Webinar Recording PPP and ERC


The Economic Aid Act, included in the 2021 Consolidated Appropriations bill, changed the rules for the Employee Retention Credit. The previous limitation disallowing PPP loan recipients from claiming the Employee Retention Credit has been removed. This credit has the potential to return significant amounts to businesses impacted by COVID-19.
