2. Tax-Free Transfer of Retirement Funds

Transfer retirement funds (IRA, SEP-IRA, 401(k), 403(b), etc.) tax-free from your current custodian to any financial institution or credit union who can serve as your custodian for no fee. Direct the current custodian to transfer the retirement funds to your new Solo 401(k) Plan bank account. This transfer, also called a direct rollover, is tax-free. The retirement tax professionals at the IRA Financial Group will assist you in completing this task in an expedited and tax-free manner. With a Solo 401(k) Plan with checkbook control you no longer have to pay excessive custodian fees based on account value and transaction fees. Instead, you can use any local bank or credit union to serve as your custodian. By using a Solo 401(k) Plan with checkbook control you can take advantage of all the benefits of self-directing your retirement assets without incurring excessive custodian fees and custodian created delays.

IRA Financial Group will assist you in completing all the necessary custodian documents so your retirement funds are transferred to a local bank account established in the name of your Solo 401(k) Plan quickly and without any tax.

3. Open Local Trust Bank Account

Open a local bank account for your 401(k) Plan at any bank or credit union of your choice. Our in-house tax and ERISA professionals will guide you through the process.

4. Checkbook Control

As the trustee of the Solo 401(k) Plan, you will have the freedom to make all investment decisions for your Solo 401(k) Plan (Checkbook Control). A Solo 401(k) plan allows you to eliminate the expense and delays associated with an IRA custodian, enabling you to act quickly when the right investment opportunity presents itself. As trustee of the Solo 401(k) Plan, you will be able to write a check or wire money from the 401(k) bank account to make an Investment.

5. Tax-Free Investment is Made

The Investment is then made in the name of your 401(k) account. As trustee and administrator, you will have “checkbook control” to make investments on behalf of your plan.
