The process is easy for all businesses, and any business that has employees can qualify. Claim ERC today.
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a refundable payroll tax credit designed to help employers offset the costs of keeping employees on their payroll during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ERC is a payroll tax credit for employers, up to a maximum of $5,000 per employee in 2020, and $21,000 per employee in 2021. Eligible employers can claim the ERC for wages paid to any employee who works for the employer for any period of time during the eligible period, regardless of how much or how little they work.
The credit is available to employers with fewer than 500 full time employees, including nonprofits. The ERC is designed to incentivize employers to keep employees on their payroll during the pandemic and help them cover the costs associated with doing so.
Established by the CARES Act and altered by additional acts passed by Congress in 2020 and 2021, ERC is available retroactively to both small and mid-sized businesses. It is based on qualified wages and healthcare paid to employees.
Many employers qualify for ERC. This includes universities, colleges, 501(c) organizations, and hospitals.
Qualifying organizations can qualify for one of the following reasons:
The full or partial suspension of operations due to government orders that limited commerce, travel or group meetings due to Covid-19.
Gross receipt reduction criteria is different for 2020 and 2021, but is measured against the same calendar quarter in 2019.
A business can be eligible for one quarter and not another or a date range within a quarter and not the entire quarter.
Even if you received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, you can qualify for ERC. PPP dollars used toward employee wages will not be used to calculate ERC.
You could be considered a Recovery Startup Business if you started a business after February 15, 2020, and be eligible for a $50,000 per quarter ERC for the third and fourth quarters of 2021.
With likely changes to IRS processing approaching and an “open door” for retroactive claims through 2024-2025, it’s time for your business to determine its eligibility and submit thorough, accurate ERC claimsthat maximize the credit for your company.
