PPP Loan Forgiveness - Cases and Examples

Choosing the Right Covered Period and Filling Out the Form


PPP loan borrowers face moments of truth:  Which covered period to choose?  The slow throttle 24 weeks or rapid fire 8?  When can the forgiveness app be filed? When should the forgiveness app be filed? Need you wait 24 weeks to file for forgiveness? What if there’s a drop in employee pay or headcount? How to know when a drop in pay or headcount endangers forgiveness or not?

There’s one way to answer all of these daunting PPP questions: via the study of cases and examples. If you plow through the right examples, you’ll get the hang of it. Patterns will emerge and so will your successful navigation through the PPP forgiveness maze.
