SBA Paycheck Protection Program - 2021

We're in this together.

And we stand ready to help.

January 19th Update

On January 19, 2021, the SBA announced a new requirement relating to the documentation borrowers must provide to demonstrate at least a 25% reduction in revenue.

Applicants with loan amounts greater than $150,000 will be required to sign and date—thereby attesting the accuracy of the information provided within—the first page of financial statements and initial all other pages of the documents provided to the SBA to validate their having at least a 25% reduction in revenues.

Below is a link supplied by the SBA that provides instructions on how to calculate revenue reduction and maximum loan amounts along with how to document your request.

Things to Keep in Mind

  • There will be no immediate or real-time loan decisions. For this round, the SBA may take up to two days to provide a loan decision.
  • At the direction of the SBA, borrowers must meet certain eligibility requirements, certify their necessity for PPP funding and provide documentation in support of the assertion that they have experienced at least a 25% reduction in revenue.
    • For loans greater than $150,000, this documentation must be signed and dated in accordance with the requirement released on January 19, 2021 and provided with the loan application.
    • For loans less than or equal to $150,000, this documentation will need to be provided during the forgiveness application process.
