Paycheck Protection Program Advisory 


Introduced as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economy Security Act (CARES Act), the PPP IS designed to provide direct incentives for small businesses to keep workers employed during the COVID-19 crisis.

Our collective expertise and industry experiences allow us to help clients make informed decisions on PPP participation and answer important questions including:

  • How do I apply for a PPP loan?
  • What documents do I need to submit or maintain?
  • When can I apply for forgiveness?
  • How do I qualify for loan forgiveness?
  • What happens if my loan does not meet forgiveness requirements?
