Feb. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- Seattle-based IRA rollover specialists at Silverstone are assisting individual investors to make significant returns within tax-advantaged retirement accounts. Those with connections to small businesses in need of funding can tap their IRA to provide promissory notes, private equity funding and even working capital lines of credit. IRA holders in the United States currently have over $1 trillion in their IRA and 401(k) accounts. A whopping 45% of this money is invested in the general market in securities like stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Luckily the government allows for self-directed accounts so untapped IRA money can be used to fund small business, buy an investment property or finance a gold IRA.

Self-Directed IRA: Proper Structuring

Unfortunately, not just any individual retirement account can be used to invest in these alternative assets. With proper structuring, however, investors will be able to tap thousands so as to pull their money from the market and place it in everything from gold to private equity deals.

Unlike a normal traditional or Roth IRA a self-directed IRA is structured in such a way that the account can legally invest in alternative assets. The account is structured with the use of a Limited Liability Company and all assets from previous 401(k) and IRAs are converted and transferred into the account. In this way, the owner of the IRA avoids earl withdrawal penalties and the taxes and fees that will be charged for doing a prohibited transaction.

Be Wary of Prohibited Transactions and Fraud

There are a number of rules associated with establishing a self-directed IRA. Among them is the need to avoid disqualifying persons and disqualifying transactions. As a holder of a self-directed IRA, you will not be allowed to invest in someone in your direct family line. That is fathers, grandfathers, children and grandchildren are off limits. You can also not invest with siblings or spouses. In addition, the account limits you to particular types of transactions. For instance, you are not allowed to invest in collectibles.

Another component of these types of accounts that makes them less-than-desirable is the ability to do fraudulent activities with them. Because the funds are so easily accessed, it makes it more easy to steal directly from someone’s retirement funds. Silverstone, has put particular preference on warning people of the ease of committing fraud within the IRA.

“Whatever you choose to invest in, you retain more of your investment income without having to pay taxes to the IRS.”
