In Part 3 of our Payroll series, it should be noted that in addition to the actual Payroll App sponsors at this year’s “Scaling New Heights” conference, there are a number of payroll-related Benefit Sponsors present. Be certain to check them out. And look for another Payroll Benefit feature in upcoming days.

Less than half of those employed by small businesses have access to a 401(k) or pension. Companies with small budgets who want 401(k) plans have been ignored or even laughed at by 401(k) providers.

401GO was founded to provide working Americans and small businesses greater financial freedom through inexpensive and worry-free, work-sponsored retirement plans.

401GO is a custom-built 401(k) platform focused on automation and technology to make it easier and much more affordable for companies to sponsor a 401(k) plan. Setup takes just minutes (not weeks), and it handles all the details.

With 401GO’s innovative automated technology, a simple, affordable and beneficial 401(k) plan is finally practical for small businesses. 401GO helps with the annual administration, which includes all required notifications to both employees participating and employers sponsoring the 401(k) plan, as well as authorizing distributions and loans, and the required tax filing (Form 5500).

It also has a separate investment fiduciary that reviews and monitors investments within the 401(k) plan. In other words, 401GO provides full-service to make 401(k) plans easy.

So, while 401GO has a mission of ensuring every American is ready for retirement, it realizes it cannot do it alone. It understands the critical role Partners play in helping businesses with their 401k.

Its Partner-based model is built to make life easy so Partners’ can focus on service rather than paperwork, billing and all the hassles of traditional plans. 401GO wants every plan it manages to have the support of a local Partner. In fact, if it gets a plan that was not referred from a Partner, it tries to pair it up with one of its trusted Partners.

That’s why 401GO makes it easy for accountants, bookkeepers and ProAdvisors to Partner with them to help offer 401(k) plans to clients.

If you want more information about 401GO for your clients, or how you can Partner with 401GO to make 401(k) plans available as part of your practice, stop by its booth on the exhibit hall floor during the conference. You also can head over to the 401GO website for more details.

Guideline is the easy, affordable 401(k) for today’s small businesses. Guideline’s full-service 401(k) plans make it easier and more affordable to offer employees the retirement benefits they deserve.

And with Intuit having selected Guideline to power its 401(k) offering within QuickBooks Online Payroll, it is easier than ever for employers to offer these benefits.

Now small business owners can set up their company’s 401(k) plan in minutes and automate the appropriate employee payroll deductions—all from within their QuickBooks account using Guideline’s single sign-on integration with QuickBooks Online Payroll.

Data is securely synced automatically, so updates and changes will be reflected in both places without any additional steps. As a QBO Payroll customer, the monthly base cost, plus small monthly cost per employee, includes full-service 401(k), 3(16) and 3(38) fiduciary, live US–based support, employee on-boarding, low-cost mutual funds, and simple employee and employer dashboards.

You can find out more about the 401(k) offerings from Guideline at its booth in the conference exhibit hall. In addition, you can visit its website. For more information about Intuit QuickBooks 401(k) offering powered by Guideline, check out this QuickBooks blog article.
