Employee Retention Credit
If your business felt the impact of COVID-19, with employees facing operational restrictions, travel limitations, or group meeting constraints, you might be eligible for an Employee Retention Credit.
The opportunity to secure a cash refund based on your eligible employee retention credits is still available. Don’t hesitate to contact us today if you require clarification or need to assess your business’s eligibility. Our Squire professionals are here to help your business substantiate your claim.
The business must have had under 100 full time employees in 2019 to qualify for the 2020 credit, and under 500 full time employees in 2019 to qualify for the 2021 credit.
You can still qualify for the ERC even if you received PPP loans.
