If I choose an alternative Covered Period for my payroll costs, how do I calculate my payroll schedule for the forgiveness application?
Posted by Armanino Financial Advisory Team
The alternative payroll schedule ensures you don’t have to move your pay dates to match your Covered Period and enables you to more easily calculate costs for the forgiveness application. If your payroll schedule starts four days after your loan is funded, you can start counting your covered payroll on the first day of the next pay period (example: your loan funds on May 6 and your next pay period starts on May 11, you can start your Covered Period on May 11 for Payroll Cost purposes only). You may not change your Covered Period dates for non-payroll costs.
