Start a 401(k) to Receive Rollovers Without Making Future Employer Contributions?

"Colleague (RIA firm) has a client whose income is from real estate holdings, so all passive income, but wants to start a Solo 401(k). The client knows they cannot contribute to a 401(k) because they have no W-2 income/earned income. They have no intention of making further contributions. They want use the Solo 401(k) to receive rollovers from large IRAs so they can begin doing backdoor Roths on their personal money and won't have to deal with aggregation rules of the large IRAs. Can do?"

Employee Terminated Mid-Year Prior to Retroactive Adoption of New Plan

"401(k) plan was adopted in September 2020, effective as of January 1, 2020 (for its PS portion). An employee terminated in August (i.e., prior to adoption of plan). She had over 10 Years of Service, so she is in the plan and receives a PS contribution, correct? (The sponsor is using New Comp, so the individual needs to receive something in order for testing to pass.)"
