Footnotes & Information
1. Estimations for informational purposes only. Payroll and salary estimates assume the borrower used the standard PPP calculation of 2.5 x average 2019 monthly payroll costs to determine PPP loan eligibility. Calculation methods vary based on entity type. Please read the latest official SBA PPP calculation rules for a full explanation of PPP loan amount calculation methods.
2. If a company's reported number of employees divided by the maximum PPP range amount per the SBA is greater than $100,000, the estimated maximum PPP loan received by the company can be adjusted down to assume no more than $100,000 yearly salary per employee was used in the PPP application. While employees at the company may earn more, $100k / employee is the maximum amount that can be used in PPP eligibility calculations.
3. Since the PPP eligibility will include a maximum of $100k in salary expenses for each employee in the qualifying period, the minimum number of employees required to be eligible for a given PPP loan amount can be calculated by the following equation: ((LOAN AMOUNT/2.5 months) * 12 months) / 100k max salary. If a company reports fewer employees than this amount on their PPP application, it is likely because they had more employees on payroll during the qualifying period.
