Solo 401(k) Investment Accounts

A solo 401(k) is an individual 401(k) designed for a business owner with no employees. IRS rules say you can’t contribute to a solo 401(k) if you have full-time employees, though you can use the plan to cover both you and your spouse.

The Solo 401(k) provides the ability and flexibility to direct and control how contributions are invested. Profit sharing contributions and annual contributions can be made to a Solo 401(k) account and these contributions can potentially be tax-deductible.

Solo 401(k) Contribution Limits for 2023

Up to $66,000 with an additional $7,500 catch-up contribution if 50 years or older. Contributions are pre-tax with the ability to reduce your taxable income for that year.

As the employee, you can contribute $22,500 in 2023 or 100% of your income, whichever is less. If you are 50 or older than you can contribute an additional $7,500 in 2023.

As the employer, you can make a profit-sharing contribution of up to 25% of your compensation.  There is a compensation limit of $330,00 in 2023.

If you are participating in a 401(k) at another job, the limit applies to contributions across all 401(k) plans.  You will need to consult with your tax advisor to confirm your contributions to a Solo 401(k) plan.
