Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
If you are maintaining the books and would like to record this than you will record a AJE for the 401K amount (based on your Sch C income.)
Entry will be
401K Contribution(Expense Acct) Dr
401K Payable(Current liability Acct) Cr - since you will pay the amount in this year.
Any money you take out of the LLC can be recorded as Owners Draw. It is a good idea to record these in the LLC so that you know your accumulated earnings and your business profitability.
Let me know if you have any question.

Yes, you will not report the 401K expense from the LLC's P&L on Sch C. But you will report this as an adjustment on Form 1040(Page 1)
