Erc Credit (4)


The Partners of ERCO are business owners and entrepreneurs with many years of experience. Across the last several decades we’ve created some incredible relationships with many people, of like mind. Like our large network of friends, we value innovation, hard work, integrity, serving our community, and taking care of our employees.

COVID-19’s impact along with government shutdowns dramatically affected life as we knew it. We felt this pain directly through our businesses and our employees. We also watched our friends’ businesses quickly come to a standstill and struggle as they attempted to adjust to the new normal.

When we learned about the Employee Retention Credit (ERC), we believed these would be a crucial tool to support our friends’ businesses and their employees’ livelihoods. As such, it became our mission to educate and to assist anyone impacted.


Employee retention program tax credits (ERTC) are an incredibly valuable benefit for employers. By taking advantage of this program, businesses can receive a tax credit in recognition of the time and effort they’ve devoted to developing their employees and providing them with resources to help them succeed. This employee tax retention credit program provides incentives to employers who have taken steps to invest in their workforce, helping them to retain long-term, committed employees who will be more productive and successful in their roles.
