Retirement Planning


The AICPA and Department of Labor have released an online video, “Choosing a Retirement Solution for Your Small Business,” to assist small employers and accountants with employee retirement program options. Using the real-life experiences of four small employers who operate Simplified Employee Pension, SIMPLE IRA and 401(k) plans, the video demonstrates the ease of establishing a retirement program for small business owners, the tax advantages of sponsoring a retirement plan, and the value for attracting and retaining a quality work force.

 

The free video may be downloaded at www.dol.gov/ebsa/compliance_assistance.html#23section7. A complimentary companion booklet, Choosing a Retirement Solution for Your Small Business , is available at www.dol.gov/ebsa or by calling the Employee Benefits Security Administration at 866-444-3272.
