The last government-ordered lockdown in the United States ended in 2021, but the effects of the pandemic can still be seen in many struggling small and medium-sized businesses. These businesses can still apply for pandemic relief funds through the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) program, using this updated fast rebate service from LP Consulting.

Though the ERC program provides tax credits that are not a loan, never require repayment, and have no restrictions on how they can be spent, the program has largely been forgotten by business owners in favor of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Using the updated application from LP Consulting, employers can claim ERC rebates even if they have already received funds through the PPP.
While businesses could originally only claim relief through either the ERC or the PPP, but not both, recent amendments have expanded the program. Now, almost any employer with between 5 and 500 W-2 employees is eligible, regardless of PPP loans.
Rebates are available for any small or medium-sized business affected by the pandemic, including startups, non-profit organizations, and new businesses founded during the pandemic. Employers can claim up to $26,000 per employee, with no upper limit on funding.
The updated fast rebate service includes a no-cost, no-obligation eligibility checking tool, that takes about one minute to complete. Without requiring any proprietary business information, the eligibility assessment can determine if a business qualifies for rebates, and approximately how much they may be eligible for.
Employers can use the fast rebate service, known as the 15 Minute Refund program, to have their applications completed by a team of ERC specialist CPAs. The program is only available from a single CPA firm, which is focused only on completing ERC applications and maximizing rebates for small businesses.
The 15 Minute Refund program guarantees every client the maximum allowable rebate for their business, with no risk or up-front fees. No business will be charged until after they have received their rebate from the IRS, and any business that does not receive a rebate will not be charged at all.
