Top 50 Frequently Asked Questions for Paycheck Protection Program

We are here to help.

When you’re facing challenges, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Here are some ideas for strengthening your organization, identifying cost savings and finding new sources of revenue.  Explore these services and contact us to find out how we can help you come through the storm and emerge stronger than ever.

Our COVID-19 Resilience & Recovery services include:



  • Process and workforce optimization --- If you’re facing difficult choices, how can you reduce your workforce without cutting off your future? Our risk advisory professionals can help you reduce expenses without creating security and legal exposures.



  • Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Services --- Governance, social issues and environmental policies affect more than compliance. They can affect your ability to operate in other countries, your workforce risks, and both financial and reputational costs.


  • Preparing for supply chain disruption --- Along with managing debt and monitoring cash flow, manufacturers need to prepare for breakdowns in both domestic and international supply chains. Weaver can help you identify critical risks and prepare back-up plans so you can keep production moving.


  • Planning for business continuity --- Going far beyond disaster preparedness, business continuity planning looks at issues of infrastructure, workforce, technology, supply chains, information systems and more so that organizations can keep serving customers through natural disasters or economic crises.
  • Tax recovery --- If you pay sales and use taxes or excise taxes, you may have overpayments that could be recovered – often with no upfront cost to your company. Energy companies could also be due severance rebates that Weaver could help you recover.


  • Royalty or franchise fee audits --- Franchisees or vendors who license logos or intellectual property may not be paying everything you are due. A royalty audit can help you identify and recover underpayments.


  • Tapping disaster relief funds --- A national or state declaration of a disaster or emergency provides opportunities for organizations – even private businesses – to apply for disaster relief funds. Such funds can provide funding to rebuild or to keep your company solvent through a long shutdown.


  • Tax relief --- Legislation sometimes moves quickly to address a sudden crisis, and there may be new opportunities for tax savings or credits you could take advantage of. Our tax professionals can help identify new savings to help offset unexpected losses.
