I work for a small partnership with a few employees. What would be the best method for a small employer to provide before tax contributions for its employees toward a retirement plan?

I see that the options are:
* IRA
* SEP-IRA
* SIMPLE
* Keogh (401k?)

It looks like the largest contributions are allowed under the Keogh, but I'm thinking it would be a lot of paperwork??? If I can persuade my employer to setup one of these options are we limited to traditional IRA methods (Mutuals…) or can we open up a corporate brokerage account to pool our money and pursue investing in a more Foolish manner?

Thanks.
