Celebrating Juneteenth

June 18, 2020

Recognizing past honorees at our annual Black History Month Awards: Congressman Charles Rangel, 1010 WINS news anchor Larry Mullins, 100 Black Men NYC President Michael Garner, former NYC Veterans Affairs Commissioner Terrance Holliday and Black Shopping Channel CEO Cleveland Gary.
As we march towards economic justice and safety for all who live and work in our community; we need to remember that discrimination comes in many forms. Today, COVID 19 has exposed the economic discrimination in our system. The Greater NY Chamber has led the fight for $15 minimum wages in NY and now we see that our federal government is willing to pay unemployed low wage workers even more. Business needs labor and now there are Payroll Protection Program “PPP” loans” that are forgivable! Today June 19th 2020, we celebrate Juneteenth, a National Holiday that will help us remember Black History and the fact that we need more fairness and equal rights for everyone, regardless of the color of their skin. The Greater New York Chamber of Commerce commits to continuously fight and stand for freedom, justice and equality.

Paycheck Protection Program Reform Bill Passed - Helping Small Businesses

June 4, 2020

The Senate tonight passed by voice vote a House-passed clearing it for President Donald Trump's signature.

The legislation would give small businesses more time to use emergency loans under the program by extending the eight-week period in which they must use the money to qualify for loan forgiveness to 24 weeks.
The bill would also give small businesses more flexibility by changing the so-called 75/25 rule, which requires recipients of funds under the program to use three-quarters of the money for payroll costs and to limit other costs to no more than 25% in order to be eligible for loan forgiveness. The new ratio would be at least 60% on payroll and no more than 40% on other costs.

Changes Needed to be Made for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

May 29, 2020

Karen Kerrigan, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council - Small Business Updates
Karen Kerrigan, President & CEO of Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council talks about the important improvements and updates to PPP included in H.R. 7010 that will make it a more effective program for small businesses. The flexibility provided by these changes aligns with the practical needs of small business owners and evolving economic conditions on the ground. The pace of recovery will vary greatly depending on state and local re-opening timelines and guidelines, and demand. Many of the changes to PPP will give small business owners the room and time they need to respond to local conditions and market demand.

“Obviously, we supported a big fix to the 75-25 rule. While disappointed by the 60-40 compromise, it was positive to see some movement on this critical issue. This will continue to be a barrier for some small businesses in accessing the program, but we are hopeful PPP loan demand will pick up once the other PPP changes are signed into law. We ask that if there is to be additional guidance forthcoming from the SBA and Treasury, once the bill becomes law, that it be clear and speedy.”

Among other provisions, H.R. 7010 includes key changes advocated by SBE Council, including:

● Extension of the covered period to December 31, 2020

● Common sense rehire flexibility rules for loan forgiveness

● Extending the 8-week loan forgiveness window to 24 weeks

SBE Council will continue to monitor and advocate for reforms of the PPP and EIDL programs. For example, SBE Council is pushing for a rule change to allow for technology software expenses as they relate to administering payroll to be included as a forgivable expense in PPP, along with other essential expenses.

Automating Your Number and Delegating Successfully

June 26, 2019

Margo Masri of Margos Bookkeeping Services LLC presenting in Chamber Business Center Presentation Series
When running a business there needs to be a separation of powers, meaning funds should not be combined. You should keep personal and business expenses and income separate. Mixing these funds will not show you accurate numbers in terms of profit and loss and having an accurate report helps in areas such as loans, credit cards, financial growth, etc. Implementing some type of accounting software can help you organize your finances as well as help you know how your business is running so that you can stay in business. You also want to be able to delegate work so that you can make more money. You hand tasks over to experts that way you reduce what you need to do, scale, streamline the work and free up your time and stress.
