Arming you with the latest guidance and practical advice for the enhanced ERC

In 2020, due to COVID-19, Congress passed the CARES Act. The CARES Act gave employers two mutually exclusive incentives to choose from in order to help keep employees on their payroll during the pandemic: the ERC and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

A second round of COVID-19 relief was passed in December in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. This latest round of relief enhances and extends the ERC and allows employers who received a PPP loan in 2020 to retroactively claim the credit.

Meanwhile, CPAs are tasked with digesting the vast amounts of information relating to these enhancements, to help their clients apply the new laws. It can be overwhelming to say the least!

By joining this webcast, we will arm you with the latest guidance and practical advice and examples, so that you can help your clients navigate the enhanced ERC, even in situations where your clients received a PPP loan and loan forgiveness.
