ALERT: New PPP Guidance Issued
ALERT: New PPP Guidance Issued
On May 13, 2020, the SBA extended the repayment date to May 18, 2020. On May 5, 2020, SBA announced an extension of one week, to May 14, 2020, if an applicant wants to repay a PPP loan. Per FAQ #43, borrowers do not need to apply for the extension and additional guidance will be provided by SBA on how it will review the certification prior to May 14, 2020.
The Small Business Administration on April 26 updated its FAQs to provide some clarity about program specifications. Click here and scroll to question 31 for full details.
Any business that received a PPP loan before the SBA issued its new guidance — and that believes they DO NOT demonstrate necessity for the loan — can repay the full loan by May 7, 2020. The SBA will deem any business that repays the loan by that date to have made the required good faith certification on their PPP application.
If you decide that the loans were necessary to keep your businesses viable during this economic downturn, it’s crucial that you maintain accurate, detailed records to support your decision. If your business is audited, having these records can help minimize any punitive damage or negative allegations related to your receipt of funding.
