Over one million microbusinesses that received emergency funding of $25,000 or less in 2020 have been denied full forgiveness and must repay all or a portion of their loans.

Beware, New Merchant Cash Advances

Companies like Doordash and Mindbody have added merchant cash advances (MCAs) to their platforms.

Warn your clients to be careful when accepting MCAs, because while they might sound like easy money and a good deal they don’t always pencil out. Something else to be careful about are “Buy Now, Pay Later” products. Read more information in our blog post “Doordash and Mindbody Enter MCA Arena.”
