Several weeks ago, Finney Law Firm (FLF) did a webinar for EmpowerU on the relief offered to small business and self-employed under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). One of the main focuses of that webinar was the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which offers forgivable loans to small businesses. Since that time, over 4.5 million companies have received PPP loans totaling over $510 Billion. And, approximately $100 Billion in funding for PPP loans remains unused.

If you are one of the small businesses or self-employed that received a PPP loan (or if you are considering applying for one), you’ve likely been wrestling with questions on how to make sure your loan is forgiven. The SBA has now provided significant additional guidance on PPP loan forgiveness, including, for example:

  • New rules on what payroll counts toward forgiveness
  • New rules on what you can spend PPP funds on other than payroll
  • New rules on when you must spend PPP funds
  • How you calculate your reduction in loan forgiveness if you decrease employees and/or compensation (including safe harbors that help preserve PPP forgiveness)

And, Congress is working to change the rules to allow more time and flexibility in spending the funds. In this webinar, FLF will outline these new rules and the potential changes, and how to maximize your PPP loan forgiveness.

Even for small businesses that received a PPP loan, that loan is likely not the only assistance needed to survive and thrive in this changing economy. One of the lessons learned over the last several weeks is that the economic impacts of the COVID 19 pandemic are likely longer lasting and more far reaching than we originally imagined. Recognizing this reality, FLF has launched a Small Business Solutions Group.

Tuesday, June 9 at 6pm, the presenters will explain the importance of how to get your PPP Loan forgiven by your financial institution and the SBA.  If you have a PPP Loan don’t miss this class.
