Money Tree 12.5.14

So you know you want to buy a franchise but you don’t know how to finance it? There are plenty of options available to help you become your own boss. Becoming a leader in energy efficiency doesn’t have to just be a dream once you learn about your financing options. Your 401(k), IRA or other qualified retirement account can be the key to financing the purchase and start-up of your energy efficiency franchise. 401(k)/IRA rollover funding, also called “ROBS”, or Rollover for Business Start-ups, allows you to utilize the full potential of your existing retirement accounts, which enables you to eliminate or reduce the need for additional loans and provides the cash necessary to get your new business up and running.

  • Pay yourself a salary from the start
  • Secure funding fast – typically 2 to 3 weeks or less
  • Your credit score has no bearing on the process
  • Gain cash flow and build equity right away
  • Accrue no debt, no loan payments
  • Tax deferred and penalty-free
