I'm working on a partner in a partnership who did not draw any salary, his net income is showing on the K-1. However he did make 401k contributions. Since there was no salary does this mean the 401k deduction that would normally appear on the W-2 is lost?

A partner in a partnership doesn't get a salary or W-2. They are taxed on the the income of the partnership on the K-1.

I see, the SEP may have been the better way to go. Well in this particular case a 401k was established. Does this equate to a lost deduction?
