SBA Paycheck Protection Program

BOS is committed to helping our customers and our communities during this time of uncertainty. We are an SBA preferred lender and are available to assist with Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) applications and questions. The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll.

Loan proceeds can be used for:

  • Payroll costs, including benefits;
  • Interest on mortgage obligations, incurred before February 15, 2020;
  • Rent, under lease agreements in force before February 15, 2020; and
  • Utilities, for which service began before February 15, 2020.
Payroll costs include:
  • Salary, wages, commissions, or tips (capped at $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee);
  • Employee benefits including costs for vacation, parental, family, medical, or sick leave; allowance for separation or dismissal; payments required for the provisions of group health care benefits including insurance premiums; and payment of any retirement benefit;
  • State and local taxes assessed on compensation; and
  • For a sole proprietor or independent contractor: wages, commissions, income, or net earnings from self-employment, capped at $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee.

SBA Lenders, including BOS, began submitting applications for our customers on April 3, 2020. Although the program is open until June 30, 2020, we encourage you to submit your application to us as quickly as you can.

You will need to complete the Paycheck Protection Program loan application and submit it to BOS.

You will also need to provide payroll documentation. We recommend monthly data for the previous 12 months. This data can be provided in several way such as a spreadsheet or a download from your accounting software.

Additional information regarding PPP is available on the SBA website.

At this time of uncertainty, we feel it is also important to remind our customers to be vigilant and avoid scams tied to COVID-19 fears. Do not provide personal or account information to unknown sources over the phone, email or text message. The Federal Trade Commission is providing updated information regarding these scams at
