(Money Man 4 Business Do Not Charge Any Fee For The Application.)
President Biden has made changes to the PPP loan program.
A common challenge many self-employed individuals face is that they may not have yet to file their 2020 taxes. You can provide your lender a draft of your 2020 Schedule C that you will file with the IRS.
New Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) rules that allow eligible self-employed individuals who file Form 1040, Schedule C, to calculate their maximum loan amount using gross income instead of net profit. This may increase the amount of funding most eligible self-employed individuals can qualify for.
Only Five Steps if you want to use 2020 information for your PPP loan application prior to filing your 2020 taxes. March 31, 2021 PPP2 ends for new applications.
- Now New Changes. More funding for PPP2, You may qualify for PPP2 for more funding.
- No longer using Line 31, Use Line 7, Gross Income, Schedule C
- Use Gross Income, divide in to 12 months, multiply by 2.5 = Your Benefit.
- Self-Employed, Independent Contractors, and Gig Economy Workers can Apply for PPP Loan Prior to filing 2020 Taxes.
The Paycheck Protection Program remains open for First and Second Draw PPP loans until March 31, 2021, as set forth in the Economic Aid Act, or until Congressionally appropriated funding is exhausted. The maximum amount of a Second Draw PPP loan is $2 million.
Eligible Entities Have a Second Chance to Receive a PPP Loan
There are many businesses who were not able to receive the first round of PPP loan and many businesses also requested for a 2nd round of PPP loan. So, the new proposed bill allows new and old business to receive 2nd round of PPP loan only if they meet the required eligibility.
Eligible Entity: Schedule C or F, income and expenses from a sole proprietorship, or bank records (not a schedule F farmer or Schedule E landlord), An LLC or other entity treated as a partnership or an S Corporation that meets following requirements:
- Businesses at least have a 25% reduction in gross receipts in a quarter in 2020 compared to same quarter 2019. The gross receipt will include all revenues of the business including expenses from the business normal operation for the purpose of this 25% rule.
- Business must have less than 300 employees or meet an alternative size standard.
Were you not in Business in 1st, 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2019?
If a business was not in operation during the 1st, 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2019 which is from 1st January 2019 – 30th September 2019 but were in operation during 4th quarter of 2019 which is between 1st Oct 2019 – 31st Dec 2019, they can compare the 1st, 2nd or 3rd quarter gross receipt of 2020 which is between 1st Jan 2020 – 30th Sep 2020 with the 4th quarter of 2019 gross receipt to calculate the 25% reduction in gross receipt.
Not in Business in 2019 but were in Business by February 15th, 2020?
If a business was not in operation during whole 2019 but was in operation by February 15th, 2020, then such businesses can compare their gross receipt of 1st quarter of 2020 (January 1st, 2020 – March 30th, 2020) with 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2020 (April 1st, 2020 – June 30th, 2020) to see the gross receipt reduction.
Are you a seasonal business? or a New Entity? Or a business with multiple physical location?
If you are a seasonal business, then the maximum amount of PPP round 2 loan is explained below:
The Loan amount will be calculated based on the average monthly payroll cost for a 12 week period selected by the loan applicant. The date must begin from February 15th, 2019 or March 1st, 2019 and ends on June 30th, 2019. If the above dates do not fit for you then alternatively the business may elect any consecutive 12 weeks (any 96 consecutive days) period starting from February 15th, 2020 and ending before January 1st, 2021 multiplied by 2.5. But the loan amount cannot exceed more than $2 million.
For new businesses, the loan amount can be calculated based upon average monthly payroll costs up through the date the business applies multiplied by 2.5. Again, loan amount cannot exceed $2 million.
Multiple Physical Location Businesses:
For businesses with multiple physical locations, the maximum loan amount for 2nd round of PPP loans is stated as follows:
Maximum $2 million can be the total amount of all covered loans and the Administrator shall not substitute ‘not more than 300 employees per physical location’ for the term ‘not more than 500 employees per physical location’ in paragraph (36)(D)(iii).
Businesses owned 20% or more by Chinese entities are not eligible to receive the 2nd round of PPP loan.
Publicly traded businesses and entities affiliated with the People’s Republic of China are on the list of entities that cannot qualify for a new PPP loan.
