Update on PPP Loan

Message from Jennifer Roberts, CEO of Chase Business Banking

I’m excited to share that on Tuesday we expect to begin accepting applications online for first and second-time PPP loans.  I hope this will help your business.

If you’re thinking of applying, here’s how to prepare:

  • Review the highlights of the program

  • Gather key documents

  • Open a Chase business checking account here or at your local branch, if you don’t have one. You’ll need an active business checking account to apply with us. It may take up to 10 days upon account opening before you are able to apply for a PPP loan. You can apply on the 11th day.

 

You may also want to contact your accountant, attorney or other trusted advisors.

Keep checking back here for updates. Thank you for being a Chase customer.

PPP Overview: first and second-time borrowers

First-time borrowers (including affiliates) in general:

  • Can have no more than 500 employees (or fewer or more for certain business types for certain SBA size standards)

    • Accommodations and Food Services companies with NAICS code 72 can have no more than 500 employees per physical location

  • The loan can be up to 2.5 times the business’ average monthly payroll costs, up to a $10 million loan maximum (or $20 million for a corporate group)

Second-time borrowers (including affiliates) in general:

  • Can have no more than 300 employees

    • Accommodations and Food Services companies with NAICS code 72 can have no more than 300 employees per physical location

  • The second loan can be up to 2.5 times the business’ average monthly payroll costs, up to a $2 million loan maximum (or $4 million for a corporate group)

    • Accommodations and Food Services companies with NAICS code 72 can borrow up to 3.5 times the business’ average monthly payroll costs, up to a $2 million loan maximum

    • The business must have experienced a revenue reduction of 25% or greater in 2020 relative to 2019. In general, a borrower may calculate this revenue reduction by comparing quarterly gross receipts for one quarter in 2020 with the gross receipts for the same quarter in 2019. A business that does not file quarterly or was not in operation for all four quarters of 2019 may still qualify; see the SBA guidelines for details.

  • Used or will use the full amount of the first PPP loan for authorized purposes on or before the expected date of disbursement of the second PPP Loan
