PPP Forgiveness Information and Resources

Updated January 21, 2021: The government has passed a new stimulus bill that authorizes additional funding and streamlined forgiveness for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). On December 27, 2020, the Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act (Economic Aid Act) was enacted, which reauthorizes lending under the PPP through March 31, 2021.

These SBA forgivable loan programs were created to assist small businesses in meeting payroll and other critical expense needs. These loans require a certification that current economic uncertainty makes this loan request necessary to support the ongoing operations of the Applicant.

How to Calculate Loan Amounts (Detailed SBA Guidance)

PPP Forgiveness Information and Resources

We are awaiting revised guidance and loan forgiveness applications from SBA.

Since the new legislation also contains changes to the forgiveness process. Compeer Financial recommends clients pause on submitting PPP forgiveness applications at this point. We will not be submitting any additional PPP forgiveness applications to SBA until we receive guidance from SBA on the changes to the forgiveness process.

Loan forgiveness will be dependent on the client expending the funds on documented payroll costs, covered mortgage interest payments, covered rent payments, covered utilities, covered operations expenditures, covered property damage costs, covered supplier costs, and covered worker protection expenditures, and not more than 40% of the forgiven amount may be for non-payroll costs.
