    Demand for PPP Cools Due to Worries About Loan Forgiveness

    Could the tax deadline get extended again? The White House is considering it! Also, demand for the Paycheck Protection Program among small businesses has suddenly cooled, in part due to worries about bad PR and potential issues with loan forgiveness. We've got a survey of accountants showing how firms are handling coronavirus. Furthermore, the SBA has halted new applications for EIDL loans and is capping the amount at a fraction of the former max, the IRS is asking people to send back stimulus checks mailed to dead people, and more.

    Let the PPP Blame Games Begin

    Let the PPP Blame Games Begin

    Before it could even get started, round two of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) ran into problems with the SBA website failing to handle the deluge of applications from banks both big and small. The blame game intensifies, with private schools joining public companies on Sec. Mnuchin's naughty list. Meanwhile, the Justice Department is launching an investigation of possible PPP application fraud, and the IRS decided that PPP loan-related expenses will NOT qualify for tax deductions. Finally, the AICPA urges PPP loan forgiveness guidance and makes recommendations, and we've got a survey of small businesses showing how the PPP is working out for them.

I enjoy listening on my morning runs but you guys are getting over the top dooms day depressing! There ARE ways to track the PPP funds! Google the QBO solution! Your underlying anti Trump tone forbids you to see the GOOD going on with all of the govt funding. Any other President and you might be less whiny about the efforts to help businesses, small and large. I know of A LOT of businesses that have received the funding. But you say it’s not getting to businesses. Perhaps because those businesses don’t keep their books so they are scrambling to apply?? Why should a bank or MY govt give money to businesses who can’t even show a 2018 return?? How about being more helpful to thoseof us trying to build businesses and less dreadful about everything else.

A must-listen for everyone in the accounting industry

I am surrounded by accountants every day. I work at an accounting firm, so my colleagues are accountants. Not only that, our clients are also accountants (who outsource their clients' bookkeeping work to us). Plus, our firm is searching for other tech-savvy accounting firms to acquire. So it's really helpful for me to stay up to date on the latest news and trends in the world of cloud accounting. The knowledgeable hosts, Blake and David, make it easy -- and fun! I'm almost tempted to start requiring that all my employees at BooksTime listen to it.
