Business owners, The SBA has a new SIMPLIFIED PPP Loan Forgiveness application!

On October 8, 2020, the SBA, in consultation with the Treasury Department released a simplified loan forgiveness application for PPP loans of $50,000 or less. The new Form 3508S is intended to streamline the PPP forgiveness process and provide financial and administrative relief to small businesses. It requires just one page of information, fewer calculations, and less documentation than the original 3508 and 3508EZ.
 
We are currently assessing the new form and will send an e-mail when it is available. If you have already submitted a forgiveness application there is nothing further you need to do.
 
Also, we have received questions regarding the deadline to file the forgiveness application. The SBA has released the following explanation:

Borrowers may submit a loan forgiveness application any time before the maturity date of the loan, which is either two or five years from loan origination. However, if a borrower does not apply for loan forgiveness within 10 months after the last day of the borrower’s loan forgiveness covered period, loan payments are no longer deferred, and the borrower must begin making payments on the loan. For example, a borrower whose covered period ends on October 30, 2020, has until August 30, 2021, to apply for forgiveness before loan repayment begins.


(August 5) 

The SBA announced that its PPP Forgiveness Platform will open and begin accepting lender submissions on August 10. This date is subject to extension if any new legislative amendment to the forgiveness process necessitates changes to the system. Lenders are still waiting for final instructions on submitting forgiveness to the SBA, which may be delayed due to legislative amendments. 

Marine Bank is NOT accepting forgiveness applications until we receive and evaluate the submission instructions from the SBA; this may be after August 10. We are working diligently to prepare our forgiveness process, so it is efficient and straightforward for you.  

When we begin accepting forgiveness applications, you will receive an email from us with a link to your Loan Forgiveness Application.

For more information on the loan forgiveness process, click here:  See SBA FAQs » 

NOTICE!

As of noon (12:00 pm CST), Friday, August 7th, Marine Bank is no longer accepting applications for the Paycheck Protection Program. Receipt of an application by noon on August 7 does not guarantee that a PPP loan will be processed by us and approved by the SBA by the August 8 deadline.
