About the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) Program
What is the ERC?
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a stimulus program aimed at assisting businesses that retained their employees during the Covid-19 pandemic. Established by the CARES Act, this refundable tax credit is available to both small and mid-sized businesses. It is based on qualified wages and healthcare provided to employees.
- Up to $26,000 per employee
- Available for 2020 and the first 3 quarters of 2021
- Qualify through Revenue Decline or Suspension of Operations due to Government Orders
- No funding limit
How much can you claim?
For 2020, you can claim up to $5,000 per employee. In 2021, the credit can reach up to $7,000 per employee per quarter.
To qualify, your business must have been negatively impacted in either of the following ways:
- Partial or full government-mandated shutdown during 2020 or 2021.
- Reduction in gross receipts compared to pre-COVID-19 levels.
Initially, the ERC was exclusive to businesses that hadn't received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan. However, recent legislation permits eligibility for both programs.
