- Ensuring that the borrower has followed the SBA’s rules for forgiveness including the rules for safe harbor
- Reviewing the calculations made by the borrower regarding eligible expenses, full- time equivalent employees, and salary/hourly wage reductions
- Independently calculating the computed values that are part of the forgiveness application and comparing it to the borrowers
- Independently calculating the forgiveness amount
- Preparing and delivering an Agreed-Upon Procedures report, showing any discrepancies and errors with the borrower’s application, including the forgiveness amount
Why Hire KROST to Review Forgiveness Applications?

These same subject matter experts will provide the Forgiveness Application Review Service.
KROST has also developed a PPP Budgeting, Tracking and Optimization Tool, used by more than 250 institutions, that tracks these expenses on an ongoing basis, automatically calculates the forgivable amounts, and computes all the fields necessary for a forgiveness application
