PPP Loan Consulting – Memphis Nashville (TN)

Tennessee PPP Loan Consultants

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created to help businesses survive pandemic-related challenges.  PPP is a federal loan program managed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) designed to provide needed funds to Memphis and Nashville (TN) businesses and organizations to keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The loan program has increased in popularity since introduced last year as part of the CARES Act.  This is because of the opportunity to receive 100% loan forgiveness.  The PPP has been updated dozens of times to ensure maximum flexibility and currently allows you to apply for a first draw (PPP1) or second draw (PPP2) loan for your business, depending on the need.

Tennessee PPP Loan Forgiveness

To receive full loan forgiveness a borrower must meet certain criteria established by the SBA. This includes maintaining employee count and compensation levels, spending loan proceeds on employee wages and other eligible costs. In addition, the borrower must ensure that at least 60% of proceeds are spent on payroll expenses. While straightforward, there are complex calculations that must be made to determine the forgiveness amount. In addition, borrowers are required to provide extensive documentation to support the application.
