Small Business Relief

We came across a very helpful link with some solid information on assistance for small businesses.  Our key notes are below, but please click on the link at the bottom of the page for more information from the US Chamber of Commerce. We may add to this post. Check back or follow us on Facebook to get out updates.

Key take-away #1:

How can you get an SBA disaster loan?

  • Where to start: Apply online by filling out the appropriate forms and providing your business’s information. Once you download the forms for your application, check off “economic injury” as your reason for filing. Then follow the instructions and fill in the necessary information. Once you re-upload your application, you can check the status of it at any time by visiting the website.
  • What you need: Be prepared with some financial information and supporting documentation related to your business, like two to three years of tax returns, last year’s financial statements, a year-to-date financial statement, property leases, and a working knowledge of your business and personal credit score. A full list of supporting documentation can be found at the bottom of your application form.
  • How long will it take: The average for SBA to issue a Disaster Loan decision is 21 days. Within that time frame, a loan specialist will be in contact with you to figure out the amount and parameters of the SBA disaster loan. Once the loan documents are signed, funds are deposited via ACH within 3 to 5 business days.
  • Next steps: Stay in touch with your SBA loan representative at your local bank and SBA office.

Key take-away #2:

Employer tax credits. 

The law provides employers with fewer than 500 employees with refundable payroll tax credits to cover the cost of providing the paid sick leave and the paid FMLA leave to their employees. Specifically, the law states that:

  • Employers will receive 100% tax credit against their payroll tax liability up to the capped amount of benefits they must pay.
  • Health insurance costs are also included in the credit.
  • Self-employed individuals receive an equivalent credit.
  • If an employer is owed more than the capped amount and a refund is owed, the IRS will send the refund as quickly as possible.
  • Reimbursement will be quick and easy to obtain.
