Timing is everything with investing and the same could be said for setting up your practice’s 401(k) plan. It is the rare practice manager who recognizes the groundwork for adopting the plan is best done early in the year.

Considering a 401(k) plan involves eligible employees electing to defer salary, the more payroll periods there are available, the less noticeable the impact is on take home pay. Contributions must be sent to the retirement plan to be invested, so coordination with your payroll system will be necessary and eligible employees will need to decide how to invest.

So, when is the best time to consider setting up your practice’s new 401(k) plan for 2016? Quite simply, the answer is now.
