Understanding the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (H.R. 748) (CARES Act) was signed by the President on March 27, 2020, and is now law. The Small Business Administration (SBA) has begun to implement their portion of the provisions of the CARES Act. In this webinar hosted on March 31, 2020, Matt Austin, Managing Director-Keiter Advisors and Scott Zickefoose, Tax Senior Manager, Keiter, share their insights on one of these provisions, the Paycheck Protection Program.

This webinar discusses the following aspects of the program:

  • Who is eligible?
  • Loan amount
  • What are “payroll costs”?
  • Permitted uses of proceeds
  • Loan forgiveness provisions
  • Potential reduction in forgiveness benefits
  • Rehire exemptions
  • Documentation required, and more
