Single Member LLC Deferred the Maximum Amount in Roth Contributions, But Has a Net Loss on Schedule C

"New client. The owner took huge losses on his Schedule C due to COVID. He had a net profit on rental income on Schedule E, though. Passive Schedule E rental income cannot be counted for compensation for a retirement plan, correct? Any loopholes? He had deferred every week and maxed out for 2020."

Low Cost Defined Benefit Plans for Solo Practitioners?

"I'm not in the business but I'm a solo practitioner looking to set up DB + 401k paired plans. The annual fees can erode the returns quite a bit. I was wondering whether anyone can recommend low-cost offerings? Ideally, below $2k annually."
