Top Hat Plan for LLC

Did you find any answers to this issue? I have been researching this as well since my focus is on nonqualified benefit planning for small to mid-size companies and many of them are LLC's and S-Corps.

So far I have found that one of several forms of an Executive Split Dollar Plan are most effective for owners of entities with pass through taxing. I try to use the plan design that provides the best tax results in the end.

I'm sure you are probably already aware of this but there is a risk when dealing with companies that are closely held, whether it is a C-corp, S-corp or LLC, and the only participants in the plan are owners of the company. That risk is that the IRS will deem the nonqualified plan contributions a distribution instead of a plan contribution. I have never seen this happen but it is a risk that I always make my potential clients aware of and is also why I tend to favor the Executive Split Dollar Plan in many of these cases.

Any comments on this issue would be appreciated as I am always interest in new ways to assist my clients in their compensation and benefit needs!
