ERC (Employee Retention Credit)

The ERC (Employee Retention Credit) is a generous stimulus program designed to bolster businesses that were able to retain their w2 employees during the pandemic. It was rolled out during the Cares Act, which was the same legislation that approved the PPP loans. At the time, businesses had to choose between the PPP and the ERC, however, the rules changed allowing businesses to receive both.

Business must be under 100 employees to qualify for 2020 and under 500 employees for 2021.

Remember: Even if your business revenue increased in 2020/2021, you may still be eligible for this program.

What Are the Next Steps?
