Employee Retention Credit (ERC) Support & Consulting

What is the Employee Retention Credit?

The Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA), passed in December 2020, changes and updates to the prior economic relief legislation for COVID-19. The CAA clarifies and expands the Employee Retention Credit that was created by the CARES Act. All employers should review this legislation change to see if their 2020 payroll costs may qualify and review their situation to see if they can qualify for 2021.

Refunds may be available for $5,000 per employee for 2020, and potentially $14,000 per employee for 2021.
