The Small Business Administration (SBA) has released several updates restaurant owners should be aware of as they prepare to apply for loan forgiveness.

SBA released a PPP EZ loan forgiveness application. A business is eligible to fill out the EZ Forgiveness Application if they meet one of the following criteria.
    • You are self-employed and have no employees;
    • You did not reduce the salaries or wages of your employees by more than 25% and did not reduce the number of hours for your employees; or
    • You experienced reduction in business activity as a result of health directives related to COVID-19 and did not reduce the salaries or wages of your employees by more than 25%.
If a business does not meet one of the above requirements, a regular Loan Forgiveness Application will need to be completed. PPP Forgiveness Application (English Version/En Espanol)


All PPP forms should be submitted to a PPP lender. Businesses need to check with their lending institution for additional submission instructions.

Additional document's needed may include:

  • Payroll records
  • Receipts and agreements for approved non-payroll costs (mortgage interest, rent, utilities)
  • Other documents deemed necessary by the SBA
