The Canadian government created the Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA), which provides skilled businesses with interest-free loans of up to $40,000 to cover operating costs during a period when revenues have been temporarily reduced. To qualify, organizations must prove that by 2019, they have between $20,000 and $1.5 million in total salaries. This program was recently implemented by the government to help businesses obtain the necessary financing during the COVID 19 pandemic. Under this program, the government will provide $65 billion in loans and other financial assistance at market rates.

CIBC manages the Canada Emergency Business Account Loan Program on behalf of the federal government. The eligibility criteria for the program are determined by the Canadian government. No organization involved in the management of the CEBA program is authorized to grant exemptions, including CIBC, your financial institution. Visit the Government of Canada website for more information. If the borrowed funds are not repaid on that date, the loan can be converted into a 3-year loan at a 5% interest rate.

The loan is repaid in monthly installments, with the first payment due on January 31, 2023. The full balance of the loan and all accrued interest are payable until December 31, 2025. CEBA will provide interest-free loans of up to $40,000 to small businesses and not-for-profit businesses to cover their operating costs during a period during which their revenues have been temporarily reduced until December 31, 2022. Up to $10,000 of this amount may be awarded for a credit rebate if $30,000 is repaid in full on December 31, 2022 or before December 31, 2022. Good morning! I have a practical (and light) ethical question about CEBA. I applied for it and the loan was granted through RBC which comes as a visa line of credit. I applied because I wasn`t sure how my finances would go through Covid. Fortunately, although my income was reduced, I was only able to cover my salary and expenses through what I paid from MOH. I also had a light cushion in my body to help. So I didn`t have to use CEBA money.

So if you have money in your business, it won`t seem uncommon to use CEBA to pay these “necessary expenses”? I guess my question is: Will there be an impact if you use CEBA, you are examined and you have money in your business to cover the costs for which you used it? Thoughts? That`s a big question. One of the devils in detail is that you personally garnaunte the loan. It can`t end with business. I know there have been objections to this and to the representation of interests, but I have not heard that anything has changed. – LD thank you as always for the mail. I am also curious as to whether the dividend limit extends to 31 Dec 2022/3. If you still have $10,000 in loans waiting in the hope that he will forgive, when can you feel comfortable taking a dividend? I know that this question has no answer yet, just to think about the impact it could have.
