    FD Announces Federal CARES Act Monitoring and Debt Forgiveness Verification Program

    Nationally ranked CPA firm to support SBA lender and small business efforts to navigate the requirements under the newly enacted Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or “CARES Act,” and specifically the Paycheck Protection Program.


    The FD CARES Act Program is led by FD Principal Bradley Carroll, a former bank Chief Audit Executive. Carroll and his team bring decades of bank audit experience to this initiative.

    The CARES Act tasks SBA lenders with administering the Paycheck Protection Program, which contains specific requirements regarding how a business can deploy the proceeds from the loans under the PPP and how that business may ultimately qualify for debt forgiveness under the program.

    “The recently enacted CARES Act promises much-needed relief to businesses that qualify,” said Carroll. “We understand that in the face of large anticipated demand for the PPP loans, both lenders and their business applicants will be significantly challenged with the verification process that can lead ultimately to debt forgiveness under the program. The FD CARES Act Program is designed to provide third-party attest services for debt relief.”

    The FD CARES Act Program will also include assistance for businesses seeking to take advantage of the various payroll and other tax provisions that can provide much-needed cash relief.
