Increasing rates
            Is there provision in the Fire All in One that permits us to increase our rates?
            All of the Standard Form Agreements have a provision which permits up to a 9% increase each year.  If you don’t have the Standard Form Agreement then check to see if your contract permits the customer to cancel, or requires notice or permits you to retract the increase.  If so, ask your lawyer to look for a copy of an updated Standard Form Agreement and copy the copyrighted right terminology.  Or, you can buy an updated contract at  
PPP funding may still be available
            If you didn’t get PPP funding you may still have time.  Contact K&K immediately.  Call Steve Sheinwald,Esq at 516 747 6700 x 309.  No matter what other advice you have gotten, call Steve now.
            Every one of our clients who signed up for our PPP program [] got funded and I am confident every one of them will have their loan forgiven, unless they don’t want to.  If you have less than 500 employees you qualify.  How much can you get?  Figure your average monthly payroll for 2019 and times it by 2.5.  Don’t include any salary above $100,000.  
            As I write this we are waiting for the PPP program to be extended.  It will likely be the law by the time this article is circulated.  Sign up for the PPP Program today.  
            You can only get one PPP loan, so if you got it already, that’s it.
