Unfortunately, you cannot terminate your SIMPLE IRA Plan or choose to suspend contributions in the middle of the year, regardless of the financial status of your business.
According to the IRS, SIMPLE IRAs cannot be maintained for less than a full calendar year, except in cases where a new SIMPLE IRA is established after the beginning of the year. As such, you must make the contributions which were promised to your employees when you provided them with the notification.
