May 14, 2 p.m., The Paycheck Protection Program: Who Gets Audited? Why? And How to Protect Yourself. Details
Now that many businesses have taken advantage of PPP loans, some are worried that they may be audited and have to defend their "need" at the time of the loan. Stuart McCallum with HHM CPAs walks us through the legal implications of the PPP, how likely are you to be audited and what steps can you take now to defend yourself. Justin Groenert, the Chamber’s Vice President of Public Policy will also join us for a brief update on some of the rules regarding the PPP.
We converted our ChattanoogaChamber.com homepage to feature COVID-19 business resources, including:
- A guide to shopping local and online to support our small businesses
- How to give or get help
- Resources for people who have been laid off and employer resources for keeping employees, going remote, etc.
We also post updates in the news section of our website and via our social media platforms.
All Chattanooga Chamber business events scheduled through April 30 are postponed, cancelled or switched to streaming or teleconference format. Find specific event updates here.
