The Employee Retention Credit is a Payroll Tax Credit that you may be eligible for, even if you already have received PPP funds. The credit was initially signed into law March 2020 as part of the CARES Act, and has been expanded upon with the Consolidated Appropriations Act in December 2020 and the American Rescue Plan Act in June 2021.

Business Owners can receive a refundable credit up to $5,000 per employee in 2020, and $7,000 per quarter per employee (excluding 4th quarter), in 2021 for qualified wages.

Who is eligible to claim the ERC?

It can be difficult for one to determine on your own if you are eligible for these funds, but there are multiple ways to qualify. We are the experts in understanding the mandate of your local area that can make it easier to receive the ERC funds if you don't meet the revenue requirements.
