We are now in the third version of this product – no payroll paid IF you have $40K in fixed expenses. We haven’t heard that they are extending this so have a look if you are interested. You apply through your Bank.
Once your financial institution is offering the expanded CEBA, eligible businesses will be required to contact their primary financial institution to apply for these loans. There will be two CEBA application streams:
Payroll Stream: for businesses with total employment income paid to employees in 2019 greater than $20,000 and less than $1,500,000.
CEBA applications under the Payroll Stream will be completed directly through the financial institution in which your business holds its primary business chequing / operating account.
Once you will have completed your application, the Government of Canada will assess the application and inform your financial institution of the approval or decline of the loan. If approved, your Financial Institution will provide the funds into your business chequing / operating account.
Financial institutions provide application information to the Government of Canada to confirm eligibility. If successful, the Government of Canada will notify your financial institution and provide funding for your CEBA loan.
Non-Deferrable Expenses Stream: for businesses with total employment income paid to employees in 2019 of $20,000 or less and 2020 Eligible Non-Deferrable Expenses (subject to adjustments for support or subsidies under other Government of Canada COVID response programs) greater than $40,000 and less than $1,500,000.
CEBA applications under the 2020 Eligible Non-Deferrable Expenses Stream will follow a two-step process:
Step 1: Businesses will initiate applications directly at their primary financial institution where they hold their primary business chequing / operating account. The financial institution will then direct applicants to Step 2 of the application process.
Step 2: Following the initial application through your financial institution, applicants will be directed to a CEBA website to provide supporting documentation of the 2020 Eligible Non-Deferrable Expenses and to complete the application.
The Government of Canada will assess application information submitted via financial institutions in Step 1 together with the supporting documentation and information provided in Step 2. If successful, the Government of Canada will notify your financial institution and provide funding for your CEBA loan.
