Increase Cash Flow with the Employee Retention Credit

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is designed to encourage employers whose businesses have been negatively affected by COVID-19 to keep employees on payroll.

The Employee Retention Credit, established by the CARES Act, is a refundable tax credit of up to $5,000 per employee for 2020; the credit can be up to $7,000 per employee per quarter (for Q1 through to Q3) 2021. The ERC is available to businesses and other employers, including nonprofit organizations.
