Estate & Gift Opportunities in a Crisis
The present Coronavirus crisis has undoubtedly wreaked havoc on all our lives, impacting both our personal and professional worlds. The disruption has cascaded through pretty much all areas of the financial world leaving very few businesses escaping unscathed. Uncertainty has always been the enemy of financial stability and unfortunately, foundational questions about how long the recovery will take and what the future will look like post-crisis do not have clear answers. Understandably, this is a cause of worry and concern for many.
A look into the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program
The coronavirus pandemic, also known as COVID-19, has been an exercise in dealing with uncertainty. Faced with mounting operating expenses and coupled with stagnate or even declining revenues, many small business owners and entrepreneurs turned to their trusted banking partner to apply for Federal assistance under the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program. In less than two weeks PPP funding was exhausted. Through April 16th, the SBA reported that it had approved approximately 1.7 million loans via 4,975 different lenders totaling $342 billion in aid. The average loan size was $206,000, with the vast majority of loans totaling $150,000 or less.
