Frequently Asked CARES Act Relief Funding Questions

  • Can I get the loan forgiven? Many business owners applied for financial relief but aren’t sure if they will have to repay the funds. They don’t have the time or expertise to research, discover, and implement the processes involved to ensure the loans are converted to grants, transferring them to a forgiven status.
  • How much of the loan can I get forgiven? The federal government has placed specific guidelines around the use of relief funds. The COVID-19 team at Trusted CFO Solutions is prepared to assist you in determining the amount you can have forgiven based on your situation.
  • Do I have the proper documentation to prove our eligibility? And, if I do, how do I deliver to the SBA and Lender? Do you know what documentation is required to prove you are eligible for forgiveness? This information is critical to help keep the standing of your relief funds forgiven.
  • What do I do if the SBA and lender start asking questions I can’t answer? If you aren’t an accountant or specialist who is knowledgeable in the CARES Act plan, your business requires someone to help with the SBA and your lender’s questions.
  • How do I examine cash flow issues and determine which expenses are best to eliminate? What do you do when you reach a negative profit status, your cash flow is zero, and/or you have no credit to support your company during the meantime?
  • How long can our business survive if this crisis lasts for an extended time? How do I budget accordingly? This crisis could be ongoing. Knowing which expenses to cut and which to keep is a crucial part of your company’s survival.
  • Who can I talk to to get my questions and concerns answered?
