No. This is not a loan. It’s a refundable tax credit. Your ERC claim comes in the form of a check from the IRS.
Our performance-based fee is on a percentage of the credit recovered. We calculate and provide our fee with our free analysis. The fee is typically 20% which is very affordable since you do not need to pay us a penny until you receive the refund.
Of course. The challenge is the ERC credit is taken on your payroll returns and not through your business income tax returns, which is what most CPA’s handle. Because of this most CPA’s don’t process this credit, unless they process your payroll in house. This is also a big reason why this credit is so underutilized. Since CPA’s don’t typically handle it and they are the tax experts, it has mostly fallen in a middle ground where few are able to effectively process the credit. Interestingly, we receive a large portion of our clients from CPA’s.
Our accounting referral partners in our network have decades of payroll experience, which has allowed them to specifically focus to understanding how to calculate the ERC refund, which most CPA’s have not had the time to sit down and study how to properly perform the calculations.
Yes. The Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020, enacted December 27, 2020, modified the ERC credit rules. One of the modifications included allowing a company to have a PPP loan and still take advantage of the ERC credit. However, you can’t use the same dollar for dollar funds. We take this into account when processing your ERC credit.
Yes! There are two possible qualifications for 2020: revenue reduction, or a “full or partial shutdown of your business due to COVID-19”. Specifically the IRS describes this as “A government authority required partial or full shutdown of your business during 2020 or 2021. This includes your operations being limited by commerce, inability to travel or restrictions of group meetings.” Below are several examples of qualifying events:
Example 1: A restaurant must close or limit its on-site dining. Such as having to close down every other table, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Example 2: A business that needs to meet with clients in person and has to cancel meetings due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Example 3: A business has to reduce their operating hours because COVID-19 restrictions and cleaning requirements.
Example 4: A business had delayed production timelines caused by supply chain disruptions.
Example 5: A business with a planned event has to cancel that event, or restrict the amount of people who can attend due to COVID-19 restrictions.
