Compensation and benefits are on the minds of all employees — including your top executives. Key employees and business owners require unique benefit programs that combine health, life, disability, key person and long-term care insurance as well as succession planning, and asset and wealth protection.
Our team helps your craft an executive benefit strategy that takes into account, total compensation, succession planning, risk mitigation and wealth preservation. Key person insurance, buy/sell planning, individual disability carve-out plans, and other programs are all considered to enhance the value of total compensation for the executive and protect your business in the event of the retirement, death, or disability of a key executive.
We work with individuals and companies to develop non-traditional solutions to deferred compensation for retirement planning and long-term investments. We offer custom solutions that allow your key employees to save and invest in their futures, while remaining fully compliant with state and federal regulations. It is an additional benefit that can help you better compete for and retain top talent.
You and your key employees will be surrounded by a dedicated team to help provide personalized risk and financial management.
Our national Employee Benefits Compliance Team is dedicated to helping you stay abreast of fast-changing legislative and regulatory developments and guidance related to health and welfare plans that could impact your business.
Knowing that life’s only two certainties are death and taxes, let’s turn our attention to how the IRS determines independent contractor status. Previously, the IRS used to apply a 20-factor test to determine whether or not an individual could be classified as an independent contractor. A number of years ago they moved to what they call a “common-law” test that focuses on the degree of control the business exercises in achieving its purposes versus the degree of independence the worker has to actually perform the tasks themselves.
As described in IRS Publication 15-A, the IRS will closely examine each of the following three areas: “behavioral control, financial control, and the type of relationship of the parties.” Let’s take a look at each.
