The SBA recently released additional simplified guidance and forms for loan forgiveness for Paycheck Protection Program loans of $50,000 or less except for those borrowers that together with their affiliates received loans totaling $2 million or greater.
SBA Form 3508S requires fewer calculations and less documentation for eligible borrowers. Borrowers that use SBA Form 3508S are exempt from reductions in loan forgiveness amounts based on reductions in full-time equivalent (FTE) employees or in salaries or wages. SBA Form 3508S also does not require borrowers to show the calculations used to determine their loan forgiveness amount. However, SBA may request information and documents to review those calculations as part of its loan review process.
