Returning PPP Borrows:
Applying for the Second Draw under the Paycheck Protection Program
Borrowers interested in applying for Second Draw funding under the amended PPP are not required to submit additional documentation to substantiate payroll costs if the borrower, (i) used 2019 payroll figures to determine their First Draw PPP loan amount, (ii) plans to once again use 2019 payroll figures to determine their Second Draw PPP loan amount, and (iii) the applicant uses the same lending institution to apply for their Second Draw PPP loan as used to apply for the borrower’s First Draw PPP loan.
PPP Second Drawn funding: Most borrowers can apply to receive 2.5x their average monthly payroll costs, based on 2019 or 2020 payroll costs. Those businesses in the restaurant and hospitality industry, with an NAICS code beginning with 72, can receive up to 3.5x their average monthly payroll costs.
To qualify for Second Draw PPP loans: Borrowers must have received a First Draw PPP loan, must have used, or will use the full amount of such First Draw PPP loan on or before the expected date the Second Draw PPP loan will be disbursed to the borrower, and must employ 300 employees or less.
To be eligible for a Second Draw PPP Loan: The borrower must have experienced a revenue reduction of 25% or greater in 2020 relative to 2019. A borrower must calculate this revenue reduction by either (i) comparing the borrower’s quarterly gross receipts for one quarter in 2020 with the borrower’s gross receipts for the corresponding quarter of 2019 or, for Borrowers who were in operation in all four quarters of 2019, (ii) if they experienced a reduction in annual receipts of 25% or greater in 2020 compared to 2019 and the borrower submits copies of its annual tax forms substantiating the revenue decline.
Borrowers must be prepared to upload documents evidencing their revenue reduction information during our online application process. Examples of such documentations are as follows:
- Bank statements
- Tax forms
- Quarterly financial statements
