Within the portal, you will have an opportunity to upload required documents which depend upon whether you are (1) a new PPP applicant, (2) applying for a second PPP loan from Freedom bank, (3) applying to a PPP second draw loan, but did not get the first PPP loan with Freedom Bank. Each one of these scenarios has different documentation requirements that are detailed HERE.
For more information on PPP 2, please read below:
If you have already received a PPP loan, below are the key details regarding program changes and eligibility for a second PPP loan:
A second PPP loan will be available for businesses with fewer than 300 employees and that sustained a loss of revenue of 25% relative to the prior year comparable fiscal quarter.
Restaurants and hotels (NAICS code 72 will be eligible for 3.5x average monthly payroll) and all other business will be eligible for 2.5x.
Loan size is capped at $2mm and the total of the two loans cannot exceed the initial $10mm cap.
Expenses paid for with PPP loans will now be considered tax deductible.
Expenses eligible for forgiveness have been expanded to include the following (if your loan has already been forgiven, you are excluded from this change):
Operational expenditures: business software, payroll software, HR, billing functions, accounting, tracking of inventory
Property damage: vandalism or lootings that is not covered by insurance (during 2020 only)
Supplier costs: POs, perishable goods, or inventory
Worker protection: screens, cough guards, or any structure to be in compliance with new health codes from the CDC or DHHS
PPP Loans under $150,000 will have a one-page forgiveness application.
501(c)(6) organizations that are not lobbying organizations such as chambers of commerce, trade associations, and boards of trade are now eligible if they have fewer than 150 employees.
If you did not apply for or receive a PPP loan in the first round, you have another opportunity to apply for one now. The program guidelines are largely unchanged, except the maximum loan amount is now $2 million and eligible businesses must have 300 employees or less (excluding NAICS code 72 businesses).
