Join us each Wednesday at Noon as we share updated information, resources, strategy, and ideas
for Kentucky small businesses to not just survive, but thrive.

ATTENTION KENTUCKY SMALL BUSINESSES...

HERE ARE STEPS YOU SHOULD TAKE RIGHT NOW

Talk To Your Lender

Ask about a deferral of principal payments on any outstanding loans.

Talk To Your Insurance Agent

Ask about your business interruption insurance and if this public health crisis is a qualifying event.

Talk To Your Landlord

Ask about a deferral of rent payments

Prioritize Your Debts

Look at what you have personally guaranteed. Payments on other debt may have to wait until your cash situation improves.

Immediately Eliminate Unnecessary Expenses

During this time, your business needs to run as lean as possible.

Prepare Financial Documents

You will need up to date financial statements and tax returns for SBA’s Disaster Recovery process and you should be analyzing your Cash Flow on a regular basis.
