Can My Business Submit an Offer in Compromise for a Covid EIDL Loan?

If you obtained a Covid EIDL loan and your business is struggling financially, you may be able to compromise the debt for less than what is owed on behalf of your business.  Traditionally, the SBA’s policy has been “compromise negotiations with an Obligor on a Disaster Business Loan should not be initiated until after the business is closed.”

However, in response to the huge volume of Covid EIDL loans, the SBA has issued a new offer in compromise (OIC) form that suggests the SBA may be entertaining OICs for a business that is still active.  The form identifies the necessary documentation that a business should submit for the OIC.

It is unknown at this time what the SBA will do with such OIC submissions as they have not made any statements or issued any guidance as to OICs on Covid EIDL loans submitted on behalf of a business.

$150,000 SBA 7A LOAN - NEGOTIATED WORKOUT AGREEMENT

$150,000 SBA 7A LOAN - NEGOTIATED WORKOUT AGREEMENT

The client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan for $150,000. His business revenue decreased significantly causing default and an accelerated balance of $143,000. The client received the SBA's Official 60-day notice with the debt scheduled for referral to the Treasury’s Bureau of Fiscal Service for aggressive collection in less than 26 days. We were hired to represent him, respond to the SBA's Official 60-day notice, and prevent enforced collection by the Treasury and the Department of Justice. We successfully negotiated a structured workout with an extended maturity date that included a reduction of the 14% interest rate and removal of substantial collection fees (30% of the loan balance), effectively saving the client over $242,000.
