Deciding whether the client needs to get an audit done on their Covid-related SBA loan?
That depends on whether the client got a PPP or EIDL loan. If you got a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan from the Small Business Administration, the answer is no. The PPP loans are from the SBA, administered through a lender. The onus is on the lender to determine whether or not the client spent the money correctly. But if you got an EIDL (Economic Impact Disaster Loan) the answer is yes, only if the loan amount is equal to or greater than $750,000. The EIDL comes directly from the SBA to the recipient. Since there is no financial institution as an intermediary, which would do an audit.
Conducting internal or external audits for government entities, non-profits, and small businesses that received PPP or EIDL loans can be a lengthy and complicated process. Accounting professionals need to understand the procedures for recording these loans, documenting expenses paid for with loan funds, and auditing the forgiveness application and accompanying documentation.
This Online CPE webinar is designed to review the procedures for recording these loans, documenting the expenses paid for with the loan funds, and auditing the forgiveness application documentation to decide on the probability that forgiveness will be granted.
Internal and external auditors for financial institutions granting PPP loans will also have to audit the PPP loans granted by the financial institution, and any PPP loans purchased or sold on the secondary market.
