THE CARES ACT AND THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

10 a.m. (PST)

The most extensive federal government response to the COVID-19 crisis, the CARES Act, was set forth to provide economic assistance for Americans and small businesses, and to preserve jobs for our industries. Although the funds in these programs are tapped, such programs are expected to be replenished as part of additional legislation. Among the many components of the plan, entertainment and media companies can especially benefit from programs under the Small Business Administration and Paycheck Protection Program to survive the negative economic impact of this unprecedented crisis. During this webinar, the panelists will discuss the unique characteristics of the entertainment and media industry that affect the application process for a CARES loan.  Topics to be discussed include:

-What aspects of the industry qualify for the loan

-Determining the qualifying entity for subsidiaries

-How to calculate the loan amount

-Pointers to best structure the loan application

-Certification obligations and requirements
