As the impact of COVID-19 continues throughout the construction industry, many businesses are finding it difficult to make payroll and pay other essential business expenses. Fortunately, help is on the way through the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which provides more than $2 trillion in stimulus to the U.S. economy. As a part of the CARES Act (and the previously enacted Families First Coronavirus Response Act), small businesses have been provided with many beneficial tax credits and tax deferrals, and the Small Business Administration (SBA) now has a new loan program called the Paycheck Protection Program that includes forgivable loans. 

We are providing contractors with advice on the credits, deferrals, and programs that are available under these new laws, as well as assisting contractors in deciding which program works best for them.  Further, should contractors decide to move forward with an SBA loan under the Paycheck Protection Program, we will prepare the initial application free of charge. While we cannot guarantee you will be accepted, we can work with you and ensure that your application is complete and contains all requested information necessary for the loan to be processed.

The fixed price cost for this consultation is $400.00.

Please contact us today for more information at 1-866-303-5868 or info@cotneycl.com.
