CPAR - 2020/July, Seg.04 - When You Ask for Forgiveness ...

Course Overview
Congress has now passed the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (PPPFA) of 2020 that changes a number of provisions in the original PPP loan program enacted as part of the CARES Act. A week prior to the PPPFA, SBA had issued an Interim Final Rule (IFR) addressing PPP loan forgiveness. The IFR answers some, but not all, questions surrounding loan forgiveness; additional guidance is expected to be issued, as well as loan forgiveness application modifications in accordance with the new law. Barbara Weltman, president of Big Ideas for Small Business, walks us through the changes in the new guidance.

  • Identify the key elements the interim final rule addresses relating to PPP loan forgiveness,
