PPP Updates

As expected the House passed the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 this afternoon (5/28). The Senate is expected to take up the bill next week.


Highlights from the House Bill:


  • Covered Period - Extended from 8 weeks to 24 weeks

  • Payroll Spend Rule - Rule changed from 75% to 60%

  • Loan Maturity - Extended from 2 years to 5 years

  • New Headcount Exemption - “Exemption Based on Employee Availability”

  • If you are unable to restore your headcount by 12/31/20 and can document it is related to several specified reasons in the Act, your forgiveness will not be impacted

  • Forgiveness Application Deadline - 10 months after the last day of the covered period

  • Deferred Employer Payroll Taxes - Businesses received loan forgiveness can defer certain employer payroll taxes


We do not expect the Senate to rubber stamp the House bill. Stay tuned for more updates related to these potentially significant changes to the PPP Program.
