SBA offers financing through a lot of different programs; each with its own peculiarities and specificities. While all financing products are equally important and crucial, 7(a) and 504 are two of the most popular programs as they offer flexibility, lower down payments, and favorable prepayment terms. Even though most business owners are savvy and understand the nuances of financing terms, getting a fixed or a floating interest rate on their loan still causes unwarranted complexities.  SBA approved lenders who sell their loans earn higher premiums on variable (floating rate) loans. This higher profitability in variable rates is countered when lenders typically ask for higher servicing fees for fixed-rate loans. The type of interest rates that banks offer mostly depend on factors...

Here are three great reasons to consider refinancing your current loan or using the SBA 7(a) for your next acquisition.  Cornovus Capital can connect you with the SBA lender most interested in your kind of work. Not every SBA lender will say “yes” to every kind of loan, which is why you want to talk with the experts at Cornovus Capital.  Reason #1 Borrowers who take out new 7(a) loans prior to October, 2021 will receive the first 6 months of principal and interest payments. Payments will be capped at $9,000/month for a maximum total of $54,000. We consider that “free money.” Reason #2 SBA is waiving the guarantee fees for borrower and lender!
