Established by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed into law on March 27, 2020, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) offers low-interest loans to help keep small businesses afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic. Administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA), PPP loans are potentially forgivable if businesses use the money for approved purposes. 

The SBA initially required borrowers to use at least 75% of the loan to cover payroll to qualify for forgivenessMany small businesses advocated for a change to this requirementwhich prevented them from using the bulk of the funds to cover expenses such as rent, utilities and vendor paymentsOn June 3, President Trump signed a Senate-approved bill into law that made changes to program, which included reducing that requirement, among other updates.  
Herbein is pleased to offer this webinar designed to clarify the large volume of PPP information and how to maximize loan forgiveness, including the role of expense tracking and documentation requirements. Herbein will provide an up-to-the-minute overview that will help attendees sort through the details of the PPP’s loan forgiveness requirements.
