Employee Retention Credit

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a valuable tax incentive that can help businesses retain employees and navigate through challenging times. This credit was introduced as part of the CARES Act and has been expanded and extended under subsequent legislation, making it a powerful tool for businesses looking to recover and thrive.

What is the Employee Retention Credit?

The ERC is a refundable tax credit designed to encourage businesses to retain employees during periods of economic uncertainty. You can claim up to $21,000 credit per employee for the entire tax year 2021, and $5,000 credit per employee for the tax year 2020. It provides eligible employers with a significant tax benefit that can help offset the financial burden of keeping employees on the payroll.

Key Benefits of the Employee Retention Credit:

  • Financial Relief: The ERC can provide a substantial tax credit which can be used to offset employment taxes or be claimed as a refund if it exceeds the tax liability.
  • Expanded Eligibility: The eligibility criteria for the ERC have been expanded, allowing more businesses to qualify. Even if you received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, you may still be eligible for the ERC, providing an additional avenue for financial support.
  • Retroactive Benefits: The ERC is available retroactively, meaning eligible businesses can claim the credit for qualified wages paid as far back as March 13, 2020. This can result in significant savings and a boost to your cash flow.
  • Quarterly Savings: The credit is available for each quarter ($7,000 per employee per quarter in 2021), allowing you to maximize your benefits. By taking advantage of the ERC, you can reduce your employment tax liability or potentially receive a refund to reinvest in your business.
