The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a federal payroll tax refund available to qualifying businesses under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Virtually every company in Georgia was impacted by COVID-19 and the corresponding government shutdowns.

Many qualified businesses have yet to file for the ERC refund—but there is still time.

What is the Employee Retention Credit (ERC)?

Similar to the original Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the ERC was created through the CARES Act. You can file for the Employee Retention Credit regardless of whether or not your company received PPP funds. The ERC is a wholly separate and distinct program. It is designed to reimburse the companies and organizations that kept on workers during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021. The ERC tax credit can be as much as seven times higher than the PPP funds that businesses in Georgia received. Further, unlike the PPP, there are no requirements that ERC funds have to be spent on the business. It is an unrestricted cash payment that is yours to keep. 

How to Claim the ERC in Georgia

One of the most common questions that business owners in Georgia have: How do I qualify for the ERC? To successfully claim the Employee Retention Credit in Georgia, a business or organization must satisfy federal eligibility requirements. A Georgia business can qualify for the ERC tax credit for any quarter in 2020 or 2021 if: 

  1. The company was fully or partially restricted (shut down) due to federal, state, or local government orders; or
  2. The company endured a significant revenue loss—defined as at least 20 percent in 2021 when compared to 2019. 

It is important to emphasize that a Georgia business only needs to meet one of these two eligibility criteria. Notably, the vast majority of companies in Georgia can qualify for the Employee Retention Credit on the grounds of a partial government suspension of operations. Indeed, your Georgia business or organization may be able to qualify for the ERC on the basis of: 

  • Cleaning and sanitization requirements; 
  • Social distancing rules; 
  • Capacity limitations; 
  • Work from home orders; 
  • Supply chain disruptions; or Vendor disruptions
  • Travel restrictions.

The ERC experts at ERC Guaranteed help companies in Georgia submit their ERC application 941x. We have access to the relevant federal, state, and local government orders. Qualify for the ERC in Georgia in at little as 60 seconds. 

Who Can Claim the Employee Retention Credit in Georgia?

The Employee Retention Credit is not limited to specific industries. You are not required to prove that your company meets any federal or state definition as an “essential business.” You can qualify for the ERC regardless. Indeed, the overwhelming majority of the businesses in Georgia were affected by a full or partial government shutdown and can qualify for the ERC on these grounds alone. Our ERC financial professionals work with companies from all industries. Some businesses that we frequently assist in Georgia include: 

  • Healthcare: The COVID-19 pandemic caused major disruptions in the healthcare industry. We help a wide range of healthcare providers file for the ERC in Georgia. Some of the most heavily impacted businesses were dentists, chiropractors, and therapists. Other companies in Georgia healthcare—including hospitals and home health agencies—can qualify as well. 
  • Educational Institutions: Educational institutions in Georgia can claim the ERC. Our ERC specialists frequently work with daycare facilities to help them secure their ERC benefits. Other educational institutions, including nonprofits, trade schools, and tutoring businesses, can also qualify for the ERC tax refund. 
  • Transportation Industry: The transportation industry is a key part of Georgia’s economy. Our team works with transportation businesses to help them navigate the ERC application process. Truck companies endured major disruptions due to supply chain issues and other government requirements. Other transportation companies—including moving companies and medical transportation—also frequently qualify for the ERC. 
  • All Retail Stores: Many brick-and-mortar retail stores were forced to close for part of the pandemic. Those that remained open endured supply chain disruptions, social distancing requirements, and cleaning and sanitizing rules. We help all retail businesses in Georgia claim the ERC. 
  • Restaurants: The restaurant industry was subject to many different government restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Every restaurant in Georgia that was open during 2020 and 2021 can file for the Employee Retention Credit, including fast food franchises. Sunrise Business Solutions is committed to representing businesses in the restaurant industries.  
  • Personal Care Business: We work with the full range of personal care businesses, including Spas, fitness centers,  gyms, and salons.

Georgia Businesses Can Still Claim the ERC for Both 2020 and 2021

As noted previously, the ERC is available for the final three quarters of 2020 and the first three quarters of 2021. Businesses in Georgia that have already filed their taxes for 2020 and/or 2021 can still claim the ERC for all six quarters. It is not too late to get the full ERC tax refund. Under federal law, the Employee Retention Credit has a three-year statutory lookback period. In effect, this means that all businesses have a right to submit an amended Form 941-X within three years. The Georgia ERC specialists at ERC Guaranteed can help you file for the ERC now.
