Here’s how it works:

  1. Independent contractors are eligible for PPP loans of up to 2.5 times of their average monthly pay during the year preceding the application. Note, Kabbage can only process loans of up to $2 million.

  2. All payments (principal, interest and fees) are deferred for 6 months; however, interest will continue to accrue over this period.

  3. Any amount that is not forgiven will be treated as a two-year loan with a 1% fixed interest rate.

  4. If line 31 on Form 1040 Schedule C is less than $2,400, you won't meet Kabbage's minimum loan size requirement of $500.

What to prepare before you apply for a PPP loan

As an earner who uses Uber, you’ll need to submit these documents to verify your information:
  • 2019 1040 Schedule C
  • Uber-generated 2019 yearly tax summary from your Uber profile page (the version recently updated to include a code on the upper-left corner)
  • 2020 invoice, bank statement or book of record to establish you were operating on 2/15/20
  • Color copy of government-issued ID
  • Your most recent loan statement if you have an Economic Injury Disaster Loan
Things to note:
  • For the fastest review, please submit your files as PDFs.
  • We can’t accept Form 1040 Schedule C from previous years, so be sure to submit a completed version of the 2019 form (even if you haven't filed it).
  • Submitting 1099s does not suffice; we still need to review Form 1040 Schedule C.

  • Is my business eligible? Sole proprietors, independent contractors and self-employed individuals who regularly carry on any trade or business, including those in the “gig economy" are eligible if your business was operational as of February 15, 2020. Click here to see if your business is not eligible because of SBA requirements and/or Kabbage restrictions.
  • I haven’t filled out a 2019 Form 1040 Schedule C. Do I still need to submit it? Yes. We understand taxes are not due yet, but we need a prepared version of the document to verify your net earnings. Download the form, fill it out and submit it.
  • If I only use Form MISC-1099, do I still need to submit a 2019 Form 1040 Schedule C? Yes. Even if you use Form MISC-1099 to report earnings, you still need to download the 2019 Form 1040 Schedule C, fill it out and submit it as part of your PPP application.
