Small Businesses Granted Priority for Remaining PPP2 Funds
Posted by Jenna Peabody on Wed, Feb 24, 2021 @ 05:14 PM

On February 22, the White House announced changes to the Paycheck Protection Program that give exclusive access to certain small businesses.

Year-end legislation provided additional funding and an extension of the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) for the first quarter of 2021. Effective February 24, the Biden-Harris administration is instituting a 14-day holding period on new PPP applications (sometimes referred to as PPP2 loans) for businesses with 20 or more employees. The goal of the hold is to lessen the PPP competition for small businesses and sole proprietorships that may have had difficulty accessing the federal funds previously.

Tax & PPP Loan Provisions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act
Posted by Jenna Peabody on Tue, Dec 29, 2020 @ 04:32 PM

On Dec. 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act (the Act) that had been passed with overwhelming majorities in both Houses of Congress on December 21. Trump delayed the signing as he pursued, with the approval of Democratic members of Congress, an increase in the amount of Recovery Rebate checks from $600 to $2,000. Without explanation or fanfare, the President signed the bill to the surprise of members of both parties. On Dec. 28, the House passed a stand-alone bill to increase the stimulus payments to $2,000, but with voting along party lines it is expected to die in the Senate.

CARES Act Part Deux: New Funding and Additional Guidance
Posted by Chrissy Hammond on Tue, Apr 21, 2020 @ 05:07 PM

The CARES Act allocated $349 billion in funding for small business loans under the Small Business Administration’s 7(a) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). As of Thursday April 16, this funding ran dry. It took less than two weeks from the April 3 rollout of the SBA loan program for this to occur, with total loans averaging $29 billion per day. Critical guidance that clarified the manner in which self-employed individuals request PPP loans emerged only three days prior to the funding depletion. Fortunately, Congress appears to be on the verge of replenishing funds available for PPP loans, so eligible business concerns should continue preparations to take advantage of this loan program.
