HARRISBURG, Pa. – (July 22, 2020) McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC attorneys Timothy M. Finnerty and Nicole Stezar Kaylor, Corporate and Tax co-chairs will present on the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 on July 28th at 12 pm. One substantive CLE credit has been approved.

The newly enacted Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 (PPPFA) provides borrowers with extended forgiveness periods, less stringent forgiveness requirements, and longer repayment terms. While the new Act solves many problems created by the PPP, it also creates a growing list of questions.

Join our business and tax professionals, Timothy M. Finnerty and Nicole Stezar Kaylor for a lively and informative discussion on the most talked-about provisions of both programs:

  • Considerations for requesting a loan
  • PPPFA provisions – what has the new Act changed?
  • Eligibility and considerations for loan forgiveness
  • Applying for loan forgiveness: how soon can you do it?
  • Preparing to be audited
