A Holiday Miracle: New PPP Funds, Second Draw Loans & Tax Relief

Sick Dollar

To help our clients and other business owners and leaders respond to the unprecedented leadership disruptions caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the team at NAVIX offers the following crisis management information series.

A Holiday Miracle: New PPP Funds, Second Draw Loans & Tax Relief

In a surprising turn of events, Congress and President Trump acted, as part of yet another omnibus COVID relief package, to add new funds into the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and override the IRS’s previous attempts to tax PPP loan forgiveness.

Under the new act, an additional $284 billion has been allocated to the PPP program which was first created earlier this year under the CARES Act. The newly passed act also allows businesses that have already received a PPP loan to apply for a second loan under the “Second Draw” provision, albeit under stricter guidelines. To apply for a Second Draw PPP loan, a borrowing company must have fewer than 300 employees (down from 500) and must be able to demonstrate that it experienced a 25% or greater reduction in gross revenue during the first, second, or third quarter in 2020 relative to that same quarter in 2019. Second Draw PPP loans are capped at $2 million compared to $10 million under previous PPP guidelines.

The new act also directly addresses one of the most frustrating elements of PPP since the program was first made available—the taxation of PPP. Under the new act, the good news is PPP borrowers can deduct expenses paid for using PPP loan proceeds that are subsequently forgiven. The provision is effective as of the date of enactment of the CARES Act. The provision provides similar treatment for Second Draw PPP loans. This new law seems to finally close the door on the PPP taxation debate, and overrules multiple efforts by the IRS to assert that taxpayers would not be able to deduct expenses paid for with forgiven PPP loan proceeds.

As with any major piece of legislation, there are important provisions that will impact different taxpayers differently. Business owners and leaders should consult their tax advisors on these recent developments.

The NAVIX team has helped hundreds of business owners prepare for exit. We have also helped countless owners and leaders deal with recessions, liquidity crises, and economic upheaval. Our experience and perspective enable us to guide our clients through difficult times, such as these.

ALERT! IRS Affirms Non-Deductibility of PPP-Funded Expenses

By: Patrick Ungashick

Covid 19 Balance

To help our clients and other business owners and leaders respond to the unprecedented leadership disruptions caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the team at NAVIX offers the following crisis management information series.

Alert! IRS Affirms Non-Deductibility of PPP-Funded Expenses

In a move that will disappoint many business owners and leaders, the IRS has affirmed its earlier position that taxpayers cannot claim an income tax deduction for business expenses that would otherwise have been deductible if the payment of that expense results in forgiveness of a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan. The PPP loan program was created under the CARES Act passed earlier this year in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The guidance came in the form of a revenue ruling (Rev. Ruling 2020-27.) (A revenue ruling is a public decree from the IRS, instructing all taxpayers how the IRS will interpret and apply tax legislation. A revenue ruling is generally treated as a law.) Additionally, the IRS has issued Revenue Procedure 2020-51, which provides taxpayers with guidance on how to implement the IRS’s position.

This newest development comes even though some Congressional leaders, as well as some tax professional organizations like the AICPA, have previously disagreed with the IRS’s interpretation of this portion of the CARES Act.

The IRS’s guidance means a taxpayer cannot claim an income tax deduction for expenses used in the PPP loan forgiveness calculation. For companies that used PPP funds to pay expenses that ordinarily would have been deductible, the IRS’s ruling effectively increases a business’s net income and resulting tax liability.

Furthermore, the IRS states that if PPP loan forgiveness has not yet happened, borrowers cannot deduct expenses paid for with PPP funds this year (in 2020) if the taxpayer reasonably believes the loan will be forgiven next year.

Ultimately this affirmation by the IRS appears to likely stand, as there seems to be little serious effort out of Congress to legislate a different IRS interpretation of the CARES Act, especially with the US Presidential election over and COVID-19 continuing to spread.

Business owners and leaders must confer with their tax advisors to review the impact of this IRS action.

The NAVIX team has helped hundreds of business owners prepare for exit. We have also helped countless owners and leaders deal with recessions, liquidity crises, and economic upheaval. Our experience and perspective enable us to guide our clients through difficult times, such as these.

Company Sales Rebounding Despite COVID-19

By: Patrick Ungashick

Navix check

The COVID-19 pandemic brought many aspects of US society and business activity to a halt in March of this year, including sales of small to mid-market companies. Yet already there are signs that mergers and acquisitions activity (M&A) is rebounding for small to mid-market companies, an encouraging development for business owners who seek to exit from their companies by way of sale to an outside buyer. The emerging increases in company sales come after deal value in the US fell by 20 percent in the first half of 2020 to according to PitchBook Data. Deal value declined by one-third in the second quarter alone.

Buyers and sellers are coming back into the market, after pumping the breaks when the pandemic first hit. First, many companies have been largely unaffected by the pandemic. Other companies have adjusted their operations and are returning to profitable growth despite the ongoing public health challenges. Additionally, the upcoming US elections have spurred many business owners to resume exit planning out of fear of tax increases in the future.

Overall, the volume of sales of small to mid-market companies remains below pre-pandemic levels. However, signs point to the need for business owners to be ready to sell as the “window” reopens. In response, we recently published a new whitepaper, “Top 10 Signs You are Not Ready to Sell Your Company,” to assist business owners during these uncertain and changing times. Download a free copy to review if you and your company are ready to sell, or what it takes to get you prepared.
