More Changes Coming to PPP

Late last week, the House of Representatives passed changes to the Paycheck Protection Program to give companies more flexibility. The House bill—which must go to the Senate for approval and President for signing—would extend the time period in which recipients must spend the proceeds from 8 to 24 weeks; allow more flexibility between payroll and nonpayroll expenses; remove a headcount penalty for rehiring laid off workers; and allows businesses participating in the PPP to benefit from payroll tax deferment. The House bill also extends the repayment term from two years to five years. The Senate also is exploring its own bill, which keeps the 75% spent on payroll requirement intact, but extends the length of time in which the loan must be used from 8 weeks to 16 weeks. Currently companies have until June 30 to apply for a PPP.
