There are many aspects of a business’s ability to thrive that are predictable. Just as in life, businesses can be negatively impacted by things that can’t be predicted and even preventive. There are legal documents like Buy-Sell Agreements, and insurance products like Key Man Insurance, and technology protocols like continuity and redundancy services.
The 831(b) is little known tool that businesses can use to ‘self-insure’ with pre-tax dollars. Much like the 401(k) tax code allows an employer to set aside tax-deferred dollars for retirement, the 831(b) tax code allows a business to set aside tax-deferred dollars for underinsured and/or uninsured risks. The similarities are clear and business owners should consider the risk mitigation advantages, before the next pandemic, natural disaster, or global supply crisis.
