A profit sharing plan is a qualified defined contribution program that is funded by the employer and allows for discretionary annual contributions. A 401(k) feature can also be added to permit employees to partially fund the plan. A profit sharing plan is a suitable investment for any size company and is ideal for an employer who wants flexibility in costs and contributions. Businesses with unpredictable cash flows may find that a profit sharing plan works well for their business.
