How does PPP Loan Work?
The government’s efforts to help businesses have resulted in generous terms for PPP loans. Borrowers can receive two and a half times their average monthly payroll costs (excluding compensation in excess of $100,000 per employee) incurred 12 months before the date the loan is made (some lenders are simply using 2019 numbers). For example, if your monthly average payroll (excluding compensati excess of $100,000 salaries) in the last 12 months is $10,000, you may borrow up to $25,000. Additionally, you can include as payroll costs: payment for vacation, parental, family, medical and sick leave (that is not covered by another emergency loan/grant); payment for dismissal or separation; payment for group health care coverage, including insurance premiums; payment for retirement benefits and payment of state and local taxes assessed on employees’ compensation for More Information feel Free Email Us.
