What will happen after Armanino completes its review? How do I finish my application?
Posted by Armanino Financial Advisory Team
Armanino is providing an initial review of all forgiveness applications and comparing the supporting documentation with the data entered in the calculation model. This review is intended to validate the data and calculations, and takes place prior to you officially completing the final SBA Forgiveness Application and Schedule A (meaning, all data in the application is accurate and you have made all required certifications and signed the application).
Once the review is complete you will receive an email advising you the review has been completed. Attached to this email will be a PDF document that is a replica of Schedule A in the official application. You will be given instructions to complete your final application using the Schedule A data and to certify and sign the application in the appropriate places.
Upon receipt of you final, certified and signed application, the bank will conduct a final review and notify you of its forgiveness decision and recommendation to the SBA. The bank has up to 60 days to complete this step, and the SBA has an additional 90 days to review the bank’s decision, and assuming concurrence, reimburse the bank for the final forgiveness amount to be applied against the principal of your loan.
