In recent blog published by Deltek, Baker Tilly shared top questions we encounter related to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Addressed in the blog are the following questions:
- My company performs government contracts and we received a PPP loan. If the SBA forgives our loan, do we have to give the government credits on our contracts?
- My company’s PPP Loan amount is $2 million, but we incurred more than $4 million in payroll costs during the 24-week application period. How do I know which payroll costs we need to credit?
- Only 15% of my company’s work is federal government cost-reimbursement contracts; the rest is Labor Hour (LH) and Firm-Fixed Price (FFP) contracts. The DCAA’s audit guidance doesn’t mention those. We didn’t include payroll from the cost-reimbursement work in our forgiveness application. Will the government have an interest in the forgiven payroll costs related to our LH and FFP contracts?
- How should the receipt of the PPP Loan proceeds be recorded in the General Ledger?
- What steps should the company take to determine the best use of the PPP Loan proceeds?
- Can you provide some best practices for how to calculate that projection of impact on rates?
- What about projecting the impact of these higher or lower rates on billing and revenue?
