SBA Approves 1 Page Forgiveness Application For PPP Loans Under $50K

The federal government’s PPP loan was designed to allow contractors, self-employed individuals, and small businesses under 501 employees to get emergency funding to keep people on payroll.

The SBA has now approved a simple 1 page form for forgiveness on PPP loans under $50,000. Instructions can be found here.

The borrower must affirm that the funds were used for eligible purposes, that at least 60% of the loan went to payroll, and that owner compensation for a 24 week loan was no more than $20,833.

You will need to provide some documentation showing that the money was properly used, but you won’t need to provide documentation of eligibility or forgiveness calculations. You do need to maintain your own records for 6 years from the date that the loan is forgiven, in case of an audit.

Dan, I love your site but I would refrain from posting things like this. You know there are certain people who will succumb to their yetzer hara and we don’t need yidden in the news for fraud.

sorry if the answer is obvious, i have not looked into the process yet, but why would one opt to do an 8 week period over a 24 week period? I only see the benefit of 2.5 months salary vs 8 weeks salary but i don’t see a drawback to the 24 week period, what am i missing? thanks.

Adam

Same. Can someone help me understand.

Kenny

It is encouraging fraud by posting something like this on a “deal” site with the implication that this is some sort of “deal” for people to take advantage of. You may not mean for it to be taken like that, but there is no doubting some will and it might be better to not play a role in that.

You can’t take out loans anymore. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Also lenders were checking that you had a legit biz before they dispersed the loans. Many people that frequent this site own and operate legit businesses that needed the PPP loan.

one more question, if I got the 1k EIDL advance, do I deduct that from the forgiveness amount? Or can I still ask for forgiveness on the entire loan amount (it all went towards payroll)?

Jim

The 1k will be auto deducted by the sba from the ppp forgiveness

E

So if loan received was 65k non of it is forgivable?

Brunfin

a 65k PPP loan can still be potentially completely forgivable (minus the EIDL). It’s just that for the PPP loans that were for under $50,000 the process to have it forgiven is much simpler.

E

So this is for the PPP loan only , not the eidl sba loans under 50k, correct?

Brunfin

I’m not sure if people realize, that as of now (who knows what will be if there’s another stimulus) you cannot get this loan any more. Dan posted for people who have taken the loan already, before it expired.

michael scott

Yup. They have no idea what they are talking about.

Kevin

Just say thank you

Ok so forgive my lack of memory but while husband was hospitalized with covid (BH BH good now) with some help from his accountant I got this (small) loan secured for him for his small business which he is sole proprieotr/ DBA. He is the only employee. Loan was under 20k. Which means the money went to keep him afloat pay Bill’s rent his salary.
I assumed 25% was forgiven rest was a loan. Would this be simple or complicated for us, meaning it wasnt quite payroll it was more “ahem” transferring funds to his wife’s account so she could live and pay bills…

L

any answers? OP here thanks

Sholom Kaufman

Applied for forgiveness with form 3508z. I sincerely hope this wasn’t to my detriment in light of this new 3508s. Any thoughts anyone?

JsJ
