Joe reviews the new SBA Paycheck Protection Program. Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act allows business to access resources to address challenges associated with COVID-19.  Specifically the forgiveable loans,Paycheck Protection, for payroll and overhead expenses.  Additional resources below for SBA Lenders in North Texas.

This situation is dynamic but this is the latest on what we are seeing as appropriate documents:

  • Documentation verifying the number of full-time equivalent employees on payroll as well as the dollar amounts of payroll costs, covered mortgage interest payments, covered rent payments, and covered utilities:
    • Federal Tax Returns – 2019, if completed
    • Payroll Tax Reports
    • IRS Forms 941, 940, W-3, etc
    • Other Items as necessary
  • Copy of Borrowing Authority and Affiliate Listing (if applicable):
    • Certificate of Incorporation/Formation filed with the state
    • Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws
    • Company Agreement
    • Partnership Agreement
