Are you thinking about setting up a retirement plan for yourself and your employees, but you’re worried about the administrative burdens involved in providing a traditional pension plan? Two relatively easy options are a SEP or a SIMPLE plan. When you set up a SEP for yourself and your employees, you’ll make deductible contributions to each employee’s SEP-IRA. The maximum amount of deductible contributions that you can make to an employee’s SEP-IRA, and that he or she can exclude from income, is the lesser of 25% of compensation and $58,000 for 2021. For 2021, SIMPLE deferrals are up to $13,500 plus an additional $3,000 catch-up contributions for employees age 50 and older.
