I read a timely article in Businessweek (12/22/08 issue). http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/08_51/b4113064369970.htm?chan=magazine+channel_what%27s+next
The article describes creating a corporation, the newly
formed entity starting a 401k plan, rolling existing retirement funds into the
401k and then investing in the corporation from the 401k plan.
The fees quoted are on the high end. If you want a more pocket book friendly
alternative go to, http://sites.google.com/site/garyandersoncpa/fees-and-pricing.
The devil is in the details, so get competent professional
help on this strategy.
