What is the Employee Retention Credit (ERC)?

Get up to $26,000 per employee with the new ERC tax credit!


Time is running out and If your business has been affected by the pandemic you will qualify. Contact us for more detail.


ERC is a stimulus program designed to help those businesses that were able to retain their employees during the Covid-19 pandemic.


Established by the CARES Act, it is a refundable tax credit – a grant, not a loan – that you can claim for your business. The ERC is available to both small and mid-sized businesses. It is based on qualified wages and healthcare paid to employees.


● Available for 2020 and the first 3 quarters of 2021

● Qualify with decreased revenue or COVID event

● You can claim up to $5,000 per employee for 2020. For 2021, the credit can be up to $7,000 per employee per quarter.


How do you know if your business is eligible?

To qualify, your business must have been negatively impacted in either of the following ways:


  1. A government authority required partial or full shutdown of your business during 2020 or 2021. This includes your operations being limited by commerce, inability to travel or restrictions of group meetings.

  2. Gross receipt reduction criteria is different for 2020 and 2021, but is measured against the current quarter as compared to 2019 pre-COVID amounts.
