Please log into the direct forgiveness portal to view and download your payment confirmation document. That document is very important that you download it and keep it in your records. That’s the official proof that your PPP loan was forgiven by the SBA. So that document you need to log back into the portal and get it. How do you do that? Well, you go to the portal homepage and you will log in using your username and password for the SBA forgiveness portal. Once you’re logged in, you’re going to see your business name, your SBA number and see here where it says “Status”. It says “SBA review fully approved” when it says fully approved. That means that your PPP has completely been forgiven, and the process is over for your PPP forgiveness. Now once you get to this page, you click “View”. And once you click View, you go to basically this is the Portal homepage. And as you can see, on the top left, it says “fully approved”. Once you get to this page, you’re going to click here where it says “Documentation”. Once you click documentation, there’s an area that says uploaded documents and see where it says payment confirmation. And here you’re going to click the view. Once you click View is going to download this document this is the most important document that you need to keep for your PPP forgiveness. This is the official document from the SBA, basically letting you know that your PPP has been forgiven and that the SBA has already paid your lender.
Here in this letter is going to have your name your lender, the SBA loan number, the amount of PPP that you received, and where it says the amount of PPP that was forgiven. Now, if this number is lower than the amount that you got, that means that you did not get 100% forgiveness, and now whatever balance you have with your lender, you have to pay that back as a loan to the lender, okay, but for most cases, you should get 100% forgiveness.
Now, this letter you keep in your records, so you have proof that the SBA already paid your lender. Now, this document also tells us very important information. Here it says that “For PPP loans that are under 150,000”, that you need to keep your records for anything that you use the PPP loan for and your PPP loan records for a period of four years, because after your PPP is forgiven, the SBA still has four years to audit your business and make sure that you received the correct PPP loan amount and that you use it correctly. So, you need to keep your records for four years because SBA has the ability to audit your case. Okay, now for loans that are greater than 150,000, these businesses need to keep their PPP records for six years because SBA can audit your case six years after you get your loan forgiven. Okay, so this documentation now you know how to get it.
Please download it and keep it in your records in a safe place. All right. Now, another document that is very good for you to download is the official PPP loan forgiveness application. Where do you get that you go back here to the Portal homepage? And now you’re going to click the summary. When you click the summary, you’re going to see this window that says the SBA review is complete. And it says “View – Signed – Request”, you click there and that takes you to your official PPP loan forgiveness application that the SBA used for your PPP forgiveness, this is another important document that you need to keep on your records. Okay, so now you know how to get it. So, if you already receive PPP forgiveness, log back in through the portal, get this document which we showed you how to get, and download the forgiveness application as well as the official one okay.
