Paycheck Protection Program
The Loan Forgiveness Process
The Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (PPPFA) was signed into law on June 5th and made changes to the Paycheck Protection Program.
Overview of Key Changes
Effective with the PPPFA
Flexible Loan Forgiveness Periods
Extends the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness period to include costs incurred over 24 weeks after a loan is issued or through Dec. 31, 2020, whichever comes first. Businesses that received a loan before the changes were passed may elect to apply the original eight-week covered period.
Extended Employee Rehire
The period in which loans can be forgiven if businesses restore staffing or salary levels is extended from June 30 to December 31, 2020. This provision applies to worker and wage reductions made from February 15th through April 26th. The PPPFA also created certain exemptions to loan forgiveness amount reductions, which are detailed in the loan forgiveness application.
Relaxed PPP Loan Use Restrictions
Require at least 60% of forgiven loan amounts to come from payroll expenses instead of the original 75%.
The SBA has been issuing new guidance and clarifications to financial institutions on a frequent basis, so this information is subject to change. For more information concerning the Paycheck Protection Program and loan forgiveness, please refer to the
