Sara: It is possible to use retirement funds and have them switched over to a self directed IRA which you can then use as a down payment for the purchase of the child care center or other type of business that you want to purchase. I have been successful in assisting one of my clients accomplish this exact thing in purchasing a child care center in NJ. It is somewhat complicated and you have to have a third party who specializes in this who can handle this for you. You want to make sure you have someone who fully understands the proper way to accomplish this to avoid having to pay any taxes or penalties. Done correctly it is a powerful source for the funds needed to finance a down payment for a business purchase. You can also when you decide to sell the business, roll the funds & profits back out of the business. My client made a great profit on his first child care center and now has even more money to invest, and he is planning to do this again.

Contact me directly and I will be happy to explain what we did and put you in touch with the right people to get the job done for you.

Hello sarah,

there are specific companies that specialize in assisting buyers in how to utilize their 401K funds in a tax free manner for business acquisitions only.It must be done very specifically and properly so as not to trigger a tax event-but it can definitely be done.
