Qualifying for Employee Retention Credits

Businesses and non-profit entities who expect a 20% or greater decline in gross receipts in Q1 and/or Q2 of 2021 as compared to the same quarter of 2019, may qualify for credits of up to $14k per employee in 2021. The maximum credits are available for employees whose wages and qualified health care expenses are more than $10k each quarter. These wages can now include bonus compensation.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act stimulus package signed on December 29, 2020 includes an expansion of the Employee Retention Tax Credit. There may be credits available to your business depending on a number of factors.

If your organization:

  • Received PPP funds in 2020 and had fewer than 100 FTEs?

OR

  • Paid people in 2020 who were NOT working while receiving pay?

OR

  • Has fewer than 500 FTEs and expects revenue to be down 20% or more in Q1 2021 as compared to Q1 2019 OR as compared to Q4 2020?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above, we can help you determine if you should pursue credits through the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) program.
