Updated: Feb 13
These times are chaotic and unprecedented, and we are all in this together. With many businesses experiencing drastically reduced revenues and tight financial situations, here is a list of options to help your company financially.
Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
The paycheck protection program (PPP) option will help you keep your employees paid during these hard times, which is essential to your business's health. Some business owners might want to note that the small business association (SBA) will forgive loans used to compensate employees for payroll for up to eight weeks. Any loan repayment will be deferred for six months to ensure the business can get back to an operational state. If you are an approved small business or any of the companies listed in this description, check out these loans to keep your business afloat during the pandemic.
