Footnotes & Information
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.
