Greetings, Beonice, and welcome. You asked:

. I recently
incorporated an S-corporation. I was
under the impression that "small businesses"
are allowed to have Keogh or money-purchase
plans. But, now that I am reading the
descriptions of each more carefully, I
notice that they seem to assume that a
small business is one that is either a
sole proprietorship or partnership. Doesn't
an S-corp. qualify as a small business?
Especially as I am the sole owner/director/employee
of my corporation?


You may set up a SEP, SIMPLE, defined benefit or defined contribution (401k, money purchase, profit sharing) plan for your corporation if you otherwise meet the criteria for doing so. Many providers among the mutual fund families and brokerages would be most happy to take your money and establish a plan for you. If you're not sure what to use, you might engage the services of a fee-only Certified Financial Planner in your area who specializes in retirement planning for small business owners. There are many who do.

Regards..Pixy
