PPP Flexibility Act – June 4th Update
COVID-19, PPP Loan


Congress came together and passed an update to the Paycheck Protection Program that will make the program a little easier to navigate. Assuming it is signed by the President, the new legislation will help small businesses maximize the use of the funds they’ve been granted. There is still accountability, but it is hoped that the program will grant a bit more flexibility than was initially allowed. 

If you haven’t yet received a PPP loan, you can STILL apply. THE DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR A NEW LOAN IS JUNE 30TH.

Here’s how the new PPP Flexibility Act changes PPP Loan Forgiveness:

  • Extends the forgiveness period for expenses to 24 weeks (formerly just 8 weeks)
  • Extends rehiring deadline
  • Decreases former payroll spend requirement from 75% down to 60%, freeing monies for other expenses
  • Extends program through December 31
  • Extends loan terms from two (2) to five (5) years
  • Payroll tax deferment for businesses that received PPP loans
