NFPs Must Manage Gross Receipts for Employee Retention Credit
Posted by Nate Smith on Thu, Apr 1, 2021 @ 11:44 AM

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) was originally enacted as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The ERC was extended and expanded by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA), and then again by the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. Eligible employers can obtain the ERC with respect to wages and health plan costs paid during periods of disruption brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. The most common way to become an eligible employer under the CARES Act, the CAA, and the ARP Act is to satisfy a gross receipts test. Until recently, not-for-profit (NFP) entities faced significant uncertainty about the manner in which gross receipts is defined for purposes of the ERC. Although the CAA provided this clarification, NFP entities now must consider unusual planning decisions in order to maintain ERC eligibility.

Don’t Miss Out on the Newly Supercharged Employee Retention Tax Credit
Posted by Craig Klein on Fri, Jan 22, 2021 @ 09:29 AM

The Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) was established by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, but limitations on its availability tempered interest in the relief measure. That is about to change, thanks to significant changes made on Dec. 27, 2020, by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (the Act). The ERTC is now available to employers that received loans under the Payroll Protection Program (PPP), so any employer meeting ERTC eligibility criteria can benefit. Because employers potentially benefit from the enhanced ERTC on a retroactive basis, employers should immediately begin analyses to identify and calculate the value of retroactive or prospective ERTC benefits.
