Employee Retention Credit

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) was created during the coronavirus pandemic to encourage businesses to keep their employees and was introduced as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

While the ERC has proven beneficial to many businesses, the guidance surrounding this credit is lengthy and can be complicated based on your business’ circumstances.

To date, we have done over 100 ERC projects and helped our clients get back more than $85M in ERC funds.

  • Restaurants
  • Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Colleges & Universities
  • Nonprofits
  • Many More

  • Gross Receipts Reduction of 50% on 2020 or 20% in 2021 compared to 2019
  • Full or partial suspension of operations due to a COVID-related government order
  • Limiting commerce
  • Travel or group meeting
  • Inability to procure essential supplies
