An executive bonus plan is offered as a bonus to the employee, which is directly deposited into a life insurance policy. The bonus is considered to be compensation and is deductible to the employer and taxable to the employee.
That’s why it’s important to have an insurance policy that will help keep a business afloat even without its most valuable employees. Key person insurance is a life insurance policy that a business takes out on its most valuable employee or employees. A policy can also include a rider for disability coverage to help if a key employee is disabled.
Many business owners choose one of two buy/sell agreement life insurance plans. They include:
A cross purchase plan – A cross purchase agreement depends on each business owner buying a life insurance policy on each of the other owners. Then, when an owner dies, the remaining owners use the payout from the life insurance policy to buy the deceased owner’s share of the business.
An entity purchase, or stock redemption, plan – Each employee-owner enters into an agreement with the business to sell their interest in the business. As part of the agreement, the business buys life insurance policies on the lives of each owner. The business pays the premiums and therefore exists as the owner and beneficiary of the policy. When an employee-owner dies, that share of the company passes to the heirs of his or her estate. Then the business can use the policy’s death benefit to buy the interest from the estate.
