Did you know you can fund a franchise business by rolling over your 401(k) – and it’s approved by the IRS?

401(k) Funding – commonly called a Rollover as Business Startup (ROBS) or Self-Directed 401(k) – is a very unique non-debt funding opportunity. That’s right! It’s not a loan, it doesn’t have to be repaid, and there is no tax or penalty for using it.

Keep reading to learn more from the below helpful FAQs.

What are 401(k) Rollovers As Business Startups?

401(K) Rollovers are a means of funding a new business or franchise using pre-tax retirement funds as the source of the dollars. Entrepreneurs who choose this method simply take their retirement funds and “rollover” the funds into a new Plan that then invests in the company – your new franchise or small business!

How 401(k) Rollovers As Business Startups Work?

A Rollover involves four critical steps, among them the establishment of a C-Corporation and a 401(k) Plan. A qualified Third-Party Administrator is responsible for following the letter of the law as it relates to the design, installation, and administration of the Plan to remain in IRS compliance.

Why 401(k) Rollovers As Business Startups Make Sense?

A Rollover is not a loan and never has to be repaid, thus the business is starting out on day one with less debt (or even no debt) related to the financing of the business. Many choose this option as a means of preserving their cash. And – don’t miss this – many use a Rollover to satisfy the non-borrowed equity injection or cash reserves needed to meet lender requirements. A Rollover can be used in conjunction with a loan or as a stand-alone funding option.
