Ways To Save As A Small Business Owner

SEP IRA: works like a traditional IRA but for business owners. Contributions are tax deductible and investments grow tax free until you withdraw. Note you must contribute the same percentage you stash away for your retirement for your employees if you have any. The max contribution for 2022 is $61,000 or 25% of your compensation.

Solo 401(K): Can’t have any employees with the exception of a spouse for this one. Hey bae! You can contribute up to $20,500 in 2022.

SIMPLE: You can have 100 employees or less for this one and you have to contribute every year. You also have to contribute to employees’ retirement plans. Contributions and growth are tax-deferred and the contribution limit for 2022 is $14,000.

If your cash flow won’t allow you to contribute more than $6,000, then you may want to skip the extra paperwork that comes with these accounts and open a traditional IRA account.
