As a business owner, you know how important retaining talented and valuable employees is. However, unforeseen circumstances can make it challenging for businesses to keep their workforce intact. This is where the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) comes in - a tax credit that can help you keep your employees and save your business money.

BC CPA & Consulting offers a wide range of tax compliance and consulting services, including guidance on the ERC. Here's what you need to know about this valuable tax credit.

What is the Employee Retention Credit?
The ERC is a refundable tax credit that was created to help businesses impacted by unforeseen circumstances. It was introduced in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and has been extended and expanded by subsequent legislation.

The credit is designed to encourage businesses to keep employees on their payroll by providing a tax credit of up to $7,000 per employee per quarter. This credit can be used to offset payroll taxes or be claimed as a refund.

Who is eligible for the Employee Retention Credit?
To be eligible for the ERC, your business must have experienced one of two situations:
Full or partial suspension of operations due to unforeseen circumstances
A significant decline in gross receipts (50% or more) in any quarter compared to the same quarter in the previous year

If your business meets either of these requirements, you may be eligible for the ERC.
