A solo defined benefit (Solo DB) can generate tax deductions of up to $150,000 or more per year. 

SoloDB is a Defined Benefit Plan

This is a special type of tax-qualified retirement plan that provides participants with a promised retirement benefit on reaching retirement age and which requires employers to contribute annually to fund the benefit promised to all employees.

Benefit is Defined

A Defined Benefit Plan promises to pay a specified benefit amount (annuity or lump sum) to eligible participants after they meet certain service and eligibility criteria.

Annual Contributions

Generally, an annual contribution is required to ensure the plan has enough assets to fulfill the promised benefit.

Contribution Level Can Be Targeted

At the plan’s inception, employers can choose how much of an annual contribution they can afford and the benefit can be defined thus. This amount can be increased or reduced to accommodate future changes in revenue.

*REQUIRED CONTRIBUTION When you open your Plan you are committing to make your contribution each year. This amount may vary, particularly if your investments have had large gains or losses. Although you can amend your plan to reduce your retirement target, the important goal is to attain the amount you want to have when you stop working.
