Users that unable to download the electronic reporting software may request a physical copy on CD-ROM by mailing the SBA Office of Investment at firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line must read “Request for SBIC Reporting Software” and the email must include the user’s complete mailing address and the type of software requested.
A complete report must contain the data files and two printed sets of the schedules generated through the electronic reporting software, the supplementary Excel spreadsheets, two copies of the Operating Plan Update narrative, the Independent Auditor's Report, and the Notes to Financial Statements.
The SBA may impose a late filing penalty of $100 per day for every day the report is late (under Section 315(a) of the Small Business Investment Act of 1958).
