How 401(k)/IRA Business Funding Works
Navigate ROBS 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.
Working With Some Amazing Clients
"With my first helicopter, I have a return of about 35% on my investment. Where can you get that in the stock market? It's impossible. Having your own business is great. Having Benetrends by your side to guide you is even better. It's a win-win for everybody."
Three if by Air, Inc.
“We initially signed up with a competitor, but after one year of extremely poor service from them, we opted to switch to Benetrends Financial
(and the Rainmaker Plan®).
A decision we have not regretted.”

"Benetrends helped me find multiple banks who would provide sources for (SBA) funding, most of whom I had never even heard of...
I was pleasantly surprised by all of them."
"Our financial representatives introduced us to Benetrends Financial, and after a few conversations, we knew we were in good hands. Benetrends has been facilitating the dreams for many people – for many years. We found the staff listened to our needs and understood that we were prepared and anxious to move forward."
