 401(k) provides.

A recent survey by ShareBuilder 401k showed that 76% of small businesses do not offer 401(k) plans, with perceived costs to offer a plan being cited as a notable barrier. To help overcome those concerns, now through July 1, new ShareBuilder Solo 401(k) clients will benefit from free setup.

“Solo 401(k)s are great for any self-employed business looking to contribute at least $7,000 per year,” said Stuart Robertson, President and CEO of ShareBuilder 401k. “In a Solo 401(k), the owner is both the employer and employee, enabling the business owner to sock away $69,000 in 2024, which might drop them a tax bracket too.”

Solo 401(k) plans are open to the self-employed and any owner-only business without full-time employees. Spouses may also be included in a Solo 401(k). This plan offers both tax-deferred and Roth 401(k) options, as well as penalty-free 401(k) loans in case of an emergency.

Under current laws, as both the employer and employee, the owner can make up to $23,000 in contributions as an employee and another 20 to 25 percent of earnings based on their business type (up to the 2024 limit of $69,000 or $73,500 if over 50 years of age). In addition, unlike a Roth IRA, there is no income limit when choosing to contribute after-tax to the Roth 401(k) feature as an employee. Regulations are also set to enable employer contributions as Roth as well in 401(k)s.
