05/20/20 Covid-19 Coronavirus Update PPP (Payroll Protection Program) Update:

As many of you know, the (Payroll Protection Program) PPP passed in Congress, the Senate, and got signed by President Trump some weeks ago. There has been plenty of accurate and inaccurate information about the program. The primary purpose of the plan was to supply funds to small businesses so they could keep their employees paid during the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic. 

If you qualified and took the money, it started as a loan to the company. If you use the money for employees, rent, or mortgages, the loan can turn into a forgivable grant that you will not repay. One issue employers are struggling with is the forgiveness of the loan. The rules have been vague at best. There is a new document release from the Small Business Administration (SBA) to help clear this up and make it easier to comply with the requirements. 

One of the requirements is to use all of the money within eight weeks of receiving your funds. Note: There is a bill being proposed today in the Senate to extend this time frame from eight weeks to either twelve or sixteen weeks. Call your Senators and let them know this is a great idea.  

To help with forgiveness, you may find the following links helpful.

The first link is to the newly release updated documents from the SBA.

The second link comes from a CPA firm trying to help their clients.

Hopefully, this helps with trying to comply with the forgiveness of these loans. Go out, and make a great day.
