Valentine’s Day Spending Trends

Consumer behavior is an important economic driving force. Although holidays are never about gift-giving or spending money, these cultural norms are still major factors for the economy. V Day is a staple day for retail industries like floral, candy, and jewelry.

Entrepreneurship Increasing During the Pandemic

While the economic effects of coronavirus have led to business closures, job losses, and a drop in GDP, some are taking this as an opportunity to pursue passions and take risks. That’s right, entrepreneurship is on the rise. Americans are starting businesses at the fastest rate in more than a decade. As of September 2020, applications for EIN numbers had surpassed 3.2 million for the year1, with over 500,000 of said applications occurring from mid-Mach to the end of May alone2. This number is, unironically, up 500,000 compared to the year prior1.

PPP loans have provided a much-needed lifeline to many small businesses, non-profits, and sole proprietors during the Coronavirus pandemic, however the rushed creation of this program is starting to show its negative side effects. Just this week, we’ve seen two new arrests in relation to PPP fraud.

Why you might not be eligible for PPP loan forgiveness

The coverage of the Paycheck Protection Program and PPP forgiveness has been so vast that many of the additional loans, grants, and other aid given since Coronavirus shutdowns began in March have been brushed to the side. With such a focus on the forgiveness of PPP loans, many loan recipients who received additional government aid may be in for a shock when they determine their forgiveness amount.

Should You Wait to Apply for PPP Forgiveness?

The Paycheck Protection Program is top of mind for many small businesses, CPAs, and lenders. Understandably, many loan recipients are chomping at the bit to begin the forgiveness process and have some certainty regarding their payback amount. While the eagerness to get the PPP forgiveness process started is not unfounded, experts are advising against getting in a rush to apply. There are many reasons waiting might be the best option.

Refining Your Bank’s Loan Review and Special Assets Processes for the Coming Economic Storm

Experts have been predicting a coming recession long before Coronavirus was on the world’s radar, but nobody was quite expecting the global health pandemic that is currently wreaking havoc on America’s economy. Current economic trends are being compared to those of The Great Recession of 2008. While there are some discrepancies between the two, this still leaves bankers with a little bit of an advantage in knowing what’s suspected to come— many loans are going to become criticized.

Lessons Learned From a Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has radically changed nearly every facet of American day-to-day life to where most citizens do not see our daily routines ever returning to what we once considered “normal.” When we say every facet, we mean every facet. Mental, physical, familial, financial, personal, and professional. A lot of the effects we’ve felt from the pandemic have been less than savory, but this pandemic is also changing some things for the better. Below are just a few life lessons many Americans have learned from this pandemic (so far) regarding banking and finances.

The Push Against Cashless Stores

Prior the coronavirus outbreak, there was a growing rate of stores and businesses no longer accepting cash. While this may seem like a natural progression as technology and digital banking grow, this cashless model was actually met with a lot of backlash. Just six months ago in January 2020 (which may feel like years to many of us), New York passed a bill banning businesses from rejecting cash payments nearly unanimously.

Why Aren't We Seeing More Bankruptcies?

Many of these companies filing for bankruptcy have been, unsurprisingly, airline and travel companies, and now we are seeing more and more big names like J. Crew and J.C. Penney added the list. “In May alone, some 27 companies reporting at least $50 million in liabilities sought court protection from creditors -- the highest number since the Great Recession,” reports Bloomberg.

Working From Home is Here to Stay

Many organizations have feared a work-from-home model for years, worrying about the risks that come with more distractions, less accountability, and less productivity for employees, but the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many organizations to adopt work-from-home procedures despite their apprehension. However, many have found their fears put at ease—this actually works. Not only do employees have more free time, lending way to better quality of life, and get to work in sweatpants, but they’re doing it with just as much, if not more, productivity. Many predict that working from home is here to stay.

The U.S. Consumer Confidence Index has dropped by 30 percent since February, from 101 down to 71.8—the lowest it’s been since December 2011.

How Do We Know When It’s Safe for Businesses to Reopen?

There are two legitimate concerns when thinking about reopening the country: the physical health and well-being of citizens and the economic health and well-being of citizens. President Trump’s initial hope to see the country reopened by Easter was met with a lot of backlash from healthcare professionals and economists that said it was too soon and would wind up doing more harm than good. While obviously that date has come and gone with no uplifting of shelter-in-place and other social distancing orders, the push to reopen sooner than later is not unfounded. Yesterday, the president announced the ‘Opening Up America Again’ plan aiming for May 1st.
