While pre-end or back-end sales charges are relatively rare for retirement plans, another type of return fee is used. These backend fees are usually included in an insurance contract or registration service contract. This return tax is sometimes referred to as a conditional deferred sales tax (CDSC). More and more sponsors of individual account pension plans (z.B Code Section 401 (k) plans) enter into agreements with organizations that are committed to providing individual investment advice to plan members. In exchange for fees paid either by the plan sponsor, pension plan assets or on the accounts of members who choose to use consulting services, the organization agrees to be in trust for the pension plan. In our experience, these fees – on average – range from 0.40% to 0.75% of the assets invested. The broken down service charges are usually calculated on the basis of the crisis and can be paid by the sponsor, pension plan or participant. These are royalties for certain services listed in the Kreditors service contract. Some fees are based on members (i.e. fees charged per member), while others are calculated for a given benefit for the entire pension plan. Depending on the circumstances, a CDSC may be the same for all participants in a group plan or be specific to each participant in an individual agreement.
(Individual agreements are often found in section 403 (b)) plans In most cases, the timing of a CDSC begins from the date of the initial transfer of retirement assets into the contract. However, in some insurance contracts, each pension contribution may have its own schedule. These third-party companies specialize in providing transfer agent services and many companies appreciate the cost of hiring a third party. Transfer agents perform a detailed and difficult task, especially for large companies with large shareholders. For example, it is not uncommon for a publicly traded company to issue millions of shares. Someone has to keep all the relevant information for these millions of shares.
