2020-40: More PPP changes coming


The House is expected to vote next week on the Paycheck Protection Flexibility Act, a bipartisan bill. The bill would make the following changes to Paycheck Protection Program loans:

  • Allow forgiveness for expenses beyond the eight-week covered period. This would help businesses that are prohibited from opening their doors, or those that will only be allowed to open with restrictions;
  • Eliminate restrictions limiting non-payroll expenses to 25% of loan proceeds;
  • Eliminate restrictions that limit loan terms to two years;
  • Allow businesses that take PPP loans to also take payroll tax deferrals; and
  • Extend the June 30 rehiring deadline, to offset the effect of enhanced Unemployment Insurance.
