New legislation has been approved which made changes to the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

Under the new legislation, small businesses will now have up to 24 weeks to use their PPP loans and the deadline for rehiring workers is extended from June 30 to the end of 2020. Additionally, the amount of the loan that must be used toward payroll expenses has been lowered from 75% to 60%. Click here for details.

If you received a PPP loan from FAIRWINDS, we encourage you to review the Loan Forgiveness Application and begin collecting the necessary documentation to complete the application. A checklist is provided below to assist with this. We will inform you by email and on this website page when the loan forgiveness online application portal is live.

 

PPP Loan Forgiveness - EZ Application

You (the Borrower) can apply for forgiveness of your Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan using the SBA EZ Application if you can check at least one of the three boxes below.

  • The Borrower is a self-employed individual, independent contractor, or sole proprietor who had no employees at the time of the PPP loan application and did not include any employee salaries in the computation of average monthly payroll in the Borrower Application Form (SBA Form 2483).

  • The Borrower did not reduce annual salary or hourly wages of any employee by more than 25 percent during the Covered Period or the Alternative Payroll Covered Period (as defined here) compared to the period between January 1, 2020 and March 31, 2020 (for purposes of this statement, "employees" means only those employees that did not receive, during any single period during 2019, wages or salary at an annualized rate of pay in an amount more than $100,000);
    AND
    The Borrower did not reduce the number of employees or the average paid hours of employees between January 1, 2020 and the end of the Covered Period. (Ignore reductions that arose from an inability to rehire individuals who were employees on February 15, 2020 if the Borrower was unable to hire similarly qualified employees for unfilled positions on or before December 31, 2020. Also ignore reductions in an employee’s hours that the Borrower offered to restore and the employee refused. See 85 FR 33004, 33007 (June 1, 2020) for more details.

  • The Borrower did not reduce annual salary or hourly wages of any employee by more than 25 percent during the Covered Period or the Alternative Payroll Covered Period (as defined here) compared to the period between January 1, 2020 and March 31, 2020 (for purposes of this statement, "employees" means only those employees that did not receive, during any single period during 2019, wages or salary at an annualized rate of pay in an amount more than $100,000);
    AND
