With their updated service, the consultancy seeks to remind hospitality business owners to check their eligibility for the ERTC program following recent changes to the qualification criteria.

During the pandemic, restaurants and bars were among the hardest hit by forced closures and social distancing restrictions. Furthermore, while financial relief mechanisms such as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) were made available, many of these businesses are still struggling to get back to pre-pandemic revenue levels. As such, the team at ERTC Express wants to help those businesses make sure they take advantage of all the government programs they qualify for, including the ERTC, to back their operations.

Under the initial ERTC eligibility criteria, businesses that had received a PPP loan could not make an ERTC claim. However, changes made with the signing of ‘The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021’ opened up the program for more businesses, regardless of the government funding they have already obtained.

ERTC Express highlights that many business owners and their accounts teams are still unaware of the amendments, or that businesses can retroactively claim funds as far back as 2020.

Hospitality business owners can check their ERTC eligibility using the online tool available on ERTC Express’ website. The service requires no fees or commitments and allows businesses to estimate the amount of ERTC rebates they could be owed.

Should a business be eligible, the consultancy will also assist them with their application, preparing paperwork for submission and providing audit-proof documentation for any future IRS checks.

A spokesperson for ERTC Express said, “The ERTC tax incentive is heavily underutilized due to misconceptions about eligibility. Don’t miss out! You may be eligible to receive thousands, if not millions, in funding for your business. We’re the experts in that, so let us help you get there.”
