Common Misconceptions About Employee Retention Credit Eligibility
What is ERC? Covid and Tax Credits
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) program – also referred to as Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) – emerged as a vital lifeline during the COVID-19 pandemic. Designed to support businesses impacted by COVID-19, it incentivizes employers who retained their workforce amid economic disruptions. The ERC provides substantial financial relief by offering tax credits – in cash! – to eligible employers who kept employees on their payroll during the coronavirus pandemic, helping them navigate reduced revenues and encouraging job retention.
Businesses Impacted by Covid – Is My Business Eligible?
The COVID-19 pandemic impacted various types of businesses, but some industries were particularly hard-hit. Sectors including (but not limited to) travel and hospitality (travel agencies, hotels, restaurants), retail and front facing businesses (especially non-essential stores), entertainment (cinemas, theaters), and events (conferences, concerts) experienced significant disruptions due to lockdowns, travel restrictions, and reduced consumer spending – many all the way through 2021. Whether in the form of lost revenue, suspension of activity, or other ERC-eligible hardships, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) often faced greater challenges compared to larger corporations due to limited resources.
Have I Missed the ERC Deadline?
Many people wonder about timing for Employee Retention Credits. 2023?! ERC may still be feasible times for certain businesses to apply for employee retention tax credits. If you are eligible, chances are you can still apply! The ERC program continues to play a crucial role in the post-COVID recovery.
Eligibility for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) program is determined based on the average number of full-time employees a business had in 2019. If a business had an average of fewer than 100 full-time employees in 2019, it might be eligible for the 2020 ERC. Similarly, if a business had an average of fewer than 500 full-time employees in 2019, it might be eligible for the 2021 ERC.
