I provide my employees 100% of their health care, offer retirement accounts, flex accounts, continuing education and disability insurance but I am not allowed to have many of those benefits.

You might want to talk to a CPA or change CPAs. I'm self-employed as well. I have a self-funded pension plan to which I can contribute up to $42k/year. I can do continuing education that is paid via my company with pre-tax dollars, I could do disability through the company but I don't. If the company paid for it, I would have to pay taxes on the benefits. But since I pay for it, benefits are tax free.
