2021 PPP Round 2.
The PPP is back and in full effect as of 01/11/2021 and will end 03/31/2021. The short window of time to apply and the many changes will have an effect on your application. The Act changes PPP primarily in three ways.
First, the Act allows new PPP loan applications to be submitted by eligible applicants that never obtained a PPP loan.
Second, the Act permits some businesses that have already obtained a PPP loan to obtain a second PPP loan, called a "PPP second draw."
Third, the Act changes PPP rules-for existing PPP loans, new PPP loans, and PPP second draws-in the areas of eligibility, allowable expenses, forgiveness, and more.
Whether you already have an existing PPP loan, are interested in obtaining a PPP loan, or want to obtain a PPP second draw, the Act makes changes to PPP rules that may be relevant to you.
