SBA issues FAQs on revenue reduction, max loan amount calculations for second-draw PPP loans

With the Paycheck Protection Program portal reopening for all lenders this morning, the Small Business Administration today issued a set of frequently asked questions that address how to calculate revenue reduction and maximum loan amounts for second-draw PPP loans, as well as the documents borrowers must provide to back up these calculations.

Second-draw loans are available for borrowers with 300 or fewer employees that experienced a 25% or greater revenue drop in 2020 compared to 2019 and that have used or intend to use the full amount of their first-draw PPP loan by the time they receive their second draw loan.
