The Treasury Department just issued additional guidance (#47 on FAQ) on the Paycheck Protection Program. *Taken directly from the FAQ linked above.
47. Question: An SBA interim final rule posted on May 8, 2020 provided that any borrower who applied for a PPP loan and repays the loan in full by May 14, 2020 will be deemed by SBA to have made the required certification concerning the necessity of the loan request in good faith. Is it possible for a borrower to obtain an extension of the May 14, 2020 repayment date?
Answer: Yes, SBA is extending the repayment date for this safe harbor to May 18,
2020, to give borrowers an opportunity to review and consider FAQ #46. Borrowers do
not need to apply for this extension. This extension will be promptly implemented
through a revision to the SBA’s interim final rule providing the safe harbor.
