Don’t be caught off guard when SBA reviews your portfolio. Ensure you are compliant with the new changes to SBA Forms 159 and 912.

While SBA offers a grace period to use old forms for applications “in process,” as with recent revisions, changes are effective immediately.

Lance Sexton will teach your staff the new rules and how to document them correctly in order to ace your loan review and protect your institution’s SBA loan guarantee.

Check out the major revisions for SBA Form 159:

● Supporting documentation for lender fee calculations
● How to calculate fees based on the percentage of gross loan amount
● How to calculate fees based on hourly rates

The “Fee Disclosure and Compensation Agreement” Form 912 has been completely reformatted. Responsibilities for the Borrowers and Lenders have been rewritten and clarified and required disclosures.

And, both forms are required for SBA 7(a) and 504 loans.

Regarding SBA Form 912, we will review the completion, approval and processing of the form. There have been changes to the form, the procedure for character determinations.

Penalties for noncompliance are stiff. Borrower refunds and SBA guaranty repairs are threatened.

And, of course, buried in the regs is the catchall warning, “Violation of any of the SBA loan Program Requirements regarding SBA Form 159 . . .may result in SBA’s suspension or revocation of the privilege of conducting business with the SBA.”

This professionally taught Coleman webinar by an award winning instructor will put everything into context — what’s important, and what’s not — to give you a best-practice guide to make sure you are in compliance with the new SBA regulations for SBA Form 159.

You and your team will learn what SBA expects in the processing of these forms — so they are accurate and perfect — every time.
