Plan Startup Credit

"An employer became an adopting / participating employer in a PEP effective 1/1/2022. They have 10 eligible NHCE's. In 2023 they established a new single employer 401(k) plan and did a spinoff from the PEP. For purposes of the plan startup credits, would they qualify under the Secure 2.0 provisions for administrative expenses under both plans (PEP and single employer 401(k) plan) or are they limited in some way in the 401(k) plan?"
