Leverage these programs to sustain and potentially grow your business
At Campolo & Associates we understand that the coronavirus pandemic has hit a little too close to home for many of the businesses and nonprofits we serve. There is a lot of misinformation going around about the recently enacted Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act).
Elements of the CARES Act that can Help your Business Recover
We do not take it lightly that you’ve trusted us with your taxes, accounting and payroll needs over the years and believe you shouldn’t have to face these uncertain times on your own. We’ve done our own research and spoke with top experts on your behalf to compile the following information about sections of the CARES Act that can help your business recover.
