BottomLine Concepts – Employee Retention Credits

claim for your business. In 2020, President Biden made changes to the CARES Act legislation to make it much easier for businesses to qualify. ERC is available to both small and mid-size businesses. Click here to schedule a free appointment to discuss ERC with a specialist.
