  • News Release - Employee Retention Credit: 4/25/2022

    Topic: Employee Retention Credit (ERC)

    What is the ERC:  The Employee Retention Credit was introduced in the CARES Act (same legislation as the PPP program), with the objective of incentivizing business owners to keep employees working during the pandemic.  In its current state, the credit is worth up to $26,000 per employee for qualifying businesses.
    Why you should join:

    Changes to legislation have resulted in confusion and underutilization of the program
    Most businesses participated in at least one round of the Paycheck Protection Program, but are either unaware, do not have a clear understanding or have incorrectly determined ineligibility for the ERC.   

    Key Questions:

    • Are you familiar with the Employee Retention Credit?
    • Has your business qualified for all quarters available in 2020 and 2021?
    • Have you incorrectly disqualified yourself?
