The Background

What Is ERC?

The Employee Retention Credit program is a fully refundable business tax credit for small and medium-sized businesses who paid payroll taxes in 2020 and Q1-Q3 of 2021. Additionally, recovery startups are potentially eligible for Q3 & Q4 2021.

This program was created under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), as a part of the federal government’s relief program to encourage and reward business owners who retained employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reduction Of Gross Receipts

The criteria for gross receipt reductions differ for 2020 and 2021. However, both are measured against the current quarter as compared to the 2019 pre-pandemic amounts.

Step 2

Submit documents for 2020-2021 payrolls and PPP funding received (if any).

Step 3

Substantiate eligibility and claim with IRS for their approval.


A Few Scenarios Where Employers
Have A High Chance Of Claiming ERC

Example #1

A themed diner can't serve customers on-site due to a state order closing restaurants and bars; however, it can still offer carry-out, drive-through, or delivery services. But 85% of their business came from on-site dining.

Thus, the diner has a high probability of being eligible for an ERC claim.

Example #2

A women's clothing store must close due to a government order. But the online sales system remains unaffected. As storefronts are a significant part of the business, its operations are considered partially suspended.

Thus, its clothing store might be eligible for a good erc claim depending on the employees she had to manage her store.

Example #3

A restaurant resumed indoor dining but with 6ft spaced tables, resulting in a 35% capacity reduction, 25% fewer orders, and 22% less revenue compared to 2019. The business remains partially suspended due to the government's order impacting indoor dining.

Thus, the restaurant may be eligible for an ERC claim.

Some Of Your Questions Answered….

ERC stands for Employee Retention Credit.

ERC is a generous stimulus program designed to help businesses retain their valued employees amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Step 1 – Fill out the Form to check eligibility.

  • Step 2 – Submit documents for 2020-2021 payrolls and PPP funding received (if any).

  • Step 3 – The IRS approves the application and transfers your ERC refund.

While timelines may vary from business to business, IRS documentation states that receiving your ERC refund could take 20 weeks minimum.


  • The Employee Retention Credit is a tax credit given in the form of a check by the IRS that does not need to be paid back.
  • Due to the IRS backlog, receiving ERC funds can take 20 weeks minimum.
  • There is no cost for ERC because it is a deduction you take on your quarterly tax return. However, if you use a tax filing service, fees may be associated.
  • ERC funding is still available, while PPP ended in May 2021.


  • The PPP was a forgivable business loan, that if used correctly, such as to fund payroll or pay rent, did not need to be repaid.
  • Funds were directly deposited into a bank account, usually within a week of loan approval.
  • There was no upfront cost for the PPP. Cost was only incurred if the loan wasn’t spent according to the loan term.


What Are CARES Act, ERC and PPP?

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act, is a bill that was passed in response to the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. Employee Retention Credit (ERC) and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) are two programs that fall under this Act.

ERC is a fully refundable business tax credit for small and medium-sized businesses that paid payroll taxes in 2020 and Q1-Q3 of 2021 (recovery startups potentially eligible for Q3 & Q4 2021) which was implemented to encourage and reward business owners who retained employees during the pandemic.

PPP was implemented by the Small Business Administration with support from the Department of the Treasury to provide small businesses with funds to pay up to 8 weeks of payroll costs including benefits.

Regardless of whether your business has a PPP loan or not, we can help you claim your ERC.
