ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

PPP Forgiveness
The Treasury and SBA have created resources for borrowers and the following information should be of help to you as you plan what expenses to pay with the PPP Loan proceeds and any other actions you need to take to maximize your loan forgiveness. 
 
While Compeer is not yet accepting forgiveness applications, we ask that you review the SBA guidance as you prepare.
 
It is our desire to maximize the forgiveness of your loan. Please carefully read the following documents and guidance:

  • SBA Application for Forgiveness (SBA 3508)
    • We anticipate providing clients with a digital version of this application, however, this version provides a framework to use as you plan for the application process.
    • Clients who received the PPP loan through Compeer will receive an email in the future with a link to use to complete a digital version of the SBA Application for Forgiveness (SBA 3508 Form).   
    • Review the bottom of page 2 for a Summary of Costs Eligible for Forgiveness.
    • Depending on the complexity of your business, the SBA Application for Forgiveness (SBA 3508) may require very detailed records to process your application, specifically pages 7-9 of the application.
    • It is especially important you carefully review page 10, as it describes the documentation that will be required to forgive the loan.
  • Interim Final Rule on Loan Forgiveness
  • Interim Final Rule on SBA Loan Review Procedures and Related Borrower and Lender Responsibilities 

This guidance from SBA is applicable to general businesses, but some of the specific guidance on documentation may not apply to farming or agricultural businesses. There may be certain situations where we may need to obtain guidance from SBA which may delay the processing of forgiveness applications.

Compeer Financial is committed to helping you access the nearly $350 billion in Paycheck Protection Program loans authorized by Congress under the CARES Act and administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA) and Treasury. However, unlike most loans extended by Compeer Financial, the terms of this loan program are set by the SBA and Treasury. As a result, while any information which we may provide about this program (whether provided in writing or orally), including this calculator, is based on information which Compeer Financial believes to be reliable, we are providing this information without representation or warranty. All loan approvals are subject to other requirements, including the specific requirements of the Small Business Administration at the time of loan origination, which may be in addition to or different from the information which we provide and which may change. All loans are also subject to availability of funds under the SBA program. Funds are limited. Compeer Financial anticipates a high volume of requests. There may be processing delays and system failures or other issues that interfere with Compeer Financial taking your application or submission of any application to SBA. Compeer Financial does not guarantee that it will take your application or submit any applications taken before SBA funding is no longer available or at all. By using Compeer Financial to seek a Paycheck Protection Program loan, you agree that Compeer Financial is not responsible or liable to you (i) if your application is not taken by Compeer Financial or any application is not submitted to the SBA until after SBA stops approving applications, for any reason or (ii) if your inquiry or any application is not processed. You also forever release and waive any claims against Compeer Financial concerning failure to obtain a loan. This release and waiver applies to but is not limited to any claims concerning Compeer Financial’s (i) speed, manner or systems for processing or prioritizing application or (ii)  representations by Compeer Financials regarding the application process, the Paycheck Protection Program, or availability of funding. Compeer Financial does not provide tax, legal, or financial advice in connection with this program and encourages you to consult your independent advisors.

NOTICE: The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract), because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program, or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act.
