Employee Retention Credit Services for Small Business

Padgett calculates your Employee Retention Credit

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a fully refundable tax credit that could provide significant financial relief for your business—up to $26,000 per eligible employee. However, it can be tricky to understand the credit and calculate your eligibility on your own. Here’s how Padgett can help your business take advantage of the ERC:

Determine if you qualify for the credit

Accurately calculate your tax credit amount

Amend prior 941 forms that qualify for the Employee Retention Credit

Why Padgett?

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Padgett has been on the front lines, helping hundreds of business owners across the country. Collectively, our clients have received millions of dollars in tax credits. Let us put our experience to work for you! Contact us today to learn more about your ERC eligibility.


No! It’s not too late to get money for your small business using the Employee Retention Credit. You can file amended payroll tax returns for 2020 through September 30, 2021 to claim the credit. There is a 3-year statute of limitations on the “Qualifying Wages” for the ERC, which means wages paid in the first quarter of 2020 will no longer be available for the credit after the first quarter of 2023!

To be eligible for the Employee Retention Credit, your business must either have operations that were fully or partially suspended during any calendar quarter in 2020 or any of the first three quarters in 2021 due to COVID-19 orders from an appropriate governmental authority OR have experienced a significant decline in gross receipts during the calendar quarter.

At a high level, the ERC is reported on your business’s Form 941. For a more detailed explanation of how the credit works and to find out how much money you can get for your business, schedule your free online consultation with your local Padgett office today!
