CARES Act Consulting

Navigate the intricacies and impacts of CARES Act funding with advisors focused on the future of your business.

Go From Surviving to Thriving

From navigating a PPP audit to understanding CARES Act funding impacts on a merger or acquisition, we can help you succeed on the other side of the pandemic.

PPP, EIDL and ERTC Advisory and Audit Support

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) and the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC or ERC) provided much-needed relief to businesses throughout the pandemic. While we’re on the other side of obtaining funding and PPP loan forgiveness, the SBA and IRS have begun auditing recipients to ensure the funds were used correctly and identify instances of fraud.

We work with clients who have received PPP, EIDL and ERTC funding on:

  • Audit defense for SBA and IRS audits
  • Understanding what you can and can’t do if you received EIDL funding
  • Tax strategies and advisory

Keep an eye on our CARES Act Relief Radar for the latest clarifications around relief programs.

We take a personalized approach to provide the best service possible. Fees are calculated on an hourly basis, dependent on the complexity of your specific situation. Contact Anders to learn more. Due to the recent IRS moratorium for processing ERTC claims, Anders will no longer be accepting new ERTC clients until the IRS issues additional guidance and options available to affected businesses.
