A provision of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Paycheck Protection Program, PPP, has been a difference-maker for many U.S. companies. As of June 30, 2020, nearly 5 million small and medium-sized businesses received a much-needed cash infusion to help them make payroll during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. But where there is loan money available on payback forgiveness terms, there will inevitably be fraudsters attempting to game the system.
If your business obtained a PPP loan, whether you plan to repay the loan or to seek PPP loan forgiveness, you need to be fully aware of the revised terms and conditions established under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Flexibility Act of 2020 (PPPFA). The PPP Flexibility Act (HR 7010) was signed into effect by President Donald Trump on June 5, 2020. This action changes and replaces the terms of PPP Act loans and adds flexibility that will be valued by many borrowers.
The Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 (PPPFA) (i.e., the PPP loan extension) has been signed into law. After receiving U.S. Senate approval on June 3, 2020, the amendment to the Small Business Act and the CARES Act was finalized on June 5, with the signature of President Donald Trump. Updating the Paycheck Protection Program of the Small Business Administration, the PPPFA adds much needed flexibility to the timing and forgiveness options than was allowed by the original PPP Act.
