SBA ISSUES TWO SETS OF NEW REGULATIONS AND CONGRESS INTRODUCES BIPARTISAN PPP IMPROVEMENT BILL
On Friday evening, the SBA issued Interim Final PPP Forgiveness Rules and a second set of interim rules on SBA audits and appeals. The new PPP rules go beyond the forgiveness forms, and provide timely insight into maximizing forgiveness and the role of the borrower, the lender and the SBA in the process.
However, these new interim rules are meaningless in a vacuum without “knowing where the law is going. “ It is almost certain that Congress will make major changes to the PPP program and understanding these changes is critical to providing solid advice.
Finally, the 19 pages of Interim Final Rules on SBA loan review procedures and related borrower and lender responsibilities set forth guidance on SBA audits and appeals. Knowing the audit and appeal process will help you with developing a solid strategy within the law.
In this class, Marty and Bob will cover:
1) The new forgiveness rules,
2) The new audit and appeal rules
3) The important proposed changes in a Bipartisan bill, followed by a robust Q&A period.
Topics covered will include:
