New choices for business owners

If you own a business and you offer a 401(k) or similar retirement plan to your employees, youll want to stay current on the various changes affecting these types of accounts. And in 2024, you may find some interesting new developments to consider.These changes are part of the SECURE 2.0 Act, enacted at the end of 2022. And while some parts of the law went into effect in 2023 such as the new tax credit for employer contributions to start-up retirement plans with 100 or fewer employees  others were only enacted this year.            Here are some of these changes that may interest you: New starter 401(k)/403(b)  If you havent already established a retirement plan, you can now offer a starter 401(k) or safe harbor 403(b) plan to employees who meet age and service requirements. These plans have lower contribution limits ($6,000 per year, or $7,000 for those 50 or older) than a typical 401(k) or 403(b) and employers cant make matching or nonelective contributions. These plans are low-cost and easy to administer but the credit for employer contributions doesnt apply, as these contributions arent allowed, and since start-up costs are low, the tax credit for these costs will be correspondingly lower than theyd be for a full-scale 401(k) plan. Matches for student loan payments  Its not easy for young employees to save for retirement and pay back student loans. To help address this problem, Congress included a provision in Secure 2.0 that allows employers the option to provide matching contributions to employees retirement plans (401(k), 403(b), 457(b) and SIMPLE IRAs) when these employees make qualified student loan payments. Of course, if you offer this match for student loan payments, your costs will likely increase, although these matching contributions are tax deductible. In any case, you may want to balance any additional expense with the potential benefit of attracting and retaining employees, particularly those who have recently graduated from college. 401(k) eligibility for part-time employees  Part-time employees who are at least 21 years old and have at least 500 hours of service in three consecutive years must now be eligible to contribute to an existing 401(k) plan. The inclusion of part-time employees could lead to higher business expenses for you, depending on the amount of contributions you may make to employees plans. Again, though, youd be offering a benefit that could be attractive to quality part-time employees.             Emergency savings account  Many people, especially those who dont earn high incomes, have trouble building up emergency funds they can tap for unexpected costs, such as a major home or car repair or large medical expenses. Now, if you offer a 401(k), 403(b) or 457(b) plan, you can include a pension-linked emergency savings account (PLESA) that allows non-highly compensated employees to save up to $2,500, a figure that will be indexed for inflation in the future. PLESA allows for tax-free monthly withdrawals without incurring a 10% tax penalty. PLESA contributions are made on an after-tax (Roth) basis and must be matched at the same rate as other employee contributions.             You may want to consult with your tax and financial professionals to determine how these changes may affect what you want to do with your retirement plan. The more you know, the better your decisions likely will be. Chad Choate III, AAMS828 3rd Avenue WestBradenton, FL  34205941-462-2445Chad.choate@edwardjones.com
