Meeting a lender’s minimum qualifications and requirements will make you a stronger applicant. Some lenders may offer some flexibility if you’re underperforming in one area but overperforming in another, but your best chance of getting approved is meeting or exceeding all of their minimums.
• Your business needs to meet the SBA’s size requirements. In order to qualify as a small business, your firm needs to meet the government’s definition of a small business for your industry. Some industry size requirements are based on average annual receipts; other industries are judged based on the number of employees, which generally can’t exceed 500 workers — although there are exceptions. The SBA maintains an exhaustive list of size requirements broken down by industry.
The most you can borrow through the SBA CAPLines program is $5 million. The exception to the is the Small Short-Term Line of Credit which has significantly lower servicing requirements but also has a credit limit of $200k.
I took a sba loan after hurricane katrina unfortunately it has defaulted. My loan has been turned over to the treasury department. My problem is when I try to find out how much I owe they are giving me a complete goose chase. My tax return has been offset for several years, how do I go about finding out how much is remaining. Also how can I get them to stop offsetting my tax returns?
Because you have strong personal credit, you could qualify for a line of credit through BlueVine or OnDeck that would help you meet daily expenses and maintain inventory. If you’ve been in business at least a year and have at least $100,000 in annual revenue, consider OnDeck, whose maximum APR is lower than BlueVine’s. If your annual revenue starts at $60,000, BlueVine is a better bet. BlueVine also offers invoice factoring, a type of financing that advances you cash based on your unpaid customer invoices.
Generally, you’ll get solid loan terms from these lenders, making it possible for you to grow your business and establish better credit. That can help you qualify for other types of financing down the road.
In fact, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) now uses the score to pre-screen it’s most popular 7(a) loans. If your score falls below their minimum threshold, you may not qualify for one of the most attractive—lowest interest rates—small business loans available. Starting at the beginning of 2014, all SBA 7(a) loan applications up to $350,000 are required to go through a business credit score pre-screen. To be clear, if you’re applying for an SBA loan, most likely it’s a 7(a).
Now that you have a general overview of the six primary kinds of SBA loans, and the frequency of funding for each, it’s important to understand the difference between SBA loans and traditional bank loans.
My mother received a disaster loan in North Carolina back in 1999 after hurricane Floyd. She paid up until her husband passed and she could no longer afford to continue paying the loan. They have taken her taxes and they have also garnished he SS check but that has been about 2 or 3 years ago and we have not heard anything from them since. We have tried calling to find out the balance or if she even owes a balance since they have not contacted her but we get the run around and no one can seem to give her an answer. Does this mean the loan is a charge off? Or are they planning on coming back to collect more money from her without notification. The land in which the loan was taken out on is just sitting there and she is paying taxes on it but if they are going to take the land she want to stop paying taxes on it because she is only receiving SS benefits. Please we are desperate and do not know what to do.
Lenders provide the funds that make up an SBA loan, but the agency guarantees a portion of the amount, up to a $3.75 million guarantee. That means if you default on the loan, the SBA pays out the guaranteed amount. This guarantee lets lenders offer longer terms for repayment than they otherwise could, which means your monthly payments will be lower.
Trade finance under the SBA Export loan program is broken up into three types of loans, but they all have the same goal. The aim is to expand international trade and export activities. Here is what each loan within the SBA Export program can be used for:
My mother is 81 years old, widow and living from her social security $700 a month. In 2010, I did a quick claim deed to have the property only on my name, but the SBA loan was originated in 2005. Actually I am working a modification with my bank and they told me there are some issues with the property title and the SBA loan with her name. I am waiting for the bank response, but I would like to know if the settlement could be an option for her.
Other common fees: You may also see other loan fees such as documentation fees, monthly or weekly fees and invoice factoring fees. Some of the fees, such as monthly, weekly, invoice factoring, fixed loan or line fees, can be thought as similar to the interest rate on the loan. Other fees may be the same as one of the fees listed above, just under a different name. The best way to understand each fee associated with a loan is to thoroughly read the loan offer and contract.
The partner institutions set their own interest rates according to the creditworthiness of the borrower and the specifics of the startup or small business. However, on average, the interest rates range from 8% -13%.
A TD line of credit offers your business financial flexibility as you manage cash flow. Not only is it easy to access on-demand, it can also be paid down and used again as your business grows and changes.
Paying your bills on time is crucial to building your score. But even if you pay your bills like clockwork, credit report errors could be damaging your score. One in 4 consumers identified damaging credit report errors, according to a 2012 study by the Federal Trade Commission. However, 4 out of 5 consumers who filed a dispute got their credit report modified, the study found. A follow-up study by the FTC found that 20% of those consumers saw a jump in their credit score after resolving errors. You can get a copy of your credit reports for free once a year at AnnualCreditReport.com and dispute any inaccuracies you find through each of the credit bureaus’ websites (Experian, Equifax and TransUnion).
You may be required to provide additional information related to the specific purpose of the funding you are requesting. For example, if you’re planning to use the loan to buy another business, you need to provide a copy of the purchase contract, the target companies’ financial statements, tax returns, and other details about them.
Alternatively, you can also apply for your small business loans online when using lenders like BFS. This can make obtaining the capital you need even more convenient, no matter when you have time in your day or week to apply.

The 504 program eligibility is more relaxed. Applicants must have a maximum business net worth of $15 million and an average income of less than $5 million for each of the past two years. Other restrictions described in the 7(a) program also apply.
In the event that the monthly lease payment amount from the competing lease company or bank is lower than the monthly payment that is being offered by National Funding for the same equipment and pursuant to the same terms, National Funding will verify the validity and accuracy of the competing leasing company’s or bank’s payment options, terms and the vendor quote. National Funding has the option, in its sole discretion, to either beat the competing leasing company’s or bank’s monthly payment rate, or pay $1000 to the lessee. The lessee must provide National Funding with the competing company’s or bank’s signed lease agreement with payment terms/options, and take delivery of the equipment. Payments will be made within 30 days, and lessee is responsible for any taxes.
Late payment fee: This fee is self- explanatory-it’s charged when loan payment is made past its due date. A late payment fee may be either a flat fee, frequently around $10 to $35, or a percentage of the payment amount or outstanding balance (often 2% – 5%).

I took out an SBA Loan in Dec. 2015, the bank had me pledge $166K of my house (skin in the game). Collateral is the equipment for the business, but it has depreciated and probably will not cover the loan amount.
Unfortunately your situation is like many others that I deal with on a daily basis. In your situation the SBA got a portion of the balance from the foreclosure on the business and the real estate involved. However you are still Personally Guaranteed for the remaining balance. You need to do what is called an “OIC” Offer in Compromise. You do not want to get into wage garnishment or sweeping of personal accounts by the US Department of Treasury.
