The number one reason SBA denies its 7(a) guaranty is the borrower is ineligible for SBA financing.

When a loan is approved to an ineligible borrower, the SBA guaranty is voided right out of the box. By definition, SBA can grant a loan guaranty only to an eligible small business.

This Coleman webinar will discuss SBA’s eligibility rules in a manner to make it easy for you to remember the rules, by giving you the broader background of why certain businesses are ineligible. In other words, we don’t just give you a list, we explore the reasoning behind the list.

We will also update the presentation to include all of the January 1 SBA SOP 5010F program changes, as well as the proposed changes to the personal resource test that will be officially announced soon.

This webinar is geared for loan underwriters who wrestle with these decisions daily.

Remember, a poor loan underwriting decision will probably not affect your SBA guaranty. A poor eligibility decision will invalidate your SBA guaranty.

The webinar will review the SBA 7(a) Eligibility Questionnaire, as well as the new SBA forms required, whose release are imminent.

You will learn:

  • SBA Eligibility 101 – the basic eligibility requirements
  • Rules for Non US citizens
  • The problem with franchising eligibility. When is a franchise a small business? When is it not considered a small business.
  • SBA’s definition of an affiliate, including all of the supporting documentation you must obtain by all parties
  • When and how you should abdicate your PLP eligibility decision on a specific loan and submit it for SBA’s approval.
  • The “prudent and reasonable lender” test you must follow throughout the eligibility determination
  • Understanding the new SBA application forms
  • The SBA form 912 process is changing! Understand when you need to obtain SBA form 912. What is the best practice to process these forms given borrower’s misrepresentations will make the loan ineligible
  • Understanding size standards
  • What you need to know about lender preference rules
  • The soon to be announced changes to the personal resource test rule
  • How to calculate maximum dollar program limits for borrowers and guarantors
  • The implications, when you sign the 4-I. The specific best practice checklist you must do, before you affix your signature to this all-important form
  • Finally, you will understand why the “credit elsewhere” test is becoming more important in eligibility determinations. Know what to do to address this standard
