New ATBS e-book details PPP loan forgiveness process
After assisting more than 1,300 owner-operators with Paycheck Protection Program loan requests totaling more than $10 million since the CARES Act was passed in March, business services provider ATBS is releasing a new e-book that guides owner-operators through the process of PPP loan forgiveness.
The company previously released a guide to help owner-operators obtain the loans. The new “Owner-Operator’s Guide to PPP Loan Forgiveness” walks owner-operators through loan forgiveness topics, including:
- PPP forgiveness forms
- Forgiveness of payroll and other expenses
- Documentation requirements
- Forgiveness application deadlines
- Repayment of the loan, if necessary
- Taxability of loans
- The appeal process
- Real-world examples
ATBS is also encouraging owner-operators to take advantage of the extended PPP loan application deadline of Aug. 8, which was signed into law by the President on July 5.
