The attached notices were just issued regarding SBA’s loan programs.
notice should be read fully to get the complete details, but the following lists
important highlights from each:
Notice 5000-1172 announces the fees for 7(a) and 504 loans for 2011:
For 7(a) loans approved on or after October 1, 2010, the Yearly Fee due from
Lenders to SBA will be 0.55 percent (55 basis points) of the guaranteed
portion of the outstanding balance on the 7(a) loan (same as 2010).
For 504 loans approved on or after October 1, 2010, the Annual Fee paid by
borrowers on an ongoing basis to SBA will be increased from 0.389 percent to
0.749 percent (74.9 basis points) of the outstanding balance of the 504 loan.
The fee relief afforded under Section 501 of the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009 has been extended through December 31, 2010 by
the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. This means that on all 7(a) loans
approved from October 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010 the upfront
guaranty fee payable to SBA will be eliminated. All other fees in the 7(a) loan
program will be the same as for FY 2010.
Notice 5000-1173 Extension of Recovery Act Provisions:
Loans in the queue:
For 7(a) loan applications (other than SBA Express loans) that are in the 7(a)
Recovery Loan Queue, SBA will approve these loans with a 90 percent
guaranty in addition to fee relief as soon as funds become available (expected
on or after October 1, 2010).
SBA expects that applications that remain in the 504 Recovery Loan Queue will
be funded on or after October 1, 2010. Borrowers and lenders are advised
that while these loans will be eligible for processing fee relief, they also will be
subject to a higher annual fee of 0.749%.
Restricted Uses Eliminated:
The specific restriction that none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made
available in the Recovery Act may be used by any State or local government,
or any private entity, for any casino or other gambling establishment,
aquarium, zoo, golf course, or swimming pool will not apply to 7(a) and 504
loans with reduced or eliminated fees or to 7(a) loans with the higher guaranty
percentage that are approved under the Small Business Jobs Act.
Notice 5000-1174 New and Expanded Dealer Floor Plan Program:
The Small Business Jobs Act authorizes a new, expanded Dealer Floor
Plan (DFP) Pilot Program. It increases SBA’s 7(a) and Dealer Floor Plan
maximum loan amount to $5 million and addresses certain other issues raised
by dealers and lenders about the expiring DFP Initiative. SBA believes these
changes will make the new DFP Pilot Program more attractive to a larger
segment of the small business dealer community and the small business floor
plan lending community. Since the new program requires significant changes
it is expected that it will not be available for several months. SBA welcomes
input from industry trade associations, lenders, dealers and other interested
The current DFP Pilot will expire on September 30, 2010 so there will be a
period of time that this program will not be available.
Notice 5000-1174 New Alternate Size Standards:
This Notice announces that, effective September 27, 2010; the new
temporary alternative size standard replaces and supersedes the existing
alternative size standard, based on tangible net worth and net income, for SBA
7(a) and 504 loan programs:
An applicant for a business loan under section 7(a) or an applicant for a
development company loan under title V of the Small Business Investment Act
of 1958 may be eligible for such a loan if:
(i) the maximum tangible net worth of the applicant is not more than
(ii) the average net income after Federal income taxes (excluding any carry-
over losses) of the applicant for the 2 full fiscal years before the date of the
application is not more than $5,000,000.
