    CARES Act PPP abuse?

    Yes. We have about 35 employees. All but about 8 was on unemployment. We have almost all back on payroll now. Our concern is people filing for FMLA....and the new rules.

    CARES Act PPP abuse?

    We found the PPP money in the account yesterday. Just in time really. There was consideration for full shutdown as we were very underwater.

    CARES Act PPP abuse?

    Well's Fargo was one of the three banks we applied with. It was comical really, as they didn't have us "apply" initially but prescreened us with "how much loan are you asking for?" Synovus asked for a little more info initially and United Community Bank (UCB) was a full-on application asking for all the financials and such. UCB was ultimately who we used. jc

    I'm sad to hear this. Your bank should know this by now.

    I have been informed by our bank that our PPP funds are approved. That will easily be accomplished in my case.

    CARES Act PPP abuse?

    It is confusing. What it took from us was an enormous # of calls to Banks, other small business owners, and accountants. We also got on a couple of webinars that were "specialists" of the SBO.

    Thank you for applying for a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan with XXXXX XXXXXXX. Bank. Below is an overview of the next steps with regard to your application. Once we have all of your information, the Small Business Administration (SBA) requires us to verify the accuracy of your application. That means that we must review your payroll calculations and all documentation that you submitted, and certify that your loan request is based on accurate numbers and calculated correctly. This takes time, and we appreciate your patience. After we verify the accuracy of your loan request, the next step is for us to submit your PPP application to the SBA through their system, E-Tran. All customers for whom we have received an E-Tran approval from the SBA will receive a notification to that effect at the end of the day. Due to the volume, we are not able to reach out individually as each approval is received. If you get to this point and decide that you want to cancel your application for any reason, please email XXXXXXX XXXXX with your request. Once we receive the E-Tran approval and we have a complete application with all required supporting documentation, our PPP/SBA system will send you the SBA note and borrower final application to sign. This is the key step. Please remember that, as a condition to the PPP loan, you must certify in your PPP application that current economic uncertainty makes your PPP loan request necessary to support your ongoing operations. In other words, if a PPP loan is not necessary to support your ongoing operations as a result of the current economic uncertainty, you are not eligible for a PPP loan. Once you sign your note, you can expect that funding will be forthcoming. If you have a XXXXXX XXXXX Bank checking account, we will deposit the funds into the checking account or use ACH. Please note that, at this time, the U.S. SBA has not released the SBA note to the banking community. We hope to receive that today, April 7, 2020, but we will not fund approved loans until we have received the note from the SBA. We know you are eager to have your application approved and the funding in your account. Please bear with us as we work through the extraordinary amount of loan applications we have received over the past few days. We will continue to update our XXXXXXXXX page and will post to our social channels (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) with the latest information. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    CARES Act PPP abuse?

    We sent 3 applications through 3 local banks. All three processes were different. One asked us for superficial information and it felt like a prescreening. There was no information of our expenses or anything. Another at least asked us how much money we need but nothing else. The third asked us all kinds of stuff. We provided the payroll information/cost (actual documents). We provided some business financials and business information. Off to the races on who can accommodate us. jc

    CARES Act PPP abuse?

    All joking aside.....no kiddin'. Diz I hope you were successful. My small business has 35 employees. All but about 8 are drawing unemployment. Last Friday and Saturday, we were making tons of calls to get this PPP going. The bankers were confused as hell and they didn't have all the answers. The Gov "system was down" for awhile and the banks couldn't do anything. We got the application done with the bank that could figure it out the quickest....as we as many...are concerned the funds will run out. No doubt, without the funds......we will close. Our bills are huge and they won't stop. We can't provide jobs now either. Our fear is...even if we get the loans...the gov has extended/loosened the unemployment rules. If we get the funds, our staff may not come back and stay on unemployment. Why not? They may be able to receive more money for doing nothing through the end of the year. I haven't thought about politics one bit during all this. I don't care who is sitting up there. There will be many shattered dreams regardless. I haven't been in my house in 3 weeks. I haven't touched or hugged my wife in 3 weeks. I'm exposed to COVID at work. Extended family many miles away and alone. We all could keep these kinda statements up.... Sadly, yea.....There will be those that poach this process of government stimulus. jc
  19. Thanks for the tip. I have shipped with this method for decades a substantial amount of times. The tubes are in a rigid box with some "compression" with closing. The amp is bubble wrapped... then in peanuts with "compression". The two boxes are touching nothing but peanuts and closed with "compression". There will be no shifting. I purposely show my packing.....as Ive done this multiple hundreds of times. If you shake the box.....dead still and quiet. I probably shipped out about 40 heavy items in the last 3 years including vintage tube amps and other amps and vintage receivers. On ebay....I show the pictures of how I package just like I've done here. So far....no issues. jc
  20. That appears very similar to a 510 for sure
