While both strategies entail using retirement funds to finance a business, a ROBS transaction presents the following benefits over borrowing from your 401k.
· Unlike a loan from your 401k, there are no limits to the amount of retirement funds that you can invest in your business or franchise. While retirement fund loans are limited to 50% of the account balance not to exceed $50,000, there is no such limit in the case of a ROBS business financing strategy.
· Since you will not be taking a loan from your retirement account there is no required loan payments to your retirement accounts. For a new business, the ability to minimize debt may be the difference between success and failure.
