We are starting this week by looking at the biggest news and trends in accounting: PPP loan forgiveness, processing the rehiring of the furloughed staff, and the latest in IRS tax relief options.

By Michael Cohn

And finally some updates from the PPP loan forgiveness sphere. SBA and the Treasury Department have issued additional information on loan forgiveness. 

The PPP was included as part of the CARES Act, the $2.2 trillion program that included economic impact payments to individuals and aid to businesses in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The program initially launched on April 3 with $349 billion in funding to help small businesses keep their doors open and retain their employees. The loans would be forgiven as long as businesses retained their employees for up to eight weeks.

However, there were many questions, many of them still answered with regards to loan accessibility and now forgiveness. Read the latest from Accounting Today to see what can be forgiven and how.
