SBA Issues Interim Final Rule for Paycheck Protection Program

On April 2, 2020, the U.S. Small Business Administration issued an interim final rule providing guidance on the Paycheck Protection Program under the recently enacted Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). The interim final rule addresses topics such as the eligibility of 1099 independent contractors, calculation borrowing amounts, interest rates, and loan maturity among other topics.
