Listen up entrepreneurs, the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a game-changer for businesses that managed to keep their employees during the Covid-19 crisis. This program, brought to you by the CARES Act, is a no-brainer – a refundable tax credit that can be claimed as a GRANT, not a loan. That’s right, you can get paid just for retaining your employees!
The ERC is available to both small and mid-sized businesses, and is based on the qualified wages and healthcare expenses you pay to your employees. In 2020, you could claim up to $5,000 per employee, but in 2021, it’s even better – you can receive up to $7,000 per employee per quarter! That’s an average of $26,000 per employee for this time period.
Don’t wait, take advantage of this opportunity today!
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a game changer for businesses hit hard by COVID-19. Thanks to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, this tax credit is helping businesses keep their employees and stay afloat during these challenging times.
The benefits of ERC are crystal clear – you get cold, hard cash from the IRS to help your business grow, either by investing in the company or hiring new team members. It’s a win-win.
To qualify for ERC, you need to be a business impacted by COVID-19 and have kept your employees on the payroll in 2020 and 2021. The amount of compensation you can receive depends on factors like wages paid and healthcare expenses, but you could see anywhere from $10,000 to $26,000 per employee.
Just because you took a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan doesn’t mean you can’t get ERC too – as long as you didn’t use the loan for the same wages ERC covers. And the best part is unlike PPP, the money you receive from ERC is NOT a loan and never needs to be paid back.
One thing to keep in mind: each quarter may have different eligibility requirements, so it’s smart to get advice from a financial advisor or an accredited intermediary. They can help you figure out your eligibility and maximize your compensation through ERC. That is why you want a trusted consulting company like Bottomline Concepts to help you apply for this money and get approved for the maximum amount of free government funding that you are legally eligible to receive.
