If you own a business that received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan in 2020 or 2021, you can still qualify for an Employee Retention Credit (ERC) as long as certain criteria are met.
In order to claim ERC when you’ve already received a PPP loan, you must have qualifying earnings that were not included as payroll expenditures when you applied for PPP. This is designed to avoid any “double-dipping.”
There are some additional intricacies involved, and our Funding Specialists, with the added expertise of our CPA partner firm, Dark Horse CPAs, can help guide you through the qualification process.
You can receive up to $26,000 per W2 employee based on eligibility criteria and wage calculations during 2020 and 2021.
Unsure if your company qualifies for an ERC? Almost all with W2 employees during 2020 and 2021 are entitled.
The best way to claim the credit is to work with GetMyFunds Funding Specialists and CPAs who know how to handle the complexities and your unique situation.
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) allows businesses to receive a refundable tax credit for retaining employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since this is not a loan or lending program, employers do not have to pay it back.
The qualified wages, as defined by the IRS, are those that were paid to employees after March 12, 2020, and before January 1, 2022.
The first one is April 15, 2024, which is the last date you can apply for all quarters in 2020. The second is April 15, 2025, which is the deadline for all quarters in 2021.
Your company can still qualify for ERC if you have qualifying earnings that were not included as payroll expenditures when you applied for PPP.
Once you have gone through the process and we have filed your ERC claim, you should receive a refund check from the U.S. Treasury within approximately four to six months.
No. ERC is not a loan, it’s a refundable tax credit that you get to keep.
Most business owners likely can’t include their wages for the ERC. Family members’ wages are generally excluded as well.
