Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness Assistance
Assistance in Calculating PPP Loan Forgiveness
Organizations approved to receive, or who have already received funds from the Paycheck Protection Program, will need to begin addressing how to calculate their loan forgiveness.
The CARES act allows for covered loan forgiveness for borrowers who meet certain criteria. This has presented a unique opportunity for companies to borrow money on extremely favorable terms with up to 100% of the loan proceeds forgiven (for eligible expenses). There are income tax implications that should be reviewed and considered with each PPP loan.
The benefits organizations can receive from the loan forgiveness are too important to risk mistakes being made. At Calvetti Ferguson, we are working with borrowers to help them navigate the compliance requirements of the loan forgiveness program, to ensure forgiveness is received. Our team will work with you to help expedite the loan forgiveness process and provide a reliable and trusted source of information for your lender and the federal government.
