COVID-19 Resources for Businesses

First Bank Richmond understands the critical role small businesses play in the vitality of our communities and our economy. To help you through this uncertain time, we’ve assembled some resources to support you and your business.

First Bank is excited to report that we have helped 460 small business customers in our communities through the Paycheck Protection Program.  The nearly $65 million dollars that was loaned to these small businesses will help alleviate the effects of this pandemic. This is just another example of First Bank and its customers “Doing great things together”.

PPP Forgiveness

The Small Business Administration has released a three-page “EZ” Paycheck Protection Program loan forgiveness application requiring less documentation and fewer calculations than previously required from Form 3508. The streamlined forgiveness form is expected to smooth the forgiveness application process for a substantial portion of PPP borrowers. SBA also updated the regular Form 3508 to reflect recent changes made by Congress in the PPP Flexibility Act and issued a new interim final rule that implements changes made by the PPPFA. Form 3508EZ applies to borrowers who meet any one of these three criteria:

  • Applied for the PPP loan as self-employed, an independent contractor or a sole proprietor with no employees.
  • Did not reduce salary or wages for any employee by more than 25%, and did not reduce the number or hours of their employees (excepting laid-off employees who refused an offer to return).
  • Did not reduce salary or wages for any employee by more than 25% during the covered period and experienced reductions in business activity as a result of health directives related to COVID-19.

We will begin to accept the applications for forgiveness beginning Monday, June 22nd.  However, please be advised we have not received final instructions as to how these are to be submitted to the SBA.  If you send your applications to us, we will hold them and process them once they are able to be accepted. 

For clarification purposes, the SBA loan number and the First Bank Richmond loan number are exactly the same and can be located near the top of the paperwork that you signed. 

If you have questions pertaining to filling out the application forms, we are referring you to your CPA for guidance.
