Update as of June 11

On Friday, June 5, the President signed the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 and the SBA issued a new Interim Final Rule on June 11, 2020. The Act confirms that June 30, 2020 remains the last date on which a PPP loan application can be submitted to and approved by the SBA. To provide adequate processing time, we will stop accepting PPP applications on June 16, 2020. Receipt of an application by June 16 does not guarantee that a PPP loan will be processed by us and approved by the SBA by the June 30 deadline. 

The Act provides more flexibility for borrowers, including:

  • Extends the time frame to spend the funds (covered period) from eight weeks to 24 weeks.
  • Lowers the payroll threshold amount from 75% to 60%. Forgiveness will be reduced proportionally if payroll does not meet the 60% threshold. 
  • The amendment added refinancing of an SBA EIDL loan made between January 31, 2020 and April 3, 2020 as an eligible expense. The other expenses eligible for forgiveness still include rent, mortgage payments, utilities, and interest on loans. 
  • Extends the payment deferral period to the date the SBA remits the borrower’s loan forgiveness amount to the lender or, in the event the borrower does not apply for loan forgiveness, up to 10 months after the covered period ends.

In addition, the minimum loan term for all new PPP loans approved on or after Friday, June 5, 2020 will be five years. 

The Flexibility Act also requires the SBA to revise the Forgiveness Loan Application. We will update the SBA PPP Loan Forgiveness web page when we receive the revisions. As a reminder, required forgiveness documentation includes IRS quarterly filings that are due based on the quarter that ends June 30, 2020. Therefore, no loan forgiveness applications will be accepted PRIOR TO JULY 1, 2020. We will proactively reach out to all PPP clients when we are ready to begin accepting applications.

More specific information will be distributed when additional guidance is issued.
