Q5: $ PPP - What changed, and should I apply ?
Today leaders asked questions around the $ PPP fund changes and application process. In this 3 minute episode I mention the main points (including why "the early bird gets the loan", and the difference between leaders who can apply today vs. April 10th). Following are more details (and the schedule of the next free zoom webinars that go over both the EIDL and PPP loans and application process in detail); Here are the important changes: The loan rate has changed from .5% to 1% The loan repayment period is reduced to 2 years from the 10 years Proceeds for any advance up to the $ 10K on the EIDL loan, will now be deducted from the loan forgiveness amount on the PPP loan Small businesses and sole-proprietors can apply for a loan as of April 3.  Independent contractors and self-employed individuals can apply for PPP loans as of April 10. The maximum loan amount is the lesser of $10 million or an amount calculated using a payroll-based formula specified in the CARES Act. Independent contractors do NOT count as employees for PPP loan calculations or loan forgiveness At least 75% PPP loans proceeds must be used on payroll costs (whether or not used in the 8 week period eligible for forgiveness and to be eligible forgiveness such payroll cost must be paid during such 8 week period). The regulations say this change is required because of the “finite appropriations” made to support the PPP. “Payroll costs” definition change means businesses are eligible for loan forgiveness based on the after tax pay to employees (after FICA and income tax are withheld) not the gross pay made by the employer. The best course of action is to contact your bank and get a copy of their loan application and apply as soon as possible. These loans are available until June 30 or until the money appropriated for these loans runs out.

Q3: How do I quickly get $$$ to keep employees during these COVID-19 times ?
Today, CEO’s asked; “Birgit, How can I quickly get $$$ to help me keep my employees during these COVID-19 times (as I don’t have the time to read all the info in the CARES act or research other options while trying to keep my company going ?"  Listen to this 7-min episode for 3 options, which I summarized from hours of conversations with CPA's, lawyers, bankers, a Workforce Solutions HR consultant, and one of the SBA lender relations specialists who worked past 5pm tonight to provide me with great resources ! 1) EIDL loan = Economic Injury Disaster Loan (loans up to $ 2 million, 3.75% interest, 30 years, $ 10K grant) 2) PPP loan = Payroll Protection Program (NOT FINALIZED YET, but looks like loans for the lesser of up to $ 10 million or 2.5x average monthly payroll costs, with interest of 0.5% but can be fully forgiven if can prove that they were used for payroll) 3) TWC's Shared-Work Program (supplement funds where you may reduce hours of your employees by 10-40%, and out-placement services via Workforce Solutions for employees you do need to let go via their rapid response team) NOTE: The early (qualifying) bird gets the loan, and you may benefit from all 2 options at the same time (as long as you don't double-dip as I explain in this podcast). For DAILY guidance by the SBA, join them on the live zoom webinars they are providing between now and April 3rd at 8:30am, 10:30am, 1:30pm, and 3pm CST; https://www.sba.gov/offices/district/tx/houston Additional info follows: EIDL website for applying for is www.sba.gov/disaster  You may also contact the SBA disaster customer service center: • 1-800-659-2955 • e-mail disastercustomerservice@sba.gov PPP Lenders may begin processing applications as soon as April 3, 2020 • List of SBA Lenders is at www.sba.gov/tx/houston under “corona virus” TWC's Shared-Work funds: If you have questions, call 512.340.4337 or 888.741.0446 or email at ui.sharedwork@twc.state.tx.us Workforce Solutions out-placement services; https://www.wrksolutions.com/for-employers To ask your current question, and/or to receive a free copy of the "10 Most Costly CEO Blindspots", please visit ceoblindspots.com Your leadership partner, Birgit Kamps https://ceoblindspots.com/
