The Small Business Administration is no longer accepting Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan applications from most lenders, including American AgCredit. The current round of PPP funding had been set to expire on May 31, 2021.
Going forward, the SBA will only accept new applications from community financial institutions. The SBA will continue to fund approved PPP applications that are in progress from other lenders but will not accept any new applicants.
Please visit the Small Business Administration’s PPP web page for the latest information: https://www.sba.gov/funding-programs/loans/coronavirus-relief-options/paycheck-protection-program
Please be advised that the covered period on your first draw PPP loan will conclude on the day the funds are disbursed for your second-draw PPP loan, as the two loans cannot overlap.
If you are a sole proprietor Schedule F or Schedule C filer who received a first draw PPP loan after Jan. 1, 2021, please be sure you have allowed enough time to incur the appropriate amount of expenses to achieve full forgiveness of your PPP loan.
Example – If you are a sole proprietor with no employees who received a PPP loan for $20,833, that amount represented compensation to you. Your covered period will need to be at least 2 ½ months to have the loan amount covered 100% by your payroll expense and therefore receive full loan forgiveness. If you choose a covered period shorter than 2 ½ months, you will need to declare non-payroll expenses to achieve full forgiveness. We strongly recommend that you consult with your accountant before filing for forgiveness.
PPP LOAN CALCULATION FOR SECOND DRAW
Given that you have had a PPP loan in the past you may be eligible for a Draw Two loan. Eligibility for this loan is determined by proving there was a drop in gross revenues of 25% or more between the same quarter in 2019 compared to 2020 or a total annual drop in revenue between 2019 and 2020. In order to prove you have experienced a 25% reduction in revenue during this time period, you can use one of the documents below;
- Internal quarterly statements
- Bank/Checking Statements from the corresponding quarters
- Tax returns
