When do you have to file for PPP Forgiveness?
Borrowers may submit a loan forgiveness application anytime 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 (source: FAQ #4 in General Loan Forgiveness FAQ's contained in the SBA/Treasury Document Loan Forgiveness FAQs released October 13, 2020).
