Prepare Your Underwriters and BDOs for New Eligibility Rules Effective July 25: The SBA’s new rules significantly change eligibility requirements for small businesses seeking SBA 7(a) and 504 loans. If you make an underwriting mistake, your guaranty is void. On the other hand, these new rules open up new business possibilities in terms of which small business now qualify for your services. Either way, you’ll want to assess the threats and advantages immediately—before the July 25 adoption deadline.

This Coleman webinar will help your SBA loan underwriters quickly master the new rules, so they can:
✔ Make accurate assessments of loan eligibility
✔ Use new rules to adjust your marketing strategy for small business loans
✔ Explain new rules to your network of loan brokers, real estate brokers, CPAs franchisors, franchisees and other stakeholders
✔ Explain new rules to your credit committee, C-suite and internal auditors

While these new rules promise to help you diversify your loan portfolio with stronger guarantors, reduce your loan losses and improve your PARRiS rating . . . they can also spell trouble for your guaranties if you continue to qualify small businesses that no longer meet SBA requirements. So you can respond intelligently, you’ll learn both the potential and the pitfalls of these changes in this concise, 75-minute recap and analysis of the SBA’s long-awaited rule changes.
