Course Description

When COVID-19 struck the United States, Congress Acted quickly to support small businesses by creating the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

The $349 billion Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) is one of the largest provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”, or the “Act”) enacted on March 27, 2020. The PPP provides funding to small businesses through federally guaranteed loans administered through Section 7(a) of the Small Business Act. On April 3, 2020, banks began accepting applications for PPP funding and by April 16, 2020 the $349 billion was depleted. On April 24, 2020, Congress enacted the Program and Health Care Enhancement Act which gave way to a second wave of funds totaling $321 billion for small business and certain non-profits under the PPP program as well as additional appropriations for CARES Act provisions related to healthcare providers. As expected, small businesses rushed to apply for PPP loans before the funds were exhausted. The program ended on August 8, 2020.

While the support was provided quickly the guidance to properly account for the funds was slow to come and the tax implications continued to be a moving target. This online CPE/CE course will cover the best practices in accounting for these funds as well as the tax implications.

To ensure your PPP loan is forgiven, you must keep your accounting records up-to-date.

Accounting for a PPP loan can be an overwhelming process. You may be asking yourself a number of questions, such as:

How do I record the PPP loan in my books?

How do I record certain PPP expenses?

If you’re curious about these PPP accounting questions and more, you’ve come to the right place.
