Cafeteria Plan/Flex Benefits
A Section 125 plan, or a cafeteria plan, allows employers to provide their employees with a choice between cash and certain qualified benefits without adverse tax consequences.
Employees who participate in a cafeteria plan can pay for qualified benefits, such as group health insurance, on a pretax basis. This reduces both the employees’ and the employer’s tax liability.

As a business owner, you can participate in an HSA as long as you make contributions in an after-tax manner. You can still take a deduction on your personal tax return, but you may not deduct the same expense as a business deduction.
