What is the Employee Retention Credit?

Our world shut down in 2020 and part of 2021. COVID-19 completely halted our ability to do business and unfortunately it was many of the small businesses that were affected the most. Now that the world is back open the federal government has been able to fully digest the damage that was done. With the ERC program businesses have the ability to tap into government funds that most don’t even know exist.

ERC funding brings these credits front as center to qualifying businesses and have been able to grant businesses millions of dollars through our optimized application submission process. Through this stimulus, businesses that were able to retain a good sizeof their employee bases through these traumatic times are being rewarded.  However, the tax code and qualifications are not easy to understand so most businesses get discouraged trying to qualify.

That’s where we step in due to our expertise. Highlights and details include:

Frequently Asked Questions

If I receive the ERC Credit do I have to repay it?

No. The ERC Credit is tax credit that you are entitled to and is not repayable to the federal government.

What is ERC Funding’s Fee?

Our fee structure is based on your percentage of the credit you receive. The range is 15-30% depending on the complexity of the filing.

Why not just have my CPA file instead of ERC Funding?

There are over 70,000 pages of tax code; it’s impossible to be an expert on all of them. ERC is all we do. It’s like the difference between your family doctor and a neurologist. By concentrating on this one program, we understand the intricacies and nuances involved in determining your eligibility and accurately calculating your refunds.

Can I get ERC Funds if I already took the PPP?

Yes, The Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020, enacted December 27, 2020, modified the ERC credit rules. One of the modifications included allowing a company to have a PPP loan and still take advantage of the ERC credit. However, you can't use the same dollar for dollar funds. We take this into account when processing your ERC credit.

My revenue went up in 2020, can I still qualify for the ERC program?

Yes actually. There are two possible qualifications for 2020: revenue reduction, or a "full or partial shutdown of your business due to COVID-19". Specifically the IRS describes this as "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." Below are several examples of qualifying events:

Example 1: A restaurant must close or limit its on-site dining. Such as having to close down every other table, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Example 2: A business that needs to meet with clients in person and has to cancel meetings due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Example 3: A business has to reduce their operating hours because COVID-19 restrictions and cleaning requirements.

Example 4: A business had delayed production timelines caused by supply chain disruptions.

I'm a CPA or a payroll company, can I refer my clients to ERC Specialists?

Yes, please follow our referral partner signup link here or you can contact us directly here.

Will the ERC funds run out?

No, again this is not a lending program. All eligible employers will receive the funds and they will not run out. However, the soon the better for the filing.

How will I make payment?

Since the credit check will may not arrive for 20 weeks minimum according to the IRS filings on theERC we offer two options of payment.

Option 1: You can pay the fee upfront and will receive a discount. With this payment option if no credit is received by the IRS we will refund 100% what you paid via our 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Option 2: Our fee will be paid upon receipt of the credit.

I'm getting more in ERC Credit than I paid in taxes?

One thing to keep in mind is that the program is based on the payroll taxes paid and not income tax. So this could be common for many business.

As an owner do my wages, or the wages of any family member I employ qualify?

Possibly. If the wages of a owner are over 50% they will not qualify. In addition, the W2 wages of any immediate family will not qualify. If it is sub 50% then the owners wages will qualify as well as the immediate family member

Can I qualify for the ERC if I'm self employed?

If you are a majority owner (over 50%) of your company then your wages will not qualify

How long does it take to get my ERC Credit?

Once our process is completed (usually happens in 2 weeks) then as the IRS has communicated to us there is a minimum of a 20 week turnaround of the ERC funds. So conservatively the answer is 22 weeks.

Is the ERC Credit taxable?

No, since the ERC credit is not considered federal income tax. However, you must reduce any deductible wage expense in the amount of the credit you received. All this being said, be sure to consult your CPA for anything tax related.
