Use your retirement assets to fund your business without taxes or penalties through the BORSA ™ Plan
What is a BORSA™ Plan?
BORSA™ (Business Owner's Retirement Savings Account), simply put, is a self directed qualified retirement plan that allows you to purchase stock in your employer's corporation (your own small business). The proceeds from the sale of this stock can be used to fund the purchase of a franchise, business start-up, or business property using your holdings in a 401(a) pension, profiting sharing 401(k), 403(b), 457, or IRA Rollover. Through the utilization of a BORSA™, these purchases can be accomplished without distributions, taxes, penalties, or the use of loans.

To understand how you can finance your new business with your 401k or other qualified plan you must understand how to access your savings without taxes, penalties, or interest, you must understand two bodies of law. The two bodies of law that govern the BORSA™ structure are the:
For purposes of the BORSA™ structure, ERISA governs who is eligible and what you can or can not do in a qualified plan, while the IRC addresses what is deductible going into the plan and how money is taxed when it is taken out of the plan.* The graphic on the right depicts how assets move within the BORSA™.
*This structure can save you 50% or more on your retirement/investment from being eroded by state and federal tax authorities.
