SBA rolled out a third forgiveness form, one that will all but assure full forgiveness for small businesses that borrowed up to $50,000 under the Payroll Protection Program.
Form 3508S will not penalize a borrower for reductions in payroll or reductions in employee headcount. Rather, the only question is whether the borrower spent the money on permissible expenses over the 24-week covered period. Borrowers still must submit documentation to prove the payment of forgiveness-eligible expenses. Detailed instructions are found here.
Overall, this application will be used for 3.57 borrower applications, and it will certainly assist lenders in processing these applications.
