Message from Ken Bertrand, President and CEO of Allied First Bank
 
I’m encouraged to see businesses start to rebound and continue to be impressed by the resilience and dedication of so many small business owners in our community.
 
We continue to work with the SBA on the Paycheck Protection Program and Forgiveness as it makes updates and improvements.
Business owners now have more time and flexibility to spend PPP funds to qualify for forgiveness. And the new 3508EZ forgiveness application form will make it easier for some businesses.  We’ll let you know when you can start to apply.  
 
You may be able to use the EZ form if you meet one of the following:
• Are self-employed and have no employees
• Did not reduce the salaries or wages of your employees by more than 25% and did not reduce the number or hours of your employees
• Experienced reductions in business activity as a result of health directives related to COVID-19 and did not reduce the salaries or wages of your employees by more than 25%
 
We’ll help you navigate the process, including whether you can use the new 3508EZ form.
 
We’ll keep in contact with the SBA and expect to start accepting Forgiveness requests for Paycheck Protection Program loans by mid-August. Remember you’ll need to request Forgiveness through the lender that funded your PPP loan.
 
Please don’t worry about rushing to apply for Forgiveness; it’s most important now to take the time to focus on your business and document your PPP spending through your Covered Period.
 
If there’s a portion of your loan that is not forgiven, payments won’t be due until the after the SBA has made their Forgiveness decision or remits the funds or 10 months after the end of your Covered Period.
 
We’ll keep providing you with the very latest information. Please continue to check here for the latest updates. 
 
Best wishes and be SAFE!  Enjoy the start of summer.
 
Sincerely, 
Ken Bertrand
