The latest advice on PPP loans
Accountants played a crucial role in helping millions of organizations, most of them small businesses, receive $525 billion in Paycheck Protection Program loans last year. Now, the PPP is back and businesses will again be looking to CPAs for advice and assistance in accessing the program, which provides forgivable loans that borrowers can use for payroll and other essential expenses as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to roil the economy. What do CPAs need to know about the new PPP? How is it different from the program that ran for five months before its loan application window closed in August? And what should accountants be doing to help businesses access the $284 billion available in the PPP’s second iteration? Those topics and more are addressed by Erik Asgeirsson, president and CEO of the AICPA’s business subsidiary CPA.com, and Lisa Simpson, CPA, CGMA, the AICPA’s vice president–Firm Services. What you’ll learn from this episode: * When lenders can start submitting PPP loan applications to the U.S. Small Business Administration. * Details about the new PPP second-draw loans. * Why many banks won’t be submitting PPP applications at the beginning of the application period. * What the AICPA has been doing to support the accounting profession with the PPP over the past nine months. * Why it is important for PPP borrowers to have two paths they can take in pursuing a second-draw PPP loan. * More information about the CPA Business Funding Portal (see link in resources below). * What CPAs can do to help businesses prepare for increased SBA scrutiny of PPP loans. * The importance of helping businesses know their E-Tran number from their first PPP loan. * Why firms will play a more important role in the second round of the PPP. * The importance of keeping the intent of the PPP in mind when choosing the accounting method for calculating the decline in gross receipts to determine whether a business qualifies for a second-draw loan. * Whether a business seeking second-draw PPP loans must spend all its first-draw PPP loan before the second-draw funds are disbursed. * That some banks may require PPP borrowers to file for forgiveness on their first loan before processing a second-draw application.

Retirement Plan Live 2020: Unexpected Retirement - Trish and Lynn’s Retirement Goals
Welcome to week 2 of Retirement Plan Live 2021! Last week, in episode 359, you got to meet Trish who was unexpectedly laid off last year. She had been hoping to retire within 5 years, but with this layoff, she is exploring the idea that maybe she can retire now. Over the next few episodes, we will walk her through the steps I take with clients to create and test a retirement plan. “You are never too old to set another goal or dream another dream,” -- C.S. Lewis. What is a goal? Before we begin, let’s examine what a goal is. Simply put, a goal is something you want to achieve in the future. We often have larger goals and smaller, more immediate goals. They should be a stair step to your bigger vision. All of my goals stem from my values and vision. Before coming up with your goals, it is important to have a clear understanding of your values -- articulate them and define them. The idea is that your goals help you to live out your values. Have you defined your values, vision, and goals? Needs and wants Let’s talk about needs, wants, and wishes. I like to create 3 categories of spending when creating a retirement plan. This way we can determine a person’s level of fundedness. The first category is the needs category. This is what a person needs to live their baseline life. However, it doesn’t mean simply eating rice and beans every day. Trish estimates that she needs $10,000 per month to live comfortably. The next area is the wants category. One of Trish’s wants is a convertible when they move south. What kind of wants would you put under this heading? Can Trish dream big? The last section we examine is wishes. This is where you dream big without holding back. Some people struggle with this, but others take on this challenge whole-heartedly. Are you able to dream big? What are your most extravagant wishes? Listen in to hear what Trish includes in her wishes, and maybe you’ll find some inspiration for your own planning. Create your own retirement plan If you would like to follow along and do these same exercises on your own, be sure that you are signed up for the 6-Shot Saturday email newsletter to receive worksheets each week to examine your own retirement readiness as we work through this Retirement Plan Live with Trish. Are you curious to discover whether Trish has what it takes to retire? Sign up for the live webinar with Trish on January 28 at LiveWithRoger.com. This is when we put Trish’s retirement plan to the test to see if she can retire now or if she needs to continue working for the next few years. Don’t miss out!
