Small Business Retirement Plans in Duluth GA & Johns Creek GA

Offering a retirement plan for your employees could be one of the best things you'll do for your small business. The benefits aren't just in the future, either—as pointed out by the Department of Labor, starting a retirement plan offers immediate tax benefits in the form of deductibles, deferred taxation, and tax-free growth. Small employers can also usually take advantage of available tax credits that help offset the creation and administration of their plan, making it both easy and affordable to get started.

Types of Small Business Retirement Plans

If you're going to start offering small business retirement plans, you need to decide what type of plan(s) are actually going to be offered. There are a few different choices, each with their own advantages for different types of business owners.

401(k) Plans

A 401(k) plan—named after its designation by the IRS—is a special type of retirement account that allows employees to contribute some of their earnings into a savings plan. The three main forms of 401(k) plans available are Safe Harbor, Automatic Enrollment, and Traditional, all of which have important differences for small businesses. We encourage talking to a certified financial professional prior to selecting a plan in order to ensure that it's right for your company's needs, both now and in the future.

Profit Sharing Plans

If your company's income is variable, you can opt for what's known as a "profit sharing plan." These plans accept contributions at the discretion of employers, and typically do not require a certain amount of contributions each year. This is especially useful for startups, who may not have funds to spare as they work to establish themselves and deal with the challenges of creating a new business.

While all plans are required to file a Form 5500 each year to report their performance, the plans are accepted for businesses of any size and can even be used by companies that have other retirement plans in place. A Poteet & Poteet agents would be happy to discuss these and other options with you.

Guarantees and protections are subject to the claims paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

Our Providers

I have known Chuck Poteet for several years and have been his customer when he was at other firms. I was extremely happy when he told me that he was creating his own company. His level of understanding my business is unlike any other insurance professional I have known and done business. He is constantly looking for ways to help me manage risk and protect my profits.

“Five years ago I was looking for a new broker because my current broker wasn’t keeping pace with my rapid rate of growth. Chuck Poteet was referred to me by one of his clients, we met and immediately I knew he was abreast of the current risk scenarios I am faced with every day from my customers and employees. He designed a Property & Casualty and Healthcare proposal that are helping me maintain profits and valuable employees.”

“Earlier this year I was searching for a new health plan for my employees. I met Chuck Poteet and Gary Theriot at Poteet & Poteet, who were eager to answer my questions about group healthcare coverage, competitive plans and the future of healthcare in America. They did their research and came back with a proposal that fit my budget. Thank You Chuck and Gary!”
