HOW TO MAKE YOUR PPP MONEY A GRANT, NOT A LOAN
When: Wednesday, September 23 | 1-2 p.m.
Where: Online webinar

In response to the financial impact COVID-19 has had on small businesses, the US Small Business Administration [SBA] introduced PPP. The PPP was designed to relieve some of the financial stress the small business community was facing. While many small businesses have already received funding and others are awaiting funds, there are important guidelines governing the program. These critical guidelines govern how the money is to be used and tracked.

Adhering to these guidelines will determine whether the PPP money you received is a grant [which does not have to be repaid] or a loan [which must be repaid]. This webinar will teach you how to spend and track PPP money so you can minimize what you have to repay.

This webinar will be conducted by a CPA firm that specializes in working with small businesses.
