The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan program, passed under the CARES legislation, provided the ability of loan forgiveness if certain criteria were met. In mid-May, the SBA provided guidance on loan forgiveness to assist borrowers. However, the delay in issuing this guidance and a slowdown in operations concerned borrowers, as they feared they might be unable to maximize their PPP loan forgiveness.

On June 5, 2020, the President signed the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 into law and now that it has been enacted, there are several key features to pay attention to. These changes should be welcome news to most borrowers who applied for a PPP loan.

Please join Ray Lampner and Dan Leffler of Sikich LLP as they breakdown the changes you need to know about. Some key highlights to be covered include:

  • How long the PPPFA extends the forgiveness "covered period" and why that matters
  • Changes in loan term limits and loan dates
  • Changes in FTE requirements and calculations
  • Changes to the "75/25 Rule"
