Signed into law on December 27th, the Consolidated Appropriations Act (the Act) extends and expands the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) that was enacted under the CARES Act to provide economic relief for businesses hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic 

Below is a summary of a few of the favorable retroactive changes to 2020:

The expanded and enrichened ERC is going to prove an extremely valuable credit for many businesses, especially so in 2021—particularly businesses that received PPP loans will be surprised that not only can they now participate, but they can even do so retroactively for 2020.

Please note that this information is current as of the date of publication. We will continue to provide additional in-depth updates around this matter.

If you have questions about any of the changes discussed above or need assistance please contact a R+R tax advisor.
