Updates to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

* The PPP application deadline has been extended until May 31st, 2021. The Small Business Administration will have until June 30th, 2021 to consider applications.*

The $900 billion COVID-19 relief package recently signed into law set forth some important provisions that impact PPP, please review the key details below.

  • $284 billion in additional funding has been allocated for the Paycheck Protection Program.

    • Applicants must have fewer than 300 employees (excluding NAICS code 72 businesses).
    • Applicants must show a decline in revenue of 25% or more during any quarter in 2020.
  • Loans are now capped at $2M. For those who have already received a PPP loan, the total of the two loans cannot exceed the initial $10M cap.
  • NAICS code 72 (Accommodation and Food Service) businesses’ loan amounts will be based on 3.5 times average monthly payroll costs.
  • 501 (c)(6) organizations, that are not lobbying organizations, such as chamber of commerce and trade organizations are now eligible if they have fewer than 150 employees.
  • Expenses paid for with PPP loans will now be considered tax-deductible.
  • PPP loans under $150,000 will have a one-page forgiveness application.
  • Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) advances will no longer be deducted from PPP forgiveness requests. The SBA will be establishing procedures to return EIDL advance amounts already deducted from loan forgiveness.
