No more plan document costs
Recently, the Department of Labor changed the law to require that every six years all 401(k) plan documents must be completely rewritten. This is referred to as a restatement. Making these amendments and restatements can cost your company thousands of dollars. With The Architect 401(k) Solution, The Finway Group takes on the responsibility, as ERISA 3(16) Plan Administrator and 4.02 Fiduciary, to maintain your plan document and keep it up to date at all times so you never have to worry about the qualified status of your plan document. This will save you time, money and worries.
No additional tax filing costs
As a plan sponsor, you are responsible for making sure your IRS Form 5500 is filed every year. As an adopting employer, under The Architect 401(k) Solution, we capture all the data necessary to file your tax return and we are responsible as 3(16) Plan Administrators for "signing your IRS Form 5500" and making sure your return gets filed correctly and on time.
No more compliance testing costs
Most non-Safe Harbor plans must comply with annual non-discrimination testing to ensure these plans do not favor the owners and/or highly compensated employees. The cost for testing can reach thousands of dollars each year. All plans continue to be tested and annual evaluations provided.

The Architect 401(k) Solution will free up valuable time for this key person, allowing them to focus on other important issues that may help the company be more efficient and profitable.
