What is the PPP Loan?

The PPP loan is a loan that is given to small businesses in order to help them with the expenses associated with the coronavirus pandemic. The loan can be used for things such as payroll, rent, and utilities. The loan is 100% forgivable if the business spends the money on these things and does not lay off any employees.

What is the PPP Loan Forgiveness Program?

The PPP loan forgiveness program is a government initiative that allows small businesses to apply for forgivable loans in order to keep their businesses afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the SBA, in order for a PPP loan to be forgiven, borrowers must use the loan proceeds for eligible expenses, which include payroll costs, mortgage interest, rent and utility payments. At least 60% of the loan must be used for payroll costs.

The maximum amount that can be forgiven is the lesser of two options: either the total amount spent on eligible expenses within the 24-week period following the disbursement of the loan, or 2.5 times your average monthly payroll costs during that same period.

Borrowers who have already received a PPP loan may apply for forgiveness starting eight weeks after their loan was dispersed. The deadline to apply for forgiveness is December 31, 2020.

How Much of the PPP Loan Is Forgivable?

The PPP loan is a government-backed loan that is meant to help small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The loan is 100% forgivable if used for certain expenses, such as payroll, rent, and utilities.

What Are the Eligibility Requirements for Loan Forgiveness?

To be eligible for loan forgiveness, you must use at least 60% of your loan for payroll expenses. You can use the remaining 40% of your loan for eligible non-payroll expenses, including rent, utilities, mortgage interest, and health care benefits.

You must also maintain your employee headcount and salary levels. Forgiveness will be based on a reduction in the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) employees or a reduction in salaries of more than 25%.

Loan forgiveness is not automatic. You must apply for it using this form from the Small Business Administration (SBA).

How Do I Apply for Loan Forgiveness?

It’s not too late to apply for a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan. The Small Business Administration (SBA) is still accepting applications for first-time borrowers and for Second Draw PPP loans.

Not sure how much of your PPP loan will be forgiven? The answer depends on how you use the loan proceeds. At least 60% of the loan must be used for payroll costs, and at least 40% of the loan must be used for eligible non-payroll costs.

You can use the PPPForgiveness Calculator to estimate your loan forgiveness amount. Keep in mind that the forgiveness amount is an estimate, and the actual amount may be different.

To apply for loan forgiveness, you must submit a Loan Forgiveness Application to your lender. You can find more information about how to apply for forgiveness in the SBA’s Forgiveness Timelines & Requirements document.

What Happens if I Don’t Repay the Loan?

What Are the Penalties for Not Repaying the Loan?

If you received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, you may be wondering what will happen if you can’t repay it.

The PPP loan is a forgivable loan, meaning that if you use the loan for its intended purpose (usually payroll and other qualifying expenses), you will not have to repay the loan. However, if you do not use the loan for its intended purpose or if you do not meet the other requirements for forgiveness, you will be required to repay the loan with interest.

If you cannot repay the loan, the Small Business Administration (SBA) will work with you to try to arrange a repayment plan. If you still cannot repay the loan after working with the SBA, the debt will be turned over to a collections agency. The agency may then take action to collect on the debt, including garnishing your wages or seizing your assets.

What Are the Consequences of Defaulting on the Loan?

There can be serious consequences if you default on your PPP loan. The loan will become immediately due and payable, and you could be subject to:

· Interest and late fees

· Collection activities by the lender, including wage garnishment, asset seizure, and litigation

· Ineligibility for any additional SBA-backed loans
