Both small and large businesses have been significantly impacted by the effects of COVID-19 and have had to make critical decisions over the last few weeks. To facilitate our clients who own businesses, we have compiled relevant information and possible actions in light of the current difficult business conditions and the enactment of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law on Friday March 27, 2020. This piece of legislation is the third round of federal support in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. It builds off the previous two bills passed to provide more support to individuals and businesses, including changes to tax policy. This is an aggressive action on the part of our government to aid in the challenges our economy faces. Additional measures are expected over time to continue to build on these supports.
