Employee Retention Credit (ERC)
During Covid-19, the administration introduced several programs to assist businesses that were in dire need of resources. We know that all businesses, large and small were affected by the pandemic in one way or another. Businesses were forced to scale down due to loss of workforce; many had to shut down temporarily or completely; businesses learn to pivot on demand; and millions looked for resources to help stay afloat, including PPP and other small loans and grants. Steve Barnett shares what is the Employee Retention Credit or ERC program and how it can work for you and your business. It’s a program created under the CARES Act as part of the federal government relief program to encourage and reward business owners that retain employees during the covid-19 pandemic. If eligible, you can get up to $26K per W2. Find out how.
