Loans made to small businesses under the Paycheck Protection Loan program under Section 7(a) of the Small Business Act.
Paycheck Protection Loans may be used for payroll costs, utilities, rents and certain existing debt service payments and will be guaranteed by the U.S. government.
We understand the importance of time. Once we receive the required documentation for your loan request, we can generally close within 7 business days. Leader Bank is a preferred SBA lender, which allows quick turnaround time.
Generally, Businesses or tax-exempt Non-profits with less than 500 total employees which were operational on February 15, 2020 should be eligible.
The maximum PPP loan is equivalent to 250% of the Applicant’s average monthly payroll costs during the preceding calendar year or $10 million, whichever is less.
The SBA guaranty fee is waived for Payroll Protection Loans, and we will minimize any other costs.
The loan term will be 2 years at a fixed interest rate of 1.0%. Payments can be deferred for 6 months.
The loan proceeds could be used for payroll, rent, utilities, interest on mortgage payments, and interest on other debt incurred in the last 12 months.
The applicant must submit SBA Form 2483 (Paycheck Protection Program Application Form), 2019 profit and loss statement, and payroll documentation such as payroll processor records, payroll tax filings, or Form 1099-MISC
