Little-Known Business-Funding Option Awaits Your Discovery

Unconventional IRA structure enables early, tax-free access to retirement funds

Although thousands have discovered this golden opportunity, some of the savviest investors are still unaware of this remarkable funding option: You can utilize your IRA monies before retirement age to purchase a business without incurring early distribution penalties.

Thanks to the government's 1974 ERISA laws, you can self-direct your retirement funds into investments that include the purchase of a business and/or franchise. This option is ideal for those who wish to take control of their employment futures by going into business for themselves. It's also great for those who want to avoid taking out loans to fund a start-up business. While IRA funds could be used in this way for the past three decades, it's only been in recent years that investors have begun seizing this opportunity.

By using an IRA structure similar to that of a self-directed IRA, your retirement account can both finance your entrepreneurial endeavors and effectively earn you a higher return within your account. And if your retirement account can fulfill the purchase price of the business in its entirety, you may be able to avoid incurring any debt altogether.

The benefits of tapping into IRA funds to finance your purchase are many. This structure enables you to lower overhead, increase business success rates, expand your retirement account, and even offer a 401(k) to your employees. It also allows for multi-party purchases, so you can buy your business with partners, if you choose.

Using your own IRA money to purchase the business provides a means for company profits to be used as investment returns for your retirement account. Consequently, your IRA grows along with the success of our business. The tax-deferred contributions you make to your account from your company profits could potentially save you thousands of dollars in taxes.

Restructuring your retirement account to allow for a business or franchise purchase will require the services of account facilitators skilled in this area. Although more and more investors are discovering this means to business funding, there are still only a handful of companies that specialize in creating these account structures. Most of them, like Guidant Financial Group, a leading provider of retirement account services headquartered in Bellevue, Wash., will offer free consultations.

"An important part of our job is explaining to clients how the structure works in relationship to their particular business goals," says David Nilssen, Guidant's president and CEO. "We then structure the account with their specific needs in mind."

Financing your business with your own retirement funds takes the anxiety out of this first step in business ownership . . . and it puts you on the fast-track to greater success. For further information, click here.
