Earlier today, the SBA and Treasury updated their FAQ’s to extend the due date for repayment of funds to give borrowers an opportunity to review and consider yesterday’s updated FAQ’s.
Under question 47, the Treasury sates that the “SBA is extending the repayment date for this safe harbor to May 18, 2020, to give borrowers an opportunity to review and consider FAQ #46. Borrowers do not need to apply for this extension. This extension will be promptly implemented through a revision to the SBA’s interim final rule providing the safe harbor.”
This guidance provides taxpayer’s additional time to consider the impact of yesterday’s guidance regarding companies with loans under $2 million being deemed to have made the required certification concerning the necessity of the loan request being in good faith.
