Van De Mark Agency Announces New Financial Service to Help Business Owners Claim Accurate Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC)

 Van De Mark Agency, a leading financial services advisor, is pleased to announce a new financial service designed to help business owners accurately claim the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC). This service will provide a specialized team of CPAs to maximize the ERTC claim, which will provide a much-needed influx of cash for businesses experiencing a slowdown in revenue due to inflation and a slowing business cycle.

The ERTC was introduced as part of the CARES Act in 2020 to provide relief for businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The credit is available to businesses that retained their employees during the pandemic, and it can be a valuable source of cash for businesses struggling with reduced revenue. However, many businesses have not been able to claim the full credit due to the complexity of the rules and the requirements for documentation.

Van De Mark Agency’s new service will provide a team of experienced CPAs who will help business owners accurately calculate and claim the ERTC. The service is different from others in the market, as it focuses on maximizing the claim by providing a team of CPAs who specialize in ERTC. The team will work closely with business owners to ensure that all necessary documentation is provided and that the claim is accurate.

According to Van De Mark Agency’s data, the average refund for businesses claiming the ERTC is $150,000, but depending on the number of W-2 employees, the refund can be in the millions of dollars. With the new service, business owners can expect to receive the maximum amount of cash available under the ERTC program.

“We understand that many businesses are struggling with reduced revenue due to inflation and a slowing business cycle,” said Marquis Van De Mark, CEO of Van De Mark Agency Ltd. “We want to help these businesses get the cash they need to survive and thrive. Our new service will provide a specialized team of CPAs who will help business owners accurately calculate and claim the ERTC. This will provide a much-needed influx of cash that can be used to cover operating expenses, pay employees, and invest in the business.”

Interested parties can download the ERTC Ultimate Guide from our website or contact Marquis Van De Mark, the CEO of Van De Mark Agency Ltd. on LinkedIn at Van De Mark Agency Ltd. Our team of CPAs is ready to help businesses claim the maximum amount of cash available under the ERTC program.

Afritalent Agency Presents Nollywood Blockbuster “Kanaani” in Partnership with Tola Olatunji Films

 Afritalent Agency partners with Tola Olatunji Films to present the red carpet screening of the Nollywood blockbuster “Kanaani” in Hollywood. Tola Olatunji wrote, directed, and produced “Kanaani”; which means “the promised land.” The film follows the lives of two Nigerian natives in their rural village who are in love but, due to poverty, quickly descend into the international travesty of sex and human trafficking. “Kanaani” premieres at the Fine Arts Theater in Beverly Hills, CA, on April 7, 2023, at 6:30 pm with a red carpet starting at 6:00 pm.

Sam Okhade, founder and CEO of SAG franchised Afritalent Agency (the agency), is passionate about bringing diversity to Hollywood. Mr. Okhade strives to bridge the gap between Hollywood and Nollywood. He notes, “(The agency) was founded after identifying a hole in the entertainment industry. Diversity is increasingly important in today’s ever-changing social landscape. In the past few years, we’ve seen the growth of diverse content on streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon and traditional networks like CBS, ABC, and NBC steadily mirroring our multicultural society. There is a fountain of undiscovered talent in Nollywood, and it is time Hollywood takes notice.”

Afritalent Agency proudly announces its representation, marketing, and distribution partnership with Tola Olatunji Films. This partnership exemplifies Mr. Okhade’s continued goal of bringing Nollywood to Hollywood. “Kanaani” highlights the plight of immigrants from sub-Saharan Africa facing difficult migration choices and the abuses and excesses they experience. “Kanaani” tells this story thoughtfully and thoroughly. This fast-paced, emotional film evokes a call to action against the ugly face of global sex and human trafficking.

The cast of “Kanaani” includes the highly talented Gabriel Afolayan, Ivie Olujaiye, Robb Hudspeth, Ayo Adey-Kosh, and Joseph Benjamin. Tickets for “Kanaani” are available on Eventbrite, ranging from 50 dollars for general admission to 2,000 dollars for sponsorship-level tickets. A portion of the ticket sales will help support global anti-human trafficking initiatives. The film’s writer, director, and producer, Mr. Olatunji, states, “Advocacy against human trafficking is a heart job… however, we can all support the cause in our little way. Sadly, this story is some people’s reality.”

For ticket information-

Afritalent Agency (the agency) is committed to future film & TV content development, marketing, and distribution in the Nollywood and Hollywood sphere. The Agency will also continue to develop entertainment careers, align itself with unique content creators, and discover talent globally.

NY Insurance Hub Agency Working to Educate Customers

 The NY Insurance Hub Agency, known for its strong client relationships, is working to change the perception of the insurance industry as distant and uncaring. An independently-owned and operated insurance agency located in Albany, NY, New York’s Capital Region, the agency is focusing efforts to better reflect their enhanced product offerings and vision and commitment to servicing, educating, and building relationships with clients throughout the Capital District and the state of New York.

“It is just amazing at how many prospective new clients come to us with existing car, home, and business insurance and have almost no idea what their current coverage is, what their coverages mean, and whether or not there are gaps in their protection,” said James O’Brien, principal agent for the agency.

“Throughout the years, we have noticed a hole in the property and casualty insurance business where customers are not being guided, educated or even asked the pertinent questions needed to assess their risk of loss for proper protection. We feel that people deserve more and that it’s an agency’s responsibility to provide a higher level of service, guidance, education, and relationship building than many are receiving currently. This directly relates to our slogan to ‘Expect More’ from your insurance agency.”

The agency offers full lines of personal insurance such as home, auto, renter’s, mobile home and motorcycle coverage, as well as full commercial insurance including business owner’s policy, auto, property, habitational and contractor insurance.

Above all else, the NY Insurance Hub Agency also offers extensive education to their clients on insurance options and specialties via the agency’s newly designed website and social media channels.

NY Insurance Hub is a member agency of the Satellite Agency Network (SAN) Group, the leading independent agency alliance in the Northeast. The insurance agency joined SAN Group in 2018, enabling it to offer more products from multiple top carriers and better serve the interests of its clients, while remaining a locally owned independent agency.

About NY Insurance Hub Agency

NY Insurance Hub is a provider of auto, home, business, and commercial insurance to the Capital Region and all of New York State. Committed to providing the right coverage at the right price, the agency shops dozens of insurance companies to maximize consumer benefit, not the company.
