LEGISLATIVE ALERT
Paycheck Protection Program Loan Forgiveness Calculator Available
As we announced on Saturday, May 16, the Small Business Administration (SBA) released the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness application and instructions providing PPP loan proceed recipients the long-awaited guidance on many of the undefined aspects of the loan forgiveness process. While many areas were clarified, additional guidance is needed in a variety of areas and the SBA has promised to provide that guidance in the near future in the form of an interim final rule. Once announced, we will provide you with that additional information.

PPP FORGIVENESS CALCULATOR AVAILABLE

The AICPA has an SBA Paycheck Protection Program resource page on their website that includes a downloadable loan forgiveness calculator that will automatically download an excel file when clicking the following link PPP forgiveness calculator . ( The current file was updated today, 5/21/20, and is still in draft form.)  This calculator is a useful tool for not only calculating your PPP forgiveness amount at the end of the forgiveness period, but it’s a great resource for projecting your forgiveness spending over the 8 week forgiveness period.

We are able to assist you in reviewing your forgiveness calculations to maximize your forgiveness. Please reach out to your engagement shareholder if you would like additional information about these services.
