Topic: Employee Retention Credit:  It’s Time to Take Another Look!

The CARES Act that came into effect in March 2020 contained many relief provisions for both individuals and businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  One of the lesser known and utilized relief provisions in that Act is the Employee Retention Credit (ERC). This credit became more relevant with the passing of the Consolidated Appropriations Act in December 2020 that contained massive changes in the original Employee Retention Credit that made it more relevant to businesses for 2020 as well as 2021.
