Dental Practice Insights

If you took out a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan during the pandemic, the MDS Dental Practice and Benefits Committee reminds you to be sure to stay on top of the loan forgiveness deadline. For example, borrowers who received funds in April 2020 and selected an eight-week covered period for the loan could face a deadline as early as this month. Borrowers are eligible for full forgiveness if they maintained staffing and compensation, used funds for eligible expenses, and spent at least 60% of the money on payroll during the covered period. Borrowers who do not seek forgiveness within 10 months after the last day of their covered period will need to start making payments. Check your loan agreement or reach out to your lender for more information.
