• Understand Employee Retention Credit under the CARES Act


The Employee Retention Credit is a great way to bring revenues to your firm while helping your struggling clients with their cash flow. As part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), some employers (including community banks) may be eligible for a refundable payroll tax credit, if certain criteria are met.
