If you are a small to mid-sized business owner, there is a tax credit available to you.

What is the Employee Retention Credit?

You could qualify for up to $26,000 per employee.

Not a loan and funds can be used for anything.

Can qualify even if you took the PPP loan.

What do you need to know?

  • The credit is in place to help businesses recover money from potential COVID losses (but increase in revenue during COVID does NOT disqualify you).
  • The government is giving up to 26k per employee to business owners that qualify.
  • The credit can still be claimed even if you took a PPP loan.
  • The ERC is NOT a loan, and the funds are yours to be used as you see fit.

How do you know if your business is eligible?

Even without a reduced revenue or being deemed “essential,” you could still qualify!

  • Change in business hours
  • Partial or full suspension of your operations
  • Shutdowns of your supply chain or vendors
  • Reduction in services offered
  • Reduction in workforce or employee workloads
  • A disruption in your business (division or department closures)
  • Inability to visit a client's job site
  • Suppliers were unable to make deliveries of critical goods or materials
  • Additional spacing requirements for employees and customers due to social distancing
  • Change in job roles/functions
  • Tasks or work that couldn't be done from home or while transitioning to remote work conditions
  • Lack of Travel or Lack of Group Meetings
