A range of retirement plans for your workforce

Not sure which retirement plan is best for your business and employees? Looking for easy plan management and a broad range of investment options? With ADP, you gain an experienced team of professionals ready to help you choose and implement the right retirement plan. Read on to learn more about your plan choices with ADP.2

401(k) plans and investment choices

A 401(k) is a qualified profit-sharing plan that allows employees to contribute a portion of their wages to an individual account. You can also contribute to employees’ accounts — this is often done through a match of what an employee contributes.

If you choose a 401(k) plan, you’ll need to decide which funds your employee can choose to invest in. Whether your advisor is providing investment advisory services or you are considering hiring a third party for this support, ADP can accommodate either approach.2

SIMPLE IRA options for small businesses

A SIMPLE IRA (Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees) is a retirement plan that allows you and your employees to contribute to the plan. Employee contributions are tax-deferred. Each year, employers must make either a matching contribution or a nonelective contribution.

This type of plan can be an attractive option for small businesses, since it requires:

  • Less paperwork than a 401(k) plan
  • Fewer compliance burdens
  • No minimum participation

Administrative fees can be as little as $480, and you may qualify for a tax credit for start-up administrative costs of up to $500 for each of the first three years of the plan. Plus, you can deduct annual employer contributions to the plan as a business expense.3

For more information about how SIMPLE IRAs can benefit both you and your employees, contact us.

SEP IRA options for self-employed individuals and small business owners

If you are self-employed or a small business owner, you can make tax-deferred and tax-deductible employer contributions to a SEP IRA plan for each employee. SEP IRAs provide key benefits to business owners:

  • Contribution amounts are flexible
  • Contribution limits are higher than a traditional IRA
  • Contributions are deductible from the employer's income
  • No compliance filings are required
