PPP Loan Forgiveness Services

Expert Guidance on Maximizing Forgiveness

Obtaining a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan is complicated but, as many businesses have found, worth the effort. Seeking loan forgiveness, however, might prove to be even more difficult. The new PPP Loan Forgiveness Application issued Friday, May 15, has the look and feel of a tax return. Specific accounting and reporting of salaries and other eligible costs is required. All eligible expenses must be supported by documentation to be submitted for forgiveness. Complex calculations and contradictions in the regulations continue to up the ante in an already high-stakes arena.

To understand the process and increase the potential for obtaining loan forgiveness, many organizations are discovering that securing expert assistance is essential. This is exactly what our specialists deliver.

Expertise Precisely When It Counts

Our Paycheck Protection Program Loan Forgiveness Team comprises knowledgeable professionals who have monitored and maintained an up-to-the-minute understanding of federal regulations from the program’s first introduction through its continued evolution. Leveraging extensive experience, we have developed our own Loan Forgiveness Calculator to help ensure accurate projections and full compliance with the application requirements. As a result, we are ideally equipped to shepherd you through the steps required for loan clemency: freedom from repaying the PPP funds you received.

Know Greater Value

To ensure a tailored, cost-efficient solution that meets your specific needs, our services are available to you in one of two ways:

  1. Forgiveness Application Preparation
    All organizations can benefit from our assistance applying for forgiveness. The benefits our program offers are many; we prepare your application and:
    • Collect documentation that supports the reporting of eligible expenses, such as payroll and benefit records, rent, utilities, mortgage interest, among other data.
    • Determine the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) employees; this figure is required to perform an accurate loan forgiveness calculation.
    • Compute excess wage reduction amounts, if any, for loan forgiveness calculation.
    • Complete and review your final PPP loan forgiveness calculation prior to submission of the request to the bank or other appropriate entities.
  2. PPP Loan Forgiveness Consulting
    For loan recipients who wish to incorporate advance planning with the goal of maximizing forgiveness potential, we offer advisory services in addition to forgiveness application preparation. In this case, our team may assist in gauging your likely forgiveness amount and helping you formulate strategies for achieving an optimal forgiveness level. On your behalf, our specialists are prepared to:
    • Assist you in interpreting loan regulations.
    • Identify any potential issues or opportunities that might affect loan forgiveness.
    • Evaluate your risk profile.
    • Develop a spending optimization plan.
