AICPA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan Forgiveness Matrix

The AICPA just released a new resource to help you navigate through various engagements or other services around documenting expenses related to PPP forgiveness – the PPP Loan Forgiveness Services Matrix.

To make it even more valuable, AICPA’s Firm Services/PCPS team has embedded links into the matrix that connect to sample letters for various engagements and documentation, along with links to guidance that CPA firms should consider for each type of service and the relationship they have with the client.

The AICPA anticipates making updates to the contents of this resource to incorporate future changes related to the PPP loan forgiveness process; AICPA Professional Standards; and best practice recommendations, as necessary. In addition, the AICPA's Firm Services/PCPS team continues to post new tools regularly to its SBA PPP resources page.
