deductible fees?

Recommended Posts

Small plan - 8 participants including 1 HCE (owner), total assets around $175K.

Plan sponsor made a deposit of EE deferrals, and check bounced.  Sponsor replaced bad check and funds are in the plan.  However, asset custodian charged small fee ($25) for returned check.  Must plan sponsor reimburse plan for the returned check fee or can it be netted against earnings?  What do the regs say?

Thanks!

No question the employer should reimburse the plan for the fee it caused by bouncing the check.  The more important question is what happened to the EMPLOYEE assets in the account since they bounced a check of deferrals?  Did the employer use employee contributions to cover business expenses?

RatherBeGolfing - lost earnings were calculated on late deposit of employee deferrals - Employer to deposit lost earnings, plus Form 5330 prepared to calculate excise tax due

 

Thanks.
