"I can't even begin to express how thrilled we are that we decided to work with Andy to help us navigate the ERC program. After being told by not one, but two advisors that we've known for 18 years that we wouldn't qualify because we were the definition of "Essential" and had record-breaking revenue years in 2020/2021, we were feeling pretty hopeless. Andy had reached out to say that he could help us, even when I told him we don't qualify. He laughed and said 'Just watch what we can do!'
Their team was incredibly knowledgeable and professional, and they were able to quickly identify that we did in fact qualify for ERC. We were blown away when we learned that we were eligible for $2,850,000 in ERC - an amount that we never could have imagined.
If you're a business owner considering the ERC program, you need to give Andy a chance. There is a lot of bad information out there that is simply not true. Andy is an expert for ERC. His team is the real deal - experts in their field who truly care about their clients' success. We're so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them, and we know that we'll continue to rely on them for years to come."

"I want to take a moment to share my ERC experience with Andy and his incredible team behind our ERC journey. Our story began as a cold lead, as Andy reached out about his services in helping me with ERC through email. I was getting bombarded by aggressive marketing campaigns from various ERC vendors, all of whom told me I didn't qualify after talking to them. Even my own CPA told me that I didn't qualify.
What set Andy apart from the rest was his persistence and unwavering belief in our eligibility. He told me something that truly resonated: "80%+ of the businesses we qualify today for ERC had all been told that they did not qualify."
I learned so much from that 15 minute call with Andy. He was explaining to me that 99% of CPAs, Accountants, CFOs and other ERC Vendors only focus on the Significant Decline in Revenue qualification. This was why I was being told that I did not qualify because I was Essential, had my best years in revenue during the pandemic and kept my employees.
He told me about Category #3 - "Business Disruption as a Result of COVID." This would include supply chain issues, vendor delays, capacity restrictions, etc. I had all of those characteristics. That simple statement gave me hope and decided to give Andy a chance. I thought, "Sure, what's the worst thing that could happen? I would be in the same spot as I was prior to meeting you."
But little did I know that Andy and his team don't work in worst-case scenarios; they work in best-case scenarios. The results were beyond anything I could have imagined. They secured me $1,730,000 in ERC for my 77-employee construction company!!!
They restored my faith in finding genuine partners who go above and beyond to make a difference.
If you're facing uncertainty with ERC or have been told you don't qualify, don't give up hope. Take that 15 minute call Andy wants you to take with him. If I did not take that call with Andy, I would have missed out on $1,730,000 because my traditional CPA and other ERC vendors told me that I do not qualify."
125 employees - $1,450,000
"I am happy to share my testimonial for your exceptional team who helped my business obtain $1,450,000 in Employee Retention Credit (ERC), even after being told by my CPA, CFO and other ERC vendors that we did not qualify.
As a business owner with 125 employees in the Government Contracting space, our team has worked tirelessly to retain our staff and continue to grow our business during the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, despite our best efforts, we were repeatedly told by our CFO, CPA, and another ERC firm that we did not meet the qualifications for ERC.
That's when we turned to your amazing team for assistance. I appreciate your persistence in telling me that my company would qualify even after being told I couldn't. Andy educated me on Category #3 - "Business Disruption as a Result of COVID." We were not able to attend Networking Events, Conferences, we went virtual, had contracts delayed, etc.
Andy said those are the very items that could qualify my business for ERC. I'm glad to have taken a leap of faith with you. It was life-changing. Your team quickly got to work on exploring every option available to us. They conducted a thorough review of our financial records and operations, and were able to identify several areas where we were indeed eligible for ERC.
Their expertise and dedication were truly unparalleled, and we could not have navigated this complex process without them. They kept us informed every step of the way and were always available to answer any questions or concerns we had.
We are so grateful for your hard work and dedication, and would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to navigate the challenging world of ERC."
Landscaping & Design Company
107 employees - $1,268,000
"I am a proud owner of an 107-employee landscaping company that was considered Essential during the pandemic. You truly have been a life-saver for my business, qualifying me for an astounding $1,268,000 in ERC!
One of the most remarkable aspects of my journey with your company was your ability to overcome the misconception that I wouldn't qualify for ERC due to increased revenue during 2020/2021. I was constantly being told this by my CPA, other advisors and even other ERC Firms that I wouldn't qualify. I'm so glad I gave you a chance and didn't let those people stop me from getting ERC. During our first call, you were extremely confident that I was going to get ERC because of the 150 + Landscaping companies you have helped prior. Well, add me to that list of successful landscaping companies!
I remember being in complete awe when I received the email of my ERC qualifications. I couldn't believe how much money I would be able to reinvest in my business, donate to my favorite local non-profit, provide better benefits for my employees and offer more services to my clients. These were all once on my "Wish List" and now it's coming true!
Not only did you and your team deliver exceptional results, but your dedication to customer satisfaction and personalized attention truly stood out. You were always available to answer my questions, provide guidance, and allowed me to sleep at night knowing I was being taken care of.
I highly highly highly recommend Andy and his team to do your ERC. As a business owner of 30 + years, they are the best in what they do. If you're being told that you don't qualify for ERC or if you're considering other firms, trust me, you want Andy and his team in your corner. They will not only maximize your ERC benefits but also provide you with incredible support and peace of mind."
Industrial Propane Company
30 employees - $706,000
“It was great working with CLRA Group…a very easy process!
I wasn’t sure if we could qualify at first. We knew we had one quarter we could qualify for, but turns out we qualified for them all! The consultant at Hundredfold walked us through everything we went through during that time.
Qualifying for ERC is a huge benefit to us.
We are a small company and cash flow is always a challenge. It will help us pay for some inventory we had to stock up on due to product shortages.
It’s worth the call to find out if you qualify!“
28 employees - $512,000
"I got your contact information from a friend of mine who is using your services to get ERC. I have to admit, I wasn't initially excited to have a call with you because I had been told by several of my own advisors that I wouldn't qualify. However, my friend assured me that you had spoken to his CPA, who was impressed with the work you do to help businesses like ours. The CPA acknowledged that they couldn't dedicate the same amount of time, energy, and resources to getting ERC as you and your team do. The CPA told him to absolutely use our service because we can do a better job than him.
Reluctantly, I decided to give you 15 minutes of my time, and I'm so glad I did. During our call, you explained the process and instilled confidence in me. Despite my skepticism, I trusted your expertise and decided to sign up. Little did I know that this would be a life-changing decision for my business.
To my surprise, we not only qualified for ERC but received a staggering $512,000! I can't express enough how grateful I am. This unexpected boost is going to make a significant impact on our operations and future growth. Your unwavering confidence in your ability to help me, even when I wasn't initially interested, has proven to be the best decision I could have made.
I am beyond impressed with your professionalism, knowledge, and dedication. I wholeheartedly recommend you to other business owners out there who have been told they wouldn't qualify for ERC by their Accountants, CPAs, or other ERC firms. Trust me, you have to give Andy and his team just 10 minutes of your time. They are the real deal and have the expertise to help you navigate the ERC process successfully.
Thank you once again for your outstanding support. I'm excited to introduce you to all of my friends and help them benefit from your exceptional services."
Home Technology Installation Company
30 employees - $550,000
"I am writing this testimonial with immense joy and gratitude to express my sincere appreciation for the exceptional services provided by you and your organization. I'm the owner of a home technology installation business with 30 dedicated employees. I had been disheartened when I was informed that our company did not qualify for ERC based on what my CPA and CFO told me due to an increase in revenue during COVID. Little did I know that our fortunes were about to take a remarkable turn when we crossed paths with Andy and his team.
Andy enlightened us about the significance of qualifying under Category #3, 'Business Disruption as a Result of COVID.' Unlike other CPAs, Accountants, and ERC firms who focus primarily on the decline in revenue, Andy took the time to educate us on various qualification factors within Category #3, such as supply chain issues, vendor delays, changes in business operations and dozens more. Despite our increased revenues, Andy believed there was still an opportunity for us to qualify for ERC. His transparency throughout the process, from the Engagement Letter and the fully refundable deposit to the transparency of the software they use to calculate our ERC, was remarkable. We took a leap of faith and it paid off—we qualified for an incredible $550,000!
I recommend any business owner looking at ERC to use Andy and his team's services. Their expertise, dedication, and determination to deliver exceptional results have been instrumental in turning our business around. I am forever grateful for the positive impact they have made on our lives."
17 employees - $373,000
"I cannot express how grateful I am for your assistance we received from your team in getting us qualified for $373,000 in ERC for our Chiropractic business in Texas. As a business owner with 17 employees, I was initially skeptical about whether we would qualify for this program, as we believed we didn't experience a significant decline in revenue due to the nature of our industry. I was told by multiple advisors of mine that I would not qualify for ERC.
However, your company came to our rescue. Your team of experts analyzed our disrupted business operations during the pandemic and guided us through the ERC application process. To our amazement, your team was able to uncover eligible opportunities that we weren't aware of, resulting in a substantial ERC benefit of $373,000.
I highly recommend you having a conversation with Andy. It was only 15-20 minutes where he answered all of my questions and outlined the process which went exactly as he shared. Andy and his team turned our skepticism into success, and for that, we are immensely grateful."
Residential & Commercial Painting Company
24 employees - $296,000
"I initially had doubts about qualifying for the ERC Program. Despite successfully navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping all my employees onboard, and being an Essential business, my CPA informed me that we wouldn't be eligible because our revenue increased during 2020/2021.
However, Andy was incredibly persistent in educating me about how he helps businesses like mine qualify for the ERC every day, even when CPAs and accountants might advise otherwise.
From the moment I connected with Andy, his expertise and knowledge about the ERC were evident. I decided to give him and his team a chance, knowing that the worst-case scenario would leave me in the same situation I was in before. However, the best-case scenario became a reality, just as Andy had suggested from the beginning.
They efficiently handled the entire process, taking care of the necessary documentation and submitting the claim on my behalf. Within a short period, I received the incredible news that we were approved for an ERC of $296,000. I was utterly shocked and grateful for their expertise and determination in securing such a substantial amount for my business.
I learned a valuable lesson: it's important to not always rely solely on your CPA or accountant's advice when it comes to the ERC. They might not have a complete understanding of the program. If I had listened to my CPA, I would have missed out on $296,000. I strongly encourage everyone to give Andy and his team a chance to calculate their ERC. You'll likely experience the same happiness and satisfaction I felt when they showed me the incredible results after being told I wouldn't qualify."
I could not be happier with the work your team did on preparing and filing ERC for my company.
Before we got to work with you, I had been bombarded with phone calls/texts/emails from many companies soliciting us for this work. I do not work with this kind of companies.
After a while I decided to send one of these emails to my CPA and asked him if he knew anything about ERC and if this was legit. He told me that yes this is legit, and he will look at it and see if we could qualify based on guidelines. After initial review, he told me that he did not think we could qualify because we did not have the Significant Decline in Revenue and we were considered Essential.
Few weeks later I contacted him, and he told me that he does not have enough knowledge and/or experience in this filed and he met someone (you) who he would trust introducing to me to do this work. Because it came from him, I agreed.
Well, you and I met, and the rest is history. Your team did a marvelous job. I could not be happier. Thank you very much.
Paint and Wallpaper Company
10 employees – $147,000
This is a follow up to my experience with CLRA Group in our learning about and applying for the ERC credit.
Since our initial phone conversation with Andy Koepke we immediately began gathering the necessary documentation, which included 2020 and 2021 quarterly payroll reports and quarterly profit and loss statements. We were instructed to submit them to Andrew King at Hundredfold Consulting for his review and consultation.
The process was seamless. Those two gentlemen were so easy to work with, they explained in detail how the process works, and we had actual LIVE scheduled telephone conversations instead of waiting for email responses that often never happen in today's business world. Andrew`s investigation into raw material shortages, shipping delays, manufacturing shutdowns, and government rules aided in our qualifying for a refund.
I received a call Friday morning from Andrew King with the results of his thorough investigation, and was pleasantly shocked with the total refund to expect. He forwarded the documents for me to sign yesterday, and I am now waiting for the checks to arrive in the next 3 to 6 months. We pay nothing for their service until we are paid.
In my 58 year career, this professional group ranks among the best I have dealt with, and I want to thank everyone at SBAM who vetted this organization for their members.
HVAC / Plumbing Contractor
15 employees - $128,000
"I was feeling pretty discouraged after my own CPA told me I wouldn't qualify for ERC. I even reached out to other Accountants and ERC Firms that told me the same thing. Luckily, Andy reached out to me about ERC. He said that there would be a great chance to get me qualified because they have helped 150 + HVAC companies get ERC.
His team was incredibly knowledgeable and professional, and they had a deep understanding of the ERC program. They carefully reviewed my business's financials and found that we did in fact qualify for the credit.
Thanks to their expertise and hard work, I was able to secure $128,500 in ERC - an amount that has truly been a game-changer for my business. I can't thank them enough for all of their help and support throughout the process.
If you're a business owner looking to take advantage of the ERC program, I can't stress enough how important it is to work with a specialized firm that knows what they're doing. Reach out to Andy today because they are the best in ERC. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation."
Electrical and Mechanical Company
1 employee – $26,000
“I contacted CLRA Group and they explained to me the rules to qualifying for the ERC. They then emailed me a list of all the information I would need to see if we qualified for the ERC.
The information required was easy to put together in just one day. The group reviewed the information and then got back to me with a few questions to finalize the determination of whether or not we qualified.
The entire inquiry took less than a week to complete and it was determined that we did qualify. I was told by my accountant that we did not qualify for the ERC. Even if you were told you wouldn’t qualify you should definitely contact CLRA Group to make sure you don’t miss out on anything you may qualify for.”
