Which Small Businesses Are Now Eligible to Apply For the ERC (Employee Retention Credit)?

Sep 3, 2021 12:02:14 PM / by CSI Accounting Staff posted in small business taxes, small business payroll, small business accounting

The ERC is a great COVID relief effort, so why aren't there more eligible small businesses applying?

In this blog post, we discuss what it is, how it's expanded, and if you're eligible. Most importantly, we talk about how CSI Accounting & Payroll has helped applicants in the past (and can help you as well!) - no hassles, no worries.

Blog - Which Small Businesses Are Eligible to Apply For the ERC

Many Eligible Businesses, Few Applicants

Why are so many eligible businesses not taking advantage of this incredible deal?

Do they not know that they're eligible? Do they not know that they can earn up to a $100,000 tax refund that does not need to be repaid? Do they not know that CSI Accounting & Payroll can walk them through the process? We've already helped many of our clients get large sums of COVID relief money. We make it easy!

How much money has CSI Accounting & Payroll gotten for our clients?

We've already helped our clients obtain critical COVID relief funds - over $10 million in total!
  • PPP loan 1 provided our clients who applied with over $6 million.
  • PPP loan 2 brought in over $3 million.
  • The ERC has hit over $1 million.
Why are the ERC obtained funds so much lower than both rounds of PPP loans? There's a lack of applicants!
 
How has the ERC changed?
 

When COVID relief efforts first began, the ERC slipped under the radar due to the media's focus on stimulus checks and PPP loans. Similar to PPP loans, the ERC incentivizes businesses to keep employees on payroll, but unlike PPP loans, it does not need to be repaid.

In one of our previous blog posts, we discuss how the government has continually increased the ERC's outreach and benefits. The IRS says that the ERC is now expanding eligibility to include recovery startup businesses. New businesses (started on or after February 15th, 2020) can also earn up to a $100,000 tax refund. 

So... do you qualify for the ERC?

New businesses (started on or after 02/15/20) - find out if you qualify here.
Older businesses - you may still be eligible! Find out if you qualify here.
