If you’re an entrepreneur looking for small business capital, you should take note of a type of self-reliant funding. This has become ever more prevalent in today’s economic environment, as bank loans and other sources of capital have become more difficult to obtain. This self-reliant funding allows you to invest your retirement funds in your own business – tax-deferred and penalty-free – and can help get you off to a good start by building equity and reducing the need for debt and cash flow – important factors for the long-term success of your business. An equally important benefit of this type of funding is the establishment of a qualified retirement plan for your business that can help you and your employees save for the future.

A small business is a business that is privately owned and operated, with a small number of employees and relatively low volume of sales. Small businesses are normally privately owned corporations, partnerships, or sole proprietorships. The legal definition of "small" varies by country and by industry, ranging from fewer than 15 employees under the Australian Fair Work Act 2009, 50 employees in the European Union,[2] and fewer than 500 employees to qualify for many U.S. Small Business Administration programs.[1] Small businesses can also be classified according to other methods such as sales, assets, or net profits.

Small businesses are common in many countries, depending on the economic system in operation. Typical examples include: convenience stores, other small shops (such as a bakery or delicatessen), hairdressers, tradesmen, lawyers, accountants, restaurants, guest houses, photographers, small-scale manufacturing, and online business, such as web design and programming, etc
