Additional PPP Regulations
On Friday SBA issued an Interim Final Rule - Revisions to Loan Forgiveness IFR and SBA Loan Review Procedures IFR. The big news is that they answer the question: does a borrower have to wait until the end of the eight- or 24-week covered period before applying for loan forgiveness? The answer is a borrower can apply when it so chooses. “A borrower may submit a loan forgiveness application any time on or before the maturity date of the loan – including before the end of the covered period – if the borrower has used all of the loan proceeds for which the borrower is requesting forgiveness.” (emphasis added) Elsewhere, however, the new rule states, “If the borrower applies for forgiveness before the end of the covered period, it must account for the salary reduction for the full 24-week covered period (totaling $1,200).” So, the rule is that before applying for forgiveness, make sure staff salaries are restored to at least 75 percent of pre-pandemic pay, staffing levels are back up, and the money is fully spent.
