SBA Updates to the Paycheck Protection Program Loan Guidance
On June 22nd, 2020, the SBA provided updated guidance to the Loan Forgiveness Interim Final Rule. This new PPP guidance contains the following key updates:
Flexible Covered Period Option
A borrower may submit a loan forgiveness application any time on or before the maturity date of the loan – including before the end of the covered period – if the borrower has used all of the loan proceeds for which the borrower is requesting forgiveness. If the borrower applies for forgiveness before the end of the covered period and has reduced any employee’s salaries or wages in excess of 25%, the borrower must account for the excess salary reduction for the full 8-week or 24-week covered period.
S-Corp Owner Retirement Contributions Allowable
S-corporation owner-employees are capped by the amount of their 2019 employee cash compensation and employer retirement contributions made on their behalf. However, employer health insurance contributions made on their behalf cannot be separately added because those payments are already included in their employee cash compensation.
FTE Reduction Safe Harbor Date
The date on which borrowers need to have eliminated any reduction in salary/hourly wage greater than 25% or reduction in FTEs (Reduction Safe Harbor dates) has been updated to “anytime on or before December 31st, 2020.”
C-Corp Owner Compensation Clarified
C-corporation owner-employees are capped by the amount of their 2019 employee cash compensation and employer retirement and health insurance contributions made on their behalf.
