PPP2 (Second Draw)
We are currently at a processing time of 3-4 weeks from the date of submission.
Previously for First Draw PPP, the SBA’s goal was to get funds out to the people as quickly as possible and do verification at Forgiveness. Now comes Second Draw, it is more structured and both TMC and the SBA are closely verifying everything to make sure requirements are met and that it is correctly filed before actual disbursement.
For a brief timeline: after we review your application and submit it to the SBA, generally it will take about a week-and-a-half for you to receive funds.
After SBA approves your application we will inform you of the good news, send over loan documents/ACH for you to sign and confirm; when you submit the signed documents back, you should receive the funds within the next week or so.
Thank you kindly for your continued patience, our team is working as fast and accurately as we can with this high demand for the new round. We sincerely appreciate your understanding, please continue to reach to if you have any other questions.
I am planning on using the same loan amount from my first draw loan, what do I need to do and provide?
If you plan to use the 2019 documentation you have already provided to determine your PPP Second Draw loan amount, please enter the same amount for “Average Monthly Payroll” and “Loan Amount.”
When the software asks for you to upload supporting documentation, it is okay to upload any blank document as the software will not allow you to progress to the next step unless it detects something was uploaded. The same goes for the loan amount calculator: As long as you are requesting the same loan amount, a blank Excel spreadsheet can be uploaded. You do still need to download, sign and re-upload the PDF application (Form 2483 SD).
There is not a place to upload documentation proving my 25% decrease in gross receipts. Where do I do that?
If your loan request amount is above $150,000, you need to upload documentation for gross receipts. You may upload them to any place you are able to upload documents (for example in the tax filings section). The following outlines what you may provide to demonstrate the reduction:
- Quarterly financial statements (ex: Profit and Loss statement). If the financial statements do not specifically identify the line item(s) that constitute gross receipts, the applicant must annotate which line item(s) constitute the gross receipts.
- Quarterly or monthly bank statements. Must be annotated, if it is not clear, which deposits listed on the bank statement constitute gross receipts and which do not.
- Annual IRS income tax filings of the entity (required if using an annual reference period).
See here for more information about Gross Receipts.
