But what type of retirement plan is the right fit for your business? There are several types to choose from, and the options can be confusing. For example, some business retirement plans are better for sole proprietors, while others may be more appropriate for businesses with up to 100 employees.
Understanding the differences in the plan types is an important exercise. If you have been operating a plan that doesn't match your personal and business needs, you could be missing out on important tax benefits, or possibly making mistakes regarding employee contributions.
