HOW IT WORKS

PLAN AMENDMENTS

Laws change frequently and plans need to be amended to comply with the most recent requirements. We'll make sure your plan is current by keeping ourselves up to date on all IRS and Government changes.

RESTATEMENTS

A plan using a custom document must generally be restated every 5 years based on the company's federal ID. We'll make sure your plan stays compliant by taking care of the work and updating you with the results.

RETROACTIVE AMENDMENTS

Despite everyone's best efforts, mistakes can happen. If they do, LRS can help you correct the problem and retain the benefits of your qualified plan, before the IRS or other agencies get involved.

The SECURE Act Allows For Easier ROBS Maintenance

The SECURE Act greatly enhances the ability for small and medium-sized employers to maintain retirement programs for their employees with the creation of a new retirement vehicle called a Pooled Employer Plan. Reduce expenses, simplify decision-making, and decrease the amount of time and effort you devote to maintaining your ROBS plan by adopting a pooled employer plan through Leading Plan Solutions™!

We even run compliance reviews of your consolidated payroll report vs your retirement plan employee census.

Large Payroll Relief         

Payroll contribution processing from additional accounts, companies, units, or departments! Our base services process up to 26 payrolls from a single bank account. If you process payroll more frequently (e.g. weekly) or you process payroll for more than 1 entity, unit, or, division you will need to secure our Large Payroll Relief services.

Enhanced Calculations   

If your payroll solution is not able to calculate company matching contributions each pay period, we can handle it! We’ll log into your payroll solution, download and retrieve payroll contribution reports, enter payroll and contribution information into contribution processing systems, pull contributions from your designated account, and do compliance reviews of your consolidated payroll report.

Just the Basics                 

If your payroll solution only provides payroll and contribution information in a locked PDF or similar format that makes it difficult to submit contribution information, we can set up customized payroll contribution files required for necessary data upload  into our systems.
