SBA Form - 3508S

SBA Form – 3508S


On October 8, 2020, the SBA in consultation with the U.S. Treasury, released a “simpler” loan forgiveness application for PPP loans of $50,000 or less.  The new application also makes borrowers for PPP loans under $50,000 exempt from: (1) any reduction in forgiveness based on FTE employee reductions; and (2) any reduction in forgiveness for any salary or wage reduction. 


Borrowers must still complete a one-page application which includes certifications on the use of the funds.
