How and When to Apply for Loan Forgiveness

A borrower can apply for forgiveness once all loan proceeds for which the borrower is requesting forgiveness have been used. Borrowers can apply for forgiveness any time up to the maturity date of the loan. If borrowers do not apply for forgiveness within 10 months after the last day of the covered period, then PPP loan payments are no longer deferred, and borrowers will begin making loan payments to the bank.

To apply for loan forgiveness:

  1. If you are ready, FAB&T is ready to take your PPP forgiveness application:

Our site will walk you through questions that will complete either the SBA Form 3508, SBA Form 3508EZ, SBA Form 3508S, whichever fits your situation.  If you need to stop or get interrupted during the online application process, please make sure you save your information so you can pick up where you left off.

  1. Compile your documentation:
  • Payroll (provide documentation for all payroll periods that overlapped with the Covered Period):
    • Bank account statements or third-party payroll service provider reports documenting the amount of cash compensation paid to employees
    • Tax forms (or equivalent third-party payroll service provider reports) for the periods that overlap with the Covered Period:
      • Payroll tax filings reported, or that will be reported, to the IRS (typically, Form 941); and
      • State quarterly business and individual employee wage reporting and unemployment insurance tax filings reported, or that will be reported, to the relevant state
    • Payment receipts, cancelled checks, or account statements documenting the amount of any employer contributions to employee health insurance and retirement plans that the borrower included in the forgiveness amount
    • Do NOT include the following when calculating eligible payroll costs for loan forgiveness:

  • Non-payroll (for expenses that were incurred or paid during the Covered Period and showing that obligations or services existed prior to February 15, 2020 for the first three listed obligations/services):
    • Business mortgage interest payments: Copy of lender amortization schedule and receipts verifying payments, or lender account statements

    • Covered supplier costs:  Copy of contracts, orders or purchase orders in effect at any time before the Covered Period (except for perishable goods), and copy of invoices, orders or purchase orders paid, and receipts, cancelled checks or account statements verifying eligible payments
    • Covered worker protection expenditures:  Copy of invoices, orders or purchase orders paid, and receipts, cancelled checks or account statements verifying eligible payments, and verification that expenditures were used to comply with COVID-19 guidance

This list of documents required to be submitted is not all-inclusive.

  1. Submit the forgiveness request and documentation for your PPP:

Complete your loan forgiveness application on-line and submit it to your lender with the re­quired supporting documents. Watch your email in case additional documentation as requested. If additional documentation is requested, please provide it in a timely manner.  After the bank review a final forgiveness application will be available for you to sign through DocuSign.  Once signed the application and supporting documents are sent by the bank to the SBA for approval.

  1. Continue to communicate with your lender throughout the process:

If SBA undertakes a review of your loan, the bank will notify you of the review and the SBA loan review decision. You have the right to appeal certain SBA loan review decisions. If the loan is not approved in full for forgiveness the bank will notify you of the forgiveness amount paid by SBA and the date on which your first payment will be due.
