This business qualifies for SBA financing, since it has good books and records, and is priced appropriately for its Discretionary Earnings.

Down payment for the business would be approximately $37,750, assuming an SBA loan, sales price of the business of $364,000, $10,000 borrowed for working capital, and loan expenses added to the SBA loan of $5,500.

The advantages of a business being able to be financed with an SBA-guaranteed loan are:

1) A lower down payment than a seller would require were they providing financing (typically only 10% of the Project Cost is
required by SBA rules);
2) A much longer term than a seller would offer (typically 10 years per SBA rules); and
3) A lower interest rate than a seller would typically offer (currently around 9.5%).

Often a conventional loan is not a possibility in financing the purchase of a business, because the cash flow of most successful businesses is worth more than the value of the business’ assets, so there is insufficient collateral to secure a conventional loan. SBA loans are based on the cash flow of the business and for the most part are made irrespective of the amount of collateral available.


The SBA historically has charged a guaranty fee of approximately 3.5% of the guaranteed portion of the loan, which is 75% of the total loan. The guaranty fee is added to the loan.

Currently, there is no guaranty fee on loans up to $500,000.

On this business, the savings in guaranty fees is approximately $8,836, as long as the current attractive SBA guaranty fee provisions remain in place.
