Thinking you've missed the bus with Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC)?

Good News! You haven't.

You can still apply for ERTC for 2020 and 2021. But there are many eligibility criteria involved which are often missed by payroll service providers, raising a red flag from the IRS.

In case you've already availed PPP, filing for ERTC can become more complex. The experts at Astute have a thorough understanding of the fine details on how to apply and receive a positive response for ERTC for your business.
