How much does ROBS/RAPS cost?
It’s a question we often hear from aspiring entrepreneurs looking to start or buy a business using their retirement funds. The answer is not as straightforward as you might think, as the price depends on the option you choose and the value you receive in return.
At Benetrends, we offer two main ROBS (Rollovers as Business Startups) options: Rainmaker and Rainmaker (Roth) Advantage Plan. The Rainmaker option has a setup fee of $4995 and an administration fee of $155 per month, while the Rainmaker (Roth) Advantage Plan has a setup fee of $9995 and an administration fee of $195 per month. While these fees may seem high at first glance, it’s important to remember that the net cost is often zero when you factor in the value you receive.
When evaluating the cost of a ROBS plan, it’s essential to consider the value you receive in return. At Benetrends, we provide cost-saving solutions that often reduce or eliminate costs. For example, all incorporation services, legal, administrative, and state filing fees are included in our ROBS plans, so there are no added CPA setup costs. Additionally, all expenses related to establishing minutes, bylaws, issuance, and management of stock investments are covered, as is the creation and customization of the retirement plan.

On-going administration, record-keeping, and annual required reports are included, as is the annual assistance with determining the Corporation’s Fair Market Value.in the annual required Fair Market Valuation. Moreover, our fees often qualify for added tax deductions and tax credits.
