SBA Issues New PPP Regulations, What You Need To Know Part 2


Recommended Posts

Hi, Natalie here. 

We ended Part 1 of this blog with the SBA’s definition of gross receipts which is consistent with SBA’s size regulation 13C.F.R. 121.104. This is another great reason to check out the SBA’s website www.sba.gov or go to your local SBA office for additional information.

Beginning Part 2, we start with expanding on this rule from the New PPP Regulations:

“Any Forgiveness Amount” of a First Draw PPP Loan is Excluded from a Borrower’s Gross Receipts.”

Simply stated, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Forgiveness amounts from your first draw PPP loan are not included a gross income when adding up what your gross receipts were. Think of this as a tax deduction taken right off the top of your gross receipts.

Yes, I went there, taxes. As I write this, I’m preparing my client’s books for the tax pros who will be busy from February through April 15th. But, I digress, back to the SBA interim rules

If you want to dive into the SBA rule on forgiveness amounts, check out section 7A(i) of the Small Business Act. The takeaway from this section is that PPP forgiveness amounts are expressly excluded (they don’t count) from being taxed as income. This also makes sure you are not disqualified from receiving the second draw PPP loan because of forgiveness during the first draw PPP loan. Restated, you have a better opportunity to qualify for the second round of PPP loans.

The next line in the interim rules reads:

“Borrowers May Use any 365 Day Period Beginning on January 1, 2019 to Calculate Their Average Monthly Payroll Costs:”

The following is general in nature and not related to your specific situation, so stick with me, please?

The maximum amount any individual borrower my receive from the second draw PPP loan is the smaller amount of two and one half (2.5) months of the borrower’s average monthly payroll costs during that 365-calendar day period not to exceed $2 million. You have two options for calculating the time period.

  1. “The 1-year period before the date on which the loan is made.”
  2. “Calendar year 2019.”

You have some flexibility here as you can choose any 365-day period starting on 1/1/19. It may be an exact calendar year or may be any period of 365 days between 1/1/19 and today. An example based on the federal government fiscal year is starting on 10/1/19 and ending 9/30/20.

Here’s quote from the Interim Financial Rules if you’d like to read the ‘official’ language:

“Subsection (f) of the IFR uses “calendar year 2020” to refer to “the twelve-month period prior to when the loan is made.” Calculating payroll costs based on calendar year 2020 rather than the twelve months preceding the date the loan is made will simplify the calculations and documentation requirements for borrowers because payroll records are more commonly created and retained on a calendar-year basis. Allowing borrowers to calculate payroll costs based on calendar year 2020 is also not expected to result in a significant difference in payroll costs compared to the twelve months preceding the date the loan is made because all Second Draw PPP Loans will be made in the first quarter of 2021.”

To wrap up this blog, we’re going to dive into another section of the Interim Financial Rules:

“Calculation of Average Monthly Payroll Costs for NAICS Code 72 Entities That Qualify as Seasonal Employers or as New Entities:”

If you are a seasonal employer or new entity that is not a NAICS Code 72 business this is for you, but wait. A NAICS Code 72 business is defined as “businesses in the accommodation and food services sector”. Here’s where it gets a bit deep and potentially confusing. A NAICS Code 72 business may also be considered as seasonal employer or a new entity. 

I know, what appears to be typical government legalese and double speak. Hang in there as I do my best to translate this for you.

The Interim Final Rules clarify this by stating that when your NAICS Code 72 business fits into one of these separate categories… Here’s where the seasonal employer/new entity and NAICS Code 72 business are joined. These businesses MAY calculate their payroll costs used to determine their loan amount… 

  1. …based upon the formula that applies to the entity, OR 
  2. the standard formula used to calculate payroll costs for every other type of borrower…

while still being allowed to use the 3.5 times multiplier that is applied to NAICS Code 72 entities under the new Act.

Wading through government regulations can be challenging and this blog series will continue with Part 3. We’ll start with: 

“Bankruptcy Prevents Borrowers from Receiving a Second Draw PPP Loan:”

I may be able to shed some additional light on these new rules, so contact me if you want to talk this over or do my best to answer specific questions about these new rules.

See you back here for Part 3.

      People- 80% of business issues stem from85% of the world lives in the quadrant “good at their job, but don’t like it.” Find people that share your core values- everyone values things differently, if they don’t share the same core values it doesn’t make them a ‘bad person.’  Kicking vs pulling back- would you rather have an employee you need to pull back vs someone you have to ‘kick?’ Discovering your core values- pick 3 people you admire most in your organization (if you had 100 of them you could take over the world), if not in the organization then 3 people in your life you admire. If you cannot choose 3, then really consider who you surround yourself with and who you hire in your business.    RPRS- right people, right seatRight people- fit the culture and share core values Right seat- get it (born to do the job), want it (want to come to work every day), and have the capacity to do it (tools, time and training)Wrong person, right seat/right person wrong seat Being the right person to implement EOS- love people (if you don’t love people then you can't lead, abundance minded, more afraid of status quo than change ExpectationsUnmet expectations lead to frustration Most owners aren’t clear about their expectations  How is overrated, who is underrated Completing and working a job is easy, finding the right people is hard Having the right people at your business means you can teach them the “what.” “Who Not How” by Dan Sullivan If you have enough money you don't have a problem If you don't have enough time you won't have enough money You can’t make more money by spending more time doing the “what” People that have freedom of time generate more money

      Key Talking Points
      Scan toolsCapability aspect- leads to stronger marketing and sales with the added capability to have a full-service repair Cost per use- tools being used daily vs tools purchased with intent on ‘attacking’ certain market/getting a reputation that can get it done (accepting collision jobs, need factory tools) Buying tools- who should buy them? The owner or technician? When the owner buys the tools they are essentially giving their employees a raise and allows access for every employee to use. The owner needs to invest in shop equipment that their employees need to have to generate profit Technician retention when an owner buys tools The owner must include tools on their insurance policy Training- most shops are underusing their toolsResearch and also read the service information because there is a learning curve with each one Consider doing once a week training with everyone involved Specialization- car lines vs certain specialized technicians

      Key Talking Points:
      VisionFor every 7 visionaries, there is 1 integrator- that 1 integrator will take your business to the next level.  Visionaries need integrators, integrators don’t need visionaries to be successful  “Rocket Fuel”- Gino Wickman and Mark Winters- Visionary and integrator relationship  Answer 8 questions in EOS to obtain your vision for the future (what are your core values, what is your core focus, what is your 10-year target, what is your marketing strategy, what is your 3-year picture, what is your 1-year plan, what are your rocks, what are your issues?) Answering the 8 questions comes from your team members as a collective group- employees buy into your business. Change “I” thinking to “we” thinking.  Core values exist in your organization they just need to be discovered. Starts with the business owner but includes the entire team.Integrity as an owner- integrate what you say with what you do Core focus- why and whatWhy-purpose, cause, and passion 10-year target- large goal, chase the horizonEnergize yourself and others around you Chase the lion, don’t run from it Marketing strategy- Marketing is “catching ears and eyeballs,” sales is “converting once they are caught.” “This list”- target marketing for best customers (geographic, demographic, psychographic)  3 uniques about your business- start by asking your customers. What do they want? What would they say about you? 3-year pictureHas revenue/profit/measurables What does it look like?  1-year planWhat must happen THIS year to hit the 3-year picture and 10-year target? Actual goals  RocksBig things that must get done in 90 days in order to hit 1-year plan How do you add rocks, pebbles, sand, and water to a bowl as full as possible? If you add rocks, pebbles, and water first then sand last the water will overflow. The rocks in the bowl are the most important. 90% of people live each day in the “important urgent” category and barely spend time in “important and not urgent.” Leadership is “important and not urgent” because you are working on your business instead of in your business.  Issue list VTO- big issues that can’t be handled this week or next week or next 90 days  Level 10  Shared by allShare once a quarter with your entire team- where the business is, where it is going and how to get there.  Resources:

      Many of us were once techs, but now hold the management role within our facilities - and as much as we'd love to say we're as technically proficient as we once were, the reality is technology is changing SO quickly that it's tough at times to stay on top of it! 
      Scan tools are being released at a dizzying pace, and the features required aren't what they were 5 years ago!
      In this episode of the ASOG Podcast, David and I talk with Brandon Dills of Jarhead Diagnostics about just that! 
      Brandon shares his scan tool choices and what tool, if he could choose only one, that he would purchase!
      We also talk some techncian perspective and there's even some dealer perspective in there! 
      Make sure you listen to the whole things, as there's some killer information mixed in 😉
