The Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act and What We Need To Know
Webinar Learning Sponsored by Assurance
Monday, July 20
 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Presented by Mark Gallegos, CPA Senior Tax Manager and Megan Angle, CPA Senior Manager of Porte Brown

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act committed over $2 trillion to alleviate the impact of the pandemic on U.S. businesses. The CARES Act created the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which provides short term loans to companies with fewer than 500 employees. The loan is fully forgivable provided certain circumstances are met. Not only have those circumstances generated a multitude of questions, it has led to changes from successive administrative guidance
as well as new legislation. We will discuss the latest in PPP forgiveness, including the new provisions added by the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act. This Virtual event will take place on Monday, July 20 at 9:00 AM.  Members will be provided the opportunity to ask questions via the chat function on the webinar. Registration is FREE; however please note pre-registration is required. Login credentials will be sent to registered attendees the day before.
