Small businesses and nonprofits – 501(c)(3)s, including religious organizations, with 500 or fewer employees; self-employed individuals and independent contractors. Business in certain industries can have more than 500 employees if they meet applicable SBA size standards for those industries. 

For purposes of loan eligibility, the CARES Act defines the term employee to include “individuals employed on a full-time, part-time, or other basis.” A borrower must, therefore, calculate the total number of employees, including part-time employees, when determining their employee headcount for purposes of the eligibility threshold.

This loan has a maturity of 2 years and an interest rate of 1%. The maximum loan amount is up to $10 million. (Note: Colorado Enterprise Fund’s PPP program has a maximum loan amount of up to $250,000.)

Businesses must be operating with paid employees on February 15, 2020; be able to certify the need for funds during the COVID-19 emergency, and be able to certify the use of funds to retain workers.

Applicant/Borrower will not be responsible for any loan repayment if:

  • Employee numbers and compensation levels are maintained; and
  • A minimum of 75% of the loan proceeds are to go towards payroll costs (and the balance towards eligible non-payroll costs.

Eligible payroll costs:

  • Salary, wages, commissions, and tips (capped at $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee);
  • Employee benefits including costs for vacation, parental, family, medical, or sick leave; allowance for separation or dismissal; payments required for the provisions of group health care benefits including insurance premiums; and payment of any retirement benefit; and
  • State and local taxes assessed on compensation.

  • Refinancing an SBA EIDL loan made between January 31, 2020 and April 3, 2020
  • If Applicant received an SBA EIDL loan from January 31, 2020 through April 3, 2020, Applicant can apply for a PPP loan

  • Latest form 941 filed
  • Articles of Organization Schedule C (if you are a sole proprietor)
  • Most recent personal Tax Return
  • Most recent business Tax Return

If you have employees, the following methodology should be used to calculate your maximum loan amount:

  • Step 1: Compute 2019 Payroll by adding the following:
  • Find your 2019 IRS Form 1040 Schedule C line 31 net profit amount (if you have not yet filed a 2019 return, fill it out and compute the value). If this amount is over $100,000, reduce it to $100,000. If this amount is zero or less, set this amount at zero.
  • 2019 IRS Form 941 Taxable Medicare wages & tips (line 5c- column 1) from each quarter plus any pre-tax employee contributions for health insurance or other fringe benefits excluded from Taxable Medicare wages & tips; subtract any amounts paid to any individual employee in excess of $100,000 annualized and any amounts paid to any employee whose principal place of residence is outside the United States; and
  • 2019 employer health insurance contributions (health insurance component of Form 1040 Schedule C line 14), retirement contributions (Form 1040 Schedule C line 19), and state and local taxes assessed on employee compensation (State Unemployment Tax Act or SUTA from state quarterly wage reporting forms).
  • Step 2: Calculate the average monthly amount (divide the amount from Step 1 by 12).
  • Step 3: Multiply the average monthly amount from Step 2 by 2.5.
  • Step 4: Add the outstanding amount of any EIDL made between January 31, 2020 and April 3, 2020 that you seek to refinance, less the amount of any advance under an EIDL COVID-19 loan (because it does not have to be repaid).
     

Documents you must provide:

  • IRS Form 1040 Schedule C if the applicant is a sole proprietor (with employees) for the following period ending December 31, 2019 (whether filed or not)
  • IRS Quarterly Form 941 (or equivalent payroll record)
  • State Unemployment Tax Act or SUTA from state quarterly wage reporting form
  • Evidence of any retirement and health insurance contributions
  • Payroll statement or similar doc from pay period that covered February 15, 2020 to establish you were in operations on or around February 15, 2020.
No. Independent contractors can apply for a PPP loan on their own so they do not qualify for purposes of a borrower’s PPP loan forgiveness.  (Unless you are an independent contractor applying for yourself.)

If you currently have a pending application with another lender, it may be faster to pursue an existing application rather than submit a new one with Colorado Enterprise Fund.

We encourage you to reach out to your lender to confirm that your application is still in the pipeline for submission. However, if you have not heard back from your lender or have no confirmation of your pipeline status, or in other words, consider your application “abandoned”, you may submit another application with us.

If you are a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization, here are the steps to follow in the Owner/Authorized Signer tab of the application:

Step 1: Under “Owner Name”, put in the name of the authorized signer for the entity

Step 2: Select the “business entity” option (not “individual”)

Step 3: Enter the authorized signer’s title (e.g. President, Executive Director, etc.)

Step 4: Provide the TIN for the entity

Step 5: Under owner’s SSN, provide the SSN and date of birth for the authorized signer. You will also need to upload a photo ID for the authorized signer.

Step 6: Provide authorized signer’s address

Step 7: Provide name, address and date of birth for any additional authorized signers or officers for the organization

Step 8: Upload photo IDs for each listed authorized signer or officer

Step 9: Provide the date of incorporation for your entity and upload formation documents.
