👉 "We have a lot of questions about the Paycheck Protection Program — how to avoid having to pay it back, information about the audit, and so on — can you help us?" (3-minute read)

The second round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has been launched by the Small Business Association (SBA). Just like the first round, this promises to be a difficult and confusing situation to navigate for borrowers. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was created with the best intentions, but there is a lot at stake and a lot of questions that have yet to be answered by the SBA to clarify loan forgiveness. In this article from IMPACT Controller Eric Choma, get all of the information you need to know about how to get the PPP loan forgiven, what the audit process may look like, how to manage surplus funds, and more.

👉 "Why is understanding the back-end of our company's website so important? What do we need to know about it?" (6-minute read)

Coding truly seems a foreign language, and in many ways, it is. For the non tech-savvy, a page of computer code can be intimidating and disorienting. However, at the same time, many non-coders might need to make changes to their website copy or structure. How much access should a business have to the inner workings of its website? In this interview with IMPACT Senior Developer Tim Ostheimer, learn how much access you should have to the back-end of your website, how much control an agency should have over your site, and why these seemingly unimportant topics are so critical.
