Celeri Network Has Been Featured In

We are in trying times and often end up having more questions than answers. The PPP loan program is no different. I have previously worked with a larger bank only to run into delays and dealing with representatives that were ill equipped to give answers to basic questions.

By luck I came to your company website and I immediately reached out. My first contact was with Tim Lan. What a refreshing experience compared to our big banks. Tim responded immediately and was very knowledgeable and most importantly has a genuine desire to help his clients. He quickly sorted through the confusion for me and got our application on the way. While we live socially distant and work remotely I want to make sure to take the time to recognize when I see a person doing a great job for his employer.

Applicants who fall in this category will need to provide documentation such as “payroll tax filings reported to the Internal Revenue Service, Forms 1099–MISC, and income and expenses from the sole proprietorship, as determined by the (SBA) Administrator and the (Treasury) Secretary.”
    What's the difference between the PPP and EIDL?
    The CARES Act includes different types of relief programs for small businesses. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a loan that is calculated as 2.5X your monthly payroll. The PPP can be applied for through our site. The Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) is separate and must be applied for through the SBA.
    What is the interest rate and fees?
    The interest rate for PPP loans are 1%. Loan fees are waived.
    How do I get loan forgiveness?
    You can request forgiveness of the principal of the loan for the 24 week period after you get the loan. Make sure the loan is covering: (1) payroll costs, (2) rent, (3) mortgage interest, (4) utilities.

    60% of the PPP must be used for payroll costs for forgiveness. Loan forgiveness will be reduced if you decrease your full-time employee headcount.

    Any part of the loan that is not forgiven is repaid over 5 years.

    Note: there are technical calculations for this law and you should seek out your own financial and legal counsel for understanding loan forgiveness and how it applies to your situation.
