is your company being audited by the sba for ppp loan fraud

By Spodek Law Group | July 19, 2023

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) provided loans to small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the intention that the loans would be forgiven if the businesses maintained payroll during the crisis. However, the quick roll-out and lack of oversight led to concerns about fraud and abuse of the program.

If your business received a PPP loan and is now being audited by the Small Business Administration (SBA), here are some key things to know:

Why This Audit Matters

  • The stakes are high if fraud is uncovered. You may have to repay the loan with interest, face criminal charges, or be banned from other SBA loan programs.
  • Be proactive in responding to the SBA’s information requests and questions. Lack of cooperation will raise red flags.
  • Document everything showing you complied with PPP guidelines on use of funds and staff retention.

Finding the Right PPP Loan Fraud Attorney

  • Hire an experienced white collar criminal defense attorney. PPP fraud allegations can lead to criminal charges.
  • Find someone with specific experience handling SBA loan audits and fraud cases. This expertise is crucial.
  • Make sure they understand the complex PPP rules and have represented other clients under PPP audit.
  • Ask about their track record getting favorable settlements or avoiding criminal referrals in SBA cases.
  • Meet with the attorney in person to establish rapport and share details on your loan application.

Where to Look for a PPP Loan Fraud Lawyer

  • Search for law firms and attorneys specializing in white collar criminal defense.
  • Contact your local bar association for referrals to qualified lawyers.
  • Search online directories like Avvo, FindLaw, and Justia to read attorney profiles and reviews.
  • Ask other businesses in your network if they faced PPP audits and who they used.

What Matters Most in a PPP Fraud Attorney

  • Communication skills – They should clearly explain risks, strategy and keep you informed.
  • Audit experience – Handling SBA audits requires very specific expertise.
  • Negotiation skills – Ideal for negotiating with SBA or prosecutors for best resolution.
  • Trial experience – If charges are filed, you want an attorney comfortable going to court.
  • Responsiveness – They should be available to address urgent issues that come up.
  • Objectivity – Will put aside ego to admit mistakes and change course if your strategy isn’t working.

By hiring the right lawyer quickly, you can hope to mitigate penalties and reduce collateral damage from an SBA PPP loan audit. Just make sure to do your diligence in researching and interviewing potential attorneys before selecting representation. This is not an area to go with the cheapest option or an inexperienced lawyer. The consequences are far too serious. With the right legal guidance, even companies that made honest mistakes on their PPP application can often achieve non-criminal settlements and move forward.
