Owning a Self-Directed IRA LLC

Self-Directed IRA LLCAre you interested in starting an LLC that receives many of the benefits of an IRA? A self-directed IRA LLC is one possible path on your journey to investing success with American IRA! Otherwise known as a “single-member IRA owned LLC” or “checkbook control IRA”, this classification means that you use funds from a self-directed IRA to purchase 100% of an LLC that you set up with the help of your professionals.

Once this account has been set up, you can then purchase assets, make investments, or write checks on behalf of your IRA – multi-member LLCs work much the same way, and setting one up with American IRA is only one call away. A self-directed IRA LLC can be advantageous when making either large or numerous investments since you don’t have to obtain pre-approval from an account custodian every time you make an IRA transaction.

According to most state laws, one of the main benefits of an IRA LLC is closely associated with its limited liability. For example, say your IRA invests half of its money in an LLC and the other half in mutual funds. If the LLC experiences a liability issue, the mutual funds would still be protected.

With that in mind, there are a number of additional factors to consider. For example, a self-directed IRA LLC offers the following benefits:

-Checkbook control

-Ease of use

-Lower administration fees

-Tax-free and tax-deferred gains

 

The following aspects should also be considered:

-Higher set-up fees

-Full responsibility for complying with IRS rules and regulations, including prohibited transactions

-Responsibility for completing required IRS compliance documents
