The CARES Act provides assistance to small businesses impacted by the coronavirus: grants, loans, employee benefits, and accelerated tax attributes. Congress did not, however, provide one-size-fits-all eligibility rules. Instead, small businesses must determine whether they are eligible for each provision. This webinar outlines the provisions in the legislation so that you help your clients determine what they are eligible for and how to apply for or claim the benefits.
