Paycheck Protection Program & Forgiveness

Accounting Paycheck Protection Program PPPSBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has stopped accepting applications, and funds are making their way to small businesses across the United States. Attention is now turning to how to administer the use of the PPP funds to achieve the best possible outcome in relation to cash flow and forgiveness. The program allows for total loan forgiveness through authorized expenditures per the loan agreements; however, there may still be amounts that will require repayment if a business is unable to satisfy the criteria for full forgiveness.

To help businesses prepare, we’ve provided some suggestions on the accounting for PPP funds as well as high-level forgiveness considerations. This summary is not intended as a dive into the details of the forgiveness mechanics, that’s a separate topic warranting its own forthcoming summary but will provide you with an overview.

We're Here to Help...
