504 vs 7a

504 Loan

  • An SBA 504 loan is for real estate, tenant improvements, and equipment. It cannot finance inventory, working capital, or accounts receivable.

  • The term on a 504 is for ten, twenty or twenty five years with a fixed interest rate for both periods for the term of the loan.

  • The interest rate for the 504 loan is tied to the ten or five year Treasury Bill. It is usually below conventional interest rates.

  • The 504 loan is a partnership with a third party lender such as a bank. It is structured as 50% bank, 40% EFC, 10% borrower, unless it is a new business or special purpose buildings where the down payment is increased by 5% for each.

  • The 504 loan uses the collateral being financed and typically does not use the home of the borrower or other assets.

  • There is no limit to the project size.


7a Loan

  • Can be used for any real estate, inventory, working capital, or receivables.

  • It is usually a variable rate loan, not fixed as in the 504.

  • It is frequently uses all available assets of the borrower and not just the collateral of the project being financed as in the 504 loan.

  • 7a loans typically require more than 10% down.

  • 7a loans are typically for shorter terms than the 504 loan.

  • 7a loans are done with the bank only, there is no CDC involved.

504 vs 7a

New Debt Refinance Without Expansion

The project starts with an appraisal to determine the amount of loan available.


The maximum amount available to lend based on the appraisal is:


  • 90% no cash out

  • 85% if cash out


Disbursal must be within 9 months of approval.


For the refinance of any federally guaranteed loan, the new installment payment must be at least ten percent lower than existing loan payment.


EBE (eligible business expenses cash out) will be excluded from this calculation.


Provide written proof that the present lender is either unwilling or unable to modify the current payment schedule.


The jobs requirement is modified to allow the existing jobs to be used to qualify the jobs requirement.

This number is calculated from the existing full and part time employees at the time of application.

Otherwise the public policy or community development goals, as well as the energy goals may be used, if applicable.


The business must have been in operation for two years.


The debt can be no younger than 6 months.


All of the debt to be refinanced was used for the business.


The existing debt to be refinanced is the most recent debt, even if it has refinanced other debt that is eligible


85% of the debt to be refinanced must have been for an eligible fixed asset.


Acquired, constructed, or improved:

  • Construction

  • Land

  • Building

  • equipment
