SEP Retirement Accounts

Simplified Employee Pensions (SEP accounts) are pension plans established by a business where the employer deposits contributions into an account for the employees of the company and are tax deductible by the employer. Any employer, including a sole proprietor with no employees, can establish a SEP account for their own benefit. The employer elects to pay all employees involved the same percent or the same dollar amount across the board.
