We Are Relentless in the Pursuit of Successful Financial Outcomes for Our Clients

Who We Are

Corporate Strategies is engaged in private lending and commercial real estate acquisition & development. We provide asset-based fundings of $2,500,000 to $15,000,000 for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) whose loan applications or renewals are rejected by conventional banks.

When the passage of the 2020 CARES Act changed all business operations, we added a new critically needed focus by facilitating millions of dollars in PPP loans for our small business, church, and school clients. From there, it became a natural progression for us to focus on the added value of the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) payroll tax refund program.

This once-in-a-lifetime funding opportunity that is available to our clients is fraught with IRS audit risk and demands careful attention to detail and IRS guidance.

We provide that. We have engaged a deeply experienced tax auditor to lead our team of tax attorneys, CPA’s and former IRS agents. Corporate Strategies’ clients can depend on meticulous, well-documented ERC substantiation records that will withstand the scrutiny of any future IRS audit.

The program deadline begins April 15, 2015 for 2020 claims, and 2021 claims end April 15, 2025. We will assist small businesses, churches and schools with their ERC funding eligibility on a contingency basis without charge.

What We Do

We are focused on Private Lending to SMBs and Investing in Commercial Real Estate. We provide nonbank funding sources for small to medium size businesses whose loan applications or renewals are rejected by conventional banks. Corporate Strategies team is comprised of experienced private banking professionals, former tax auditors, practicing tax lawyers/CPAs/ex IRS agents and dedicated staff.

Since 2020, our team members have become known as trusted experts in CARES Act funding requirements and IRS and Treasury requirements for ERC payroll tax refund qualification. We have chosen to focus our meticulous compliance efforts regarding the ERC payroll tax refund program to churches, schools, small businesses and recovery startup businesses. We believe our strict compliance with IRS and Treasury guidelines has led to the most positive outcome possible — not a single one of our clients has had their ERC payroll tax refund denied nor had an audit that resulted in any assessment of penalties or interest.

Employee Retention Credit Payroll Tax Refund Program

Our experienced tax accountants and attorneys provide ERC qualification services to assure you the maximum legal tax refund. If you do not qualify for an ERC payroll tax refund, you pay us nothing.
