Retirement Plans Fresno, CA

The retirement consultants at Kerr Payroll Solutions in Fresno, CA can help you determine which kind of retirement plan is suitable for your company. The most common questions we hear: What kind of retirement plan do I need? How can I minimize my tax bill? Do I have to match my employee contributions? Let the retirement plan consultants at Kerr Payroll help you. 

Traditional 401(k)

A 401(k) is maybe the most flexible retirement plan option for employees and plan sponsors. With a 401(k) a participant can make full or partial matches, save for retirement through pretax and Roth 401(k) contributions, take loans or self direct. 

Safe Harbor 401(k)

Safe Harbor 401(k) plans could be the solution you need because they automatically meet certain nondiscrimination (ERISA) testing, maximizes salary deferrals for high-wage employees and they are easy to administer.

Solo 401(k)

A Solo 401(k) allows solo business owners with no employees (except for certain family members) to maximize salary deferrals without any compliance testing.


A Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employers is great for employers with less than 25 employees and who do not need plan flexibility or the desire for profit sharing. The difference being a 401(k) has a $19,000 (2019)annual limit and a SIMPLE IRA $13,000 (2019)

Profit Share Plans

A profit share plan can be a powerful retention tool for businesses who want to retain talent and divide up discretionary contributions among employees.  Profit share contributions are not mandatory and can even benefit higher compensated employees or owners without discrimination issues.


A Simplified Employee Pension provides self employed or small business owners with an easy method to contribute toward their employees retirement as well as their own. With a SEP IRA a business contributes to employees with an annual max of $56,000 (2019) or 25% of employees pay; whichever is greater.

Defined Benefit Plans

Like the name implies: a defined benefit allows an employer to predetermine how much he or she wants in the future. With the help of an actuary and financial planning you could contribute in excess of $200,000 annually when combined with a 401(k) and profit share plan.
