Retirement Account to Fund your Business
Fact: Most people believe that the only way you can use your retirement account (usually 401K or IRA) to purchase a business is to either pay a huge tax and penalty or take out a loan using the retirement account as collateral.
But, there is a better way!
Consider this: Lets pretend that your 401K money is currently invested in a stock,
for example, IBM Corporation. Now consider that instead of investing the money in IBM you change the investment to
YOUR-COMPANY, Inc. The money stays in your 401K account, but you simply change the way you invest it. What a great idea! But how can you do this? It is extremely unlikely that your accountant is qualified to do this for you. (In fact,
many accountants are unaware of this type of financing.) There are very specific IRS regulations that, if followed correctly, allow you to make this change in your retirement account investments.
Not a loan: You are NOT taking out a loan so there is nothing that you have to repay. This will make owning your new business much less stressful. As
your business makes money, the profits that you keep in the company
will continue to grow in your retirement account!
No taxes and penalties to get at the money: The money is technically staying in your retirement account so there are no taxes or penalties that you pay to remove it from your account.
The government helps you with the investment in the business, but you
get all the benefits: Let's say, for example, that you have $100K in your retirement account. Then you use the money to invest in a new business venture.
When you invest the $100K, how much of the money is really yours? $100K? Think about it. The $100K actually isn't all yours. Part of it will belong to the government one day because you have to eventually pay taxes on
the money. So, really, you are only
investing (depending on your tax bracket) about $60K - $70K of your
own money. The government is making up the rest of the investment.
Then, as the business makes money you can draw a salary and run
expenses through the company. You get the best of both worlds.
