COVID-19: Maximizing Relief for the Restaurant Industry


May 7, 2020

12:00 – 1:00 PM



Our COVID-19 response team recognizes that the coronavirus pandemic has made a significant impact on the restaurant industry. As one of the most affected sectors of this crisis, we invite you to join us on May 7th as we join forces with Managing Director Tod Bowen with the Ohio Restaurant Association to collectively share ideas, insight and resources around the SBA loan programs, lobbying efforts around changes to the PPP loan and how income tax change can create cash flow opportunities.

In this one-hour session, we will focus on some of the critical challenges restaurant owners are facing and what you can do to leverage the SBA loan programs and income tax benefits to provide much needed cash flows. Topics to be addressed include:

  • An overall update on SBA loan programs (PPP, EIDL) regarding further guidance and open questions
  • Diving into restaurant-specific impacts of the debt forgiveness formula
  • ORA’s perspective on whether we will see changes to the PPP loan
  • Income tax implications now creating cash flow opportunities

The business challenges are changing each day; you can count on GBQ to keep up.

This webinar qualifies for 1.0 hour of CPE.

Please note our webinar sessions can accommodate a maximum of 500 individuals. Should you experience difficulties accessing the live broadcast, it is likely due to reaching attendee capacity. For your convenience, a copy of the recording and materials will be provided via email to the address provided at the time of registration.
