Information for CPAs
Companies put their fringe benefit payments into our bona fide fringe trust, which is a traditional 401(k) plan. This means that companies using our trust get to use pre-tax dollars to handle their fringe obligations. The savings can be huge, and it’s completely compliant with all applicable laws, including:
- Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
- Internal Revenue Service rules and regulations outlined in Section 401(k)
- Davis-Bacon and Related Act regulations
Employees can then choose traditional benefits like health, FSA or a retirement plan or they can have the money distributed via direct deposit or to a pay card each week. If they in service withdraw funds, all required taxes are paid at that time and it’s reported to the IRS on a 1099-R, with all required information.
