Amidst the upheaval brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, United Noodles, the largest Asian grocery store in Minnesota and its neighboring states, found itself grappling with challenges. The store, heavily reliant on products supplied outside of the US, was hit hard by pandemic-related restrictions, shutdowns, and supply chain disruptions, resulting in significant revenue losses. These unprecedented circumstances exacerbated the strain on their financial operations
With simple automations and an organized method,we set out with ha goal of reducing the workload for this weekly project by more than 70%.
Talking to our client with the goal of understanding all the challenges they faced during the pandemic, we realized that they had huge issues with the supply chain that made the client unable to supply their store with goods.
Once we established their eligibility for the ERC, we gathered all the documents they had to provide us to do the necessary calculations.
We next did the calculations, and wrote a 400 page legal document with all the proof that they actually did face challenges during COVID-19.
Finally, we filed the application and had to wait for 2 months to receive a positive answer from the IRS!
As a result of our work and calculations, the client was eligible to receive a seven figure number considering they had a lot of employees.
