What Are Some Ways We Can Help With Business Debt Relief?

Our experienced business debt relief consultants are here to help you through this stressful time. 

Hey there, right off the bat, let’s clear a misconception. It’s rather grim, but the fact of the matter is, about half of all start-ups fold-up within the first five years. While entrepreneur life may look all rosy, the path to running a lucrative enterprise is not all sunshine and rainbows. It’s thorny.

You may have started your venture with a foolproof strategy and managed to secure an SBA (Small Business Administration) loan to fuel it. Now, as your business hit some hurdles, that loan debt may be growing into an intimidating beast, ready to devour your plans.

What on Earth is an SBA Loan?

Before we explore the steps to ghost that haunting SBA loan debt, it is vital to understand the nature of these loans. Surprisingly, you don’t approach the Small Business Administration directly for the loan. Instead, you approach your own bank for a loan, which in turn gets its backing from the SBA.

The bank manages all your application paperwork and the likes, but the advantage here is the reduction of risk to the bank since the SBA backs the loan with federal funds. This is crucial to comprehend as you could use this knowledge while settling your loan. (Get more insights here at the official SBA website.)

Finding a Way Out – Loan Forgiveness

Once you get an SBA loan, your bank gets your payments. So, the SBA isn’t technically involved until you fall behind on payments and your lender begins the debt recovery process. But, if you can’t fork out the loan amount, the lender is compensated by the SBA and they in turn, will come knocking at your door.

Here’s where it gets interesting. The lender might cut you some slack and forgive part of your loan. You should, therefore, get in touch with them before the SBA steps in. It’s slightly easier to negotiate terms with the lender than with the bureaucracy of an agency like the SBA.

Black Marks & White Lies: Dealing with an SBA Loan in Default

If you lose the battle and your SBA loan happens to default, it’s important to understand the consequences. Most lenders consider a loan in default once it falls 120 days behind in payments. All hell breaks loose, and the entire loan balance becomes due at once.

If the lender leans on the SBA for repayment, my friend, be ready. The SBA is a relentless collector who will stop at nothing to cover the loan amount.

Hey SBA, How About a Little Forgiveness, Huh?

Even the most successful businesses hit some bumps in the road once in a while. If you’re behind on dues or facing a cash crunch, don’t turn a blind eye. Head straight to your lender and negotiate a payment plan.

Moreover, remember that regular, open communication is the key to resolving this. Don’t turn a blind eye to their calls or demands for documentation. Your reputation and the chance for a loan deferment may rest on your ability to be absolutely transparent in your dealings with them.

An Exit Route. An OIC.

If, in a worst-case scenario, your loan defaults and the SBA steps in, you might be able to opt for an Offer in Compromise (OIC). But, let me clear, the SBA requires your business to be shuttered before approving an OIC, and expects a complete record of your assets, which they might liquidate to settle the loan amount. So, weigh your options carefully.
