SBA Guaranteed Loan
The SBA, or Small Business Administration, is a Federal Government Guarantee Program that incentivizes banks to make loans to businesses who would otherwise not qualify for various reasons, such as, lack of time in business, experience or personal liquidity, or poor credit history etc.
The SBA incentivizes partner banks by guaranteeing between 75% – 90% of the principal loan amount meaning the bank’s risk in case of default is only between 10% – 25% of the outstanding principal loan balance at the time of default.
SBA Guaranteed Loans are commonly used by business owners and entrepreneurs to purchase owner occupied real estate, acquire a business or franchise, to purchase equipment and obtain working capital for growth.
Unlike conventional loans, businesses must first meet SBA eligibility standards prior to applying. The two most important eligibility tests are tangible net worth and net profit. All businesses applying for an SBA guaranteed loan must possess less than $15MM in tangible net worth or $5MM in net profit for the fiscal year prior to submitting the application.
There are other eligibility requirements that will be addressed in future episodes.
