COVID-19 Update June 8, 2020

Stop filling out your PPP loan forgiveness application. Everything has changed for the PPP forgiveness with the new law, including a new application for forgiveness coming soon.

The big news from the SBA today is that the forgiveness percentage is still available if you don’t reach 60% of your PPP loan on Payroll costs. The original interpretation of the new law was that if you did not reach 60% then none of your loan was forgiven. Fortunately, this is no longer the case.

There are still lots of questions to be answered from the powers that be with no timetable. The one thing we know is that whatever you have prepared for your forgiveness application was a good test run. The real application for forgiveness is going to change from the current version.
