7. LONG TERM LOAN
During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company entered into a loan agreement with Alterna Bank for a principal amount of $31,417 (CAD$ 40,000) under Canada Emergency Business Account Program (the “Program”).
The Program, as set out by the Government of Canada, requires that the funds from this loan shall only be used by the Company to pay non-deferrable operating expenses including, without limitation, payroll, rent, utilities, insurance, property tax and regularly scheduled debt service, and may not be used to fund any payments or expenses such as prepayment/refinancing of existing indebtedness, payments of dividends, distributions and increases in management compensation.
The existing terms of CEBA loans require that the outstanding balance (other than the amount available to be forgiven) be repaid on or before December 31, 2022, to be eligible for partial loan forgiveness. The Government of Canada has recently announced the December 31, 2022 forgiveness repayment date will be extended to December 31, 2023 for eligible CEBA loan holders in good standing.
The loan is interest free for an initial term that ends on December 31, 2023 (originally December 31, 2022). Repaying the loan balance on or before December 31, 2023 will result in loan forgiveness of up to 33% (up to CAD $20,000). Any outstanding loan after initial term carries an interest rate of 5% per annum, payable monthly during the extended term of January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2025 (previously January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2024).
In April 2021, the Company applied for additional loan with Alterna Bank under the Program and received $15,145 (CAD$20,000). The expansion loan is subject to the original terms and conditions of the Program.
The balance at September 30, 2022 was $43,773, adjusted for foreign currency exchange adjustments of $3,553.
