Cherry Bekaert’s PPP Loan and Employee Retention Credit (ERC) teams will dive into the details of changes made to both PPP loans and the ERC, all of which are very favorable and provide immediate cash flow benefits to businesses that qualify. They will review the expanded list of qualifying employers, the extended deadlines and the new provisions that open up these benefits to more companies and individuals.
