A narrow class of PPP borrowers got some good news on Thursday, October 8. The SBA released a streamlined application — Form 3508S designed specifically for those the borrowed under $50,000.
  • The new form requires fewer calculations and less documentation.
  • Borrowers using Form 3508S are exempt from reductions in loan forgiveness stemming from reductions in full-time equivalent employees or from reductions in salaries or wages.
  • CDS can help you navigate PPP loan forgiveness.

The new guidance, found in question No. 52 in the SBA’s frequently asked questions document for the PPP, clarifies that the deferral period extension automatically applies to all loans–10 months after the end of the borrower’s loan forgiveness period. Previously, the deferral period could end after 6 months.
