How does the SECURE Act help small businesses?

Passed in 2019, the Secure Act includes incentives in the form of tax credits for businesses to start a retirement plan. These credits can apply to a variety of retirement plans including 401(k)’s, SEP IRA’s and Simple IRA’s. Here are the start-up tax credits at a glance:

  • The tax credit can apply to the first three years the retirement plan is in place
  • Credit = 50% of employer plan costs
  • Maximum credit is $500, or up to $5000 based on formula
  • Formula: $250 x the number of eligible (non-highly compensated employees), not to exceed $5000
