You may be asking yourself, "Do I qualify for the ERC?" or "How do I qualify for the ERC?" You are not a alone. If you are a business owner and retained W2 employees during the pandemic there's a good chance you qualify, even if you were profitable during the pandemic. Your business must have had only ONE of the following circumstances to qualify for the ERC (Employee Retention Credit.)
A government authority required partial or full shutdown of your business during 2020 or 2021. This includes your operations being limited by commerce, inability to travel, or restrictions of group meetings. One of the most common examples is being forced to limit the number of employees or customers in your place of business.
Remember it's a reduction in gross receipts, not gross profit. Gross receipt reduction criteria are different for 2020 and 2021 but are measured against Q2, Q3, Q4 of 2020, and Q1, Q2, Q3 of 2021 as compared to 2019 pre-COVID amounts respectively.
Supply Chain Disruption can be anything from delayed supplies, changes in product, change in packaging, etc. For example, many restaurants weren’t able to get certain types of meat, paper towels or carryout containers during the pandemic. Delivery companies couldn’t get truck parts or scanners. Hotels were unable to receive furniture, towels and sheets due to ports being shut down, which delayed renovation plans. These impacts qualify a company regardless of revenue gain or loss.
While the general qualifications for the ERC program seem simple, the interpretation of each qualification is very complex. Our significant experience allows us to ensure we maximize any qualifications that may be available to your company.
How it works
The process is simple. You can get an estimate in less than 10 minutes. If you have your payroll paperwork available, or use a common payroll app like Gusto, Quickbooks etc, the entire submission process should take 30 - 45 minutes.
