PPP Forgiveness Update August 2020

0

Both the SBA and the U.S. Treasury have been busy throughout the month of August.  We have seen the loan approval process close on August 8, the loan forgiveness application process open on August 10 (sort of), forgiveness rules clarification with the August 11th update of their FAQs,  and a new interim final rules published on August 24th.   The closing of the PPP loan program is probably long overdue. After several extensions of the program, it appeared that the demand for the loan funds had come to a halt and there was not much of a demand for it in…

The Paycheck Protection Program itself was not designed to last beyond 2020, so hopefully this is not a bad sign of what is ahead. Let’s take a moment to see how this latest Act impacts those who will be looking for forgiveness on their loan.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Forgiveness Part II

0

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has released the Loan Forgiveness Application, which has provided answers to many previously-vague conditions of forgiveness.  One problem is that for many, these instructions come towards the end of their eight-week loan proceeds spending and may be too late.  I saw one article state that the loan application failed to provide instructions as to how to build a time machine to go back in time to correct what might have already been done.  We may see a spike in Delorean resales! Rather than repeat what I have provided in the first article https://blog.paymaster.com/sba-paycheck-protection-program-ppp-loan-forgiveness/ , I…
