Attract and retain top talent – Offering deferred compensation plans can keep ’em happy
Abstract: Even in these times, attracting and retaining top executive talent is crucial. An appealing compensation package may be just the ticket, and deferred compensation can be an important part of that package. In considering compensation, companies have two options: qualified deferred compensation (QDC) plans or nonqualified deferred compensation (NQDC) plans. Both can benefit your top employees; the major difference between the plans is how they affect your business. In particular, companies must pay attention to Section 409A compliance rules.
