What is the Employee Retention Credit (ERC)?
ERC is a payroll tax refund born out of the same COVID relief bill as PPP which incentivized businesses who kept employees on payroll during the pandemic. Originally, companies were limited on their ability to claim either PPP or ERC, but not both. In early 2021, the rules changed and now your business can claim ERC even if you received PPP funds.
How is ERC different from PPP?
PPP was a forgivable loan. ERC returns to the business payroll taxes they already paid. Once you receive the ERC funds from the US Treasury, no further action is required on your part.
How is the refund calculated?
Determining the proper amount that you are entitled to is a complex accounting process that requires an expert analogous to an orthopedic surgeon or cardiologist. One of the reasons that we partnered with Innovation Refunds is that their expert CPAs and Tax Attorneys determine exactly how much money your business is eligible to receive. Helping businesses to properly unlock these government incentives is Innovation Refunds' specialty.
Is there a cost?
For Texas Bank and Trust customers, there is no upfront cost to determine if your business qualifies, and if so, to receive what amount of money. Innovation Refunds, on average, invests 14 hours of expert CPA/Attorney time, at their expense, to determine your eligibility. You will never be charged for this time. If you decide to move forward, Innovation Refunds shares in a percentage of the money that you actually receive from the government.
How much time do I have?
Time is of the essence. We all know that government funded programs are subject to change. As of today, you can obtain these funds but for how long remains uncertain. PPP, Restaurant Revitalization, and other funds ran out without notice. Don't delay; be sure to claim your spot in line and receive funds rightfully owed to you.
