ROBS Process

How ROBS 401(k)/IRA Business Funding Works

Navigate ROBS 401(k) small business funding with help from the experts at Benetrends. We will work with you every step of the way, from the free funding consultation to the day you open your business doors and beyond! We are here to see your business succeed and create a lasting partnership for success.

  • SET UP A C CORPORATION

    The process begins with establishing a new corporation using the proper legal structure to support the establishment and operation of the company’s qualified retirement plan.

  • DESIGN A NEW QUALIFIED RETIREMENT PLAN

    To avoid early withdrawal penalties and preserve tax-deferred status, a new retirement plan is created for which you’ll move your existing funds. We will customize your plan, taking into account your business needs.

  • TRANSFER YOUR RETIREMENT FUNDS INTO THE NEW PLAN

    If you’re rolling over funds from a 401(k), your plan custodian will work with you to fill out temporary IRA documents. If funds are being rolled from an existing IRA, your plan custodian will initiate the movement of those funds.

  • USE THE RETIREMENT PLAN’S FUNDS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

    The rollover funds can now be invested in the newly formed C Corporation by purchasing stock in the corporation. You have the capital to start, purchase or recapitalize your new small business or franchise.

We Optimize Your Equity

With our proven, custom plans, you’ll minimize debt and enhance cash flow from the start to gain business equity.

When I approached Benetrends I was in a dire situation. I called many accountants and TPA and most would not touch the case or wanted a retainer in the thousands… Not Benetrends! They reviewed my case and put together a plan to bring me back into compliance at a reasonable price and within the required timelines. Their compliance officer assured me I was not a lost cause, and they could bring my business back into compliance from 2018 through 2021. They educated me, earned my trust and I would recommend them to any small business planning to start and/or has a 401K PSP.
