New funds have been added to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) as part of the $900 billon COVID-19 relief package passed in December 2020. In this second round of funds, called PPP-2, small businesses can now use these funds for cloud & software upgrades.
“Covered operations expenditures (payments for any business software or cloud computing service that facilitates business operations, product or service delivery, the processing, payment, or tracking of payroll expenses, human resources, sales and billing functions, or accounting or tracking of supplies, inventory, records and expenses)”, referenced on page 49 of Business Loan Program Temporary Changes; Paycheck Protection Program as Amended by Economic Aid Act.
Many businesses were suddenly faced with new challenges when shifting to remote work caused by the pandemic. Companies that were still using on-premise technology were at a disadvantage.
