Please do not start multiple applications - it delays the process!

Section D-2 – Application Details: Self-Employed

The primary differences between applicants with employees (Section D-1) and self-employed are:

  • There are no employer forms to submit (941, 940, etc.), and
  • The SBA has specified that the applicants Schedule C is to be used under most circumstances to document “payroll”, specifically line 31 of the Schedule C.

The applicant should file their 2019 Schedule C with the application.  The amount on line 31 of Schedule C (not to exceed $100,000) is divided by 12 for the Average Monthly Payroll.  If there have been other allowable payroll expenses paid in excess of line 31, such as health benefits or retirement contributions (see discussion in Section D-1 above), they can be added to Average Monthly Payroll.  This total is then multiplied by 2.5 to determine the total PPP loan amount.  Certain loans made under EIDL can be added to the total PPP loan amount.
