For small businesses at different stages of the business cycle, from start-ups to mature businesses, approaching the Small Business Administration or SBA for consultation or advice can be a boon. The SBA, after all, is a United States government agency that provides support to small businesses. It encourages and promotes the spirit of entrepreneurship in the small business community by providing different forms of assistance that a small business owner can benefit from.
One of the more important roles that the SBA plays is to help the small business community avail themselves of loans more efficiently. It administers loans and acts as a guarantor to the bank or other financial institutions. It is worth noting that the Small Business Administration does not provide or resell loans, but rather, it guarantees them. Compared to commercial business loans, an SBA-backed loan allows for longer repayment terms at significantly more affordable rates.
These easier terms allow the business to borrow more money than it would normally get from commercial banks or other financing companies. SBA loans may be used to finance a business start up, to obtain additional capital for your existing business, or to buy a business.
The SBA requires an appraisal as part of the documentation required to secure a loan for the purpose of buying a business. This appraisal will determine how much the business is worth and the size of the loan. As an independent third-party expert in the appraising businesses, we can assist you with this process and provide you the required appraisal at a very affordable rate.
