We accept appeals by email at ohafilings@sba.gov (link sends e-mail), via the Hearings and Appeals Submission Upload (HASU) Application, and also by fax at (202) 205-7059.  Appeals sent to other email addresses and other fax numbers are not formal filings.

Please note that submitting an appeal using HASU is not required, and HASU is only used to transmit the appeal to OHA.  The submitter is responsible for serving a copy of the appeal to all appropriate parties.  If you submitted your appeal using another method (email, fax, mail), you DO NOT need to also submit the appeal through HASU.  HASU Submissions must be in PDF format and cannot be larger than 1GB

Once you click on “Upload Appeal” you will be directed to the Accellion File Transfer (AFT) upload website. You will be required to create an account, which will be valid for 30 days.  Once you register the account, you will receive a registration confirmation message, which will provide a link to AFT’s document upload page.  Please ensure that that the “To” field is auto-filled with OHAfilings@sba.gov.  Once documents are submitted, HASU will provide you with a timestamp showing when the appeal was submitted.  Please call OHA at (202) 401-8200 to confirm that we received your filing.
