1.0.1 Released 01/12/21

Submissions Impacted: 0

This update did not impact eligibility for any submissions to-date, only narrative aspects of the email.

Changes

  • Added two more business start dates options to the form:
    • Between 1/1/20 and 2/14/20
    • After 2/14/20
  • The form now asks for the name and email of the person completing the form. This may be useful in scenarios where the form is being used as a lead magnet, and you may not know the person yet.
  • Before:

    Now:

  • ERC shutdown eligibility is allowed for all periods regardless of business start date. Technically it was doing this before, but since there wasn't a start date option in 2020, ineligibility was implied.
  • ERC 2021 Q1 & Q2 receipt test eligibility for businesses started in 2020 now supported. Technically this was also supported before, but since there wasn't a start date option in 2020, ineligibility was implied.

Improvements

  • Now indicates you may be eligible for PPP1 if it hasn't been taken yet.
  • Added to ERC eligibility overview in the email that payments may not be a severance payment, and not be to a related party.

Bug Fixes

  • Q1 2021 can now be eligible if Q4 2020 ineligible, but still a 20% drop. Tool was previously only treating Q1 2021 as eligible if Q4 2020 was both a 20% drop and eligible under 2020 ERC rules.
  • If no PPP1 taken, the "PPP2" label below it wasn't being displayed.
