Intelligent Paycheck Protection Program Automation for Lenders

Blog Post

The PPP is an enormous opportunity for creditors to help their communities in a time of crisis while adapting their business practices to the new reality.

TurnKey Lender is part of a global effort to mitigate the economic impacts of the Covid-19 crisis.

Covid-19 is changing the way business is done everywhere. Lenders who were once on the fence about digitalization are now compelled to go completely contactless.

Federal Government-Backed Relief for US Small Businesses

As a nimble pioneer of the lending-technology industry, TurnKey Lender has long provided creditors with an intelligent end-to-end solution that automates every step of the lending process. Now it plays a similar role for lenders operating under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), part of the $2 trillion stimulus package signed into US law on March 27, 2020.

The PPP, which is run by the US Small Business Administration, offers companies and nonprofits with up to 500 workers low-interest loans to cover up to two months of payroll and other employment-related expenses.

PPP Loans Are Forgivable But Lenders Are Guaranteed Repayment in Full

Part of the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the $350 billion PPP is meant to provide US small businesses with eight weeks of cash-flow assistance through 100% federally guaranteed loans.

Many PPP loans will be forgiven provided the borrower retains its workers and doesn’t cut their wages, with the US government stepping in to repay lenders for forgiven portions of the loans.

The interest rate on PPP loans is 1%.
