A profit sharing plan can mean a lot of different things. The type that we are going to talk about today is related to a retirement plan.

And there are really three main types of contributions an employer can make to a retirement plan.

The first is a match contribution. The second is a safe harbor contribution. And the third is a profit sharing contribution.

Which weโ€™re going to talk little bit more about today.

The camera zooms in as the woman continues to speak.

Profit sharing is a type of flexible contribution that allows business owners to save up to the IRS maximum of $64,500 per year. That contribution also is tax deductible and grows tax deferred.

Profit sharing is a strategic tool for a business owner because it is both discretionary and flexible.

A business owner can decide year-to-year whether to contribute and how much to contribute.

It also has a 6-year vesting schedule. Which means that a business owner can incentivize employee retention.

We are small business retirement specialists, which means we have the knowledge and expertise to help business owners implement these sophisticated strategies.

When our clients do better. We do better.
