    The eligibility criteria for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) are multifaceted, revolving around specific timelines, operational disruptions, and financial impacts caused by significant events or crises. Businesses, including tax-exempt organizations, that experienced a full or partial suspension of operations due to governmental orders, or significant declines in gross receipts during specified periods, may be eligible. Furthermore, certain recovery startup businesses established after a particular date may also qualify. However, the criteria and calculation methodologies have evolved with legislative changes and updates to the ERC program. It is critical to partner with experienced professionals like those at Lowest Fee ERC to navigate these complexities. Our team of skilled CPAs, backed by a track record of processing hundreds of millions in ERC credits, is ready to assess your eligibility and ensure you receive the maximum credit possible. Please reach out to us for a comprehensive evaluation of your business's potential to benefit from the ERC program.
    Eligibility for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is broad and can encompass a variety of businesses. The ERC is intended for businesses that have faced economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes businesses of all sizes, from small startups to larger corporations, across a wide array of industries. To be eligible for the ERC, a business must fall into one of two categories: Businesses that experienced a full or partial shutdown: If a government order related to COVID-19 forced your business to fully or partially suspend operations, you may be eligible for the ERC. Businesses that experienced a significant decline in gross receipts: If your business experienced a significant reduction in gross receipts during a calendar quarter compared to the same quarter in 2019, you could be eligible. For 2020, the reduction had to be over 50%, while for 2021, the reduction only needed to be over 20%. It's important to note that certain public institutions, government entities, and businesses that received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan may not be eligible for the ERC. Furthermore, all wages that qualify for the ERC must have been paid after March 12, 2020, and before January 1, 2022.
    Calculating the exact amount you can claim through the ERC depends on a variety of factors, including the number of employees you have, their wages, and the specific time periods your business was affected by the pandemic. For example, in 2020, the ERC allowed you to claim 50% of qualifying wages, up to $10,000 per employee for the entire year. This means you could potentially receive a credit of up to $5,000 per employee for 2020. However, in 2021, the ERC was expanded to allow businesses to claim 70% of qualifying wages, up to $10,000 per employee for each quarter. This increased the potential credit to $7,000 per employee per quarter, or up to $28,000 per employee for the full year 2021. These figures demonstrate the significant financial relief the ERC can provide for businesses during these challenging times. But claiming this credit isn't always straightforward. It requires careful calculations and a deep understanding of the tax code and ERC regulations. That's where Lowest Fee ERC comes in. We specialize in helping businesses claim the maximum ERC they're entitled to, all while charging less in fees than our competitors. We believe in providing you with the full picture of your potential claim, not just an estimate that doesn't take into account all the factors that could increase your credit. Let's say that Business A is a small business that was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021. They have 20 employees, each earning an average of $10,000 per quarter. Because of the changes to the ERC in 2021, Business A can claim 70% of qualifying wages for each employee per quarter. This means they can claim $7,000 (70% of $10,000) per employee per quarter. With 20 employees, this equates to a potential ERC of $140,000 per quarter ($7,000 per employee * 20 employees). However, the ERC doesn't stop there. Because this credit is available for each quarter of 2021, Business A could potentially claim this amount for each of the four quarters in the year. This means that, over the course of 2021, Business A could claim up to $560,000 in ERCs ($140,000 per quarter * 4 quarters). Now, let's consider the fees. Many ERC providers charge a significant percentage of the credit as their fee, which can quickly eat into the financial relief that the ERC provides. But at Lowest Fee ERC, we understand the importance of every dollar for your business. We strive to provide the most affordable service, charging less in fees than our competitors. This means that Business A can retain more of their ERC, putting those funds back into their business and their employees.
    Applying for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) requires comprehensive documentation to substantiate eligibility and the amount of the credit claimed. Here's a brief overview of the types of financial and business records a company would need to gather for the ERC application: Payroll Records: Payroll documentation is crucial, as the ERC is calculated based on qualified wages paid to employees. This can include W-2 forms, wage and tax statements, payroll registers, and other documents that show how much you paid your employees during the eligible quarters. Financial Statements: These could include profit and loss statements or comparable financial reports that demonstrate a significant decline in gross receipts for a particular quarter compared to the same quarter in 2019. Business Records: Documentation demonstrating that the business was fully or partially suspended due to a governmental order related to COVID-19 is required if you are claiming the ERC based on this criterion. This could include closure notices, press releases or news articles about local closures, or copies of the relevant government shutdown orders. Employee Health and Safety Measures: If your business incurred costs for protective equipment or any other health and safety improvements to comply with COVID-19 guidelines, these expenses may qualify as ""health plan expenses"" that can be included in the ERC calculation. You should keep invoices, receipts, or other documentation of these expenses. Records of Other COVID-19 Relief Received: You'll need to provide records of any other COVID-19 relief your business received, such as Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, as certain restrictions apply when claiming the ERC. Tax Forms: Companies will need to provide filled IRS forms, such as Form 941 (Employer's Quarterly Federal Tax Return), to report and claim the ERC. Remember, it's crucial to maintain detailed and accurate records not only for the application process but also in case of any future audits by the IRS. Working with a knowledgeable provider like Lowest Fee ERC can help streamline the process and ensure that you've got all the necessary documentation in order. As always, consult with a tax professional or the IRS for the most current and applicable rules. The information provided here is based on the most recent data available.

    Yes, businesses that received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan can also apply for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC). However, it's important to note that the same wages cannot be counted for both the PPP forgiveness and the ERC. Here's how the two programs can work together: PPP Loan: The primary purpose of the PPP loan was to provide businesses with funds to maintain payroll during the COVID-19 pandemic. If used correctly, the loan can be fully forgiven. The key point is that wages used for PPP loan forgiveness cannot be used to calculate the ERC. ERC: The ERC is a fully refundable tax credit designed to encourage businesses to keep employees on their payroll. The credit is based on qualifying wages paid to employees during periods of business interruption due to COVID-19. The interplay between the PPP and ERC can be complex, and this is where the expertise of Lowest Fee ERC comes in. Our team will meticulously analyze your financial and payroll data to maximize both your PPP forgiveness and ERC, ensuring that no eligible wage is overlooked. We're here to help your business navigate these programs and secure the maximum benefits available.
