In 2020, Congress passed the CARES Act that gave employers two mutually exclusive loan options: the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). COVID-19 relief legislation was extended and the ERC was enhanced, allowing employers who received a PPP loan in 2020 to retroactively claim the credit. CPAs have been 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! In this webcast, you’ll grasp the latest guidance, 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.
