What is CEBA?
The Canada Emergency Business Account will help eligible small businesses with capital to see them through the current challenges. It will provide interest-free loans of up to $60,000 (guaranteed by the government) to small businesses and not-for-profits, to help with operating costs. Repaying the balance of the loan on or before December 31, 2022 will result in loan forgiveness of 25 percent (up to $10,000).
As of December 4th 2020, the Canadian government is allowing small businesses to apply for a second $20,000 loan - on top of the initial $40,000 that was available to small businesses for those that applied for CEBA previous to December 4th.
All applicants have until March 31, 2021, to apply for $60,000 CEBA loan or the $20,000 expansion.
