Prepare and File the SBA Loan Offer In Compromise

The Small Business Administration provides loans for entrepreneurs to start smaller business ventures. These loans are guaranteed by the government and require the business owner to pay them back according to the schedule set up. When the business owner faces financial difficulties, they may not have the funds needed to repay the loan. This could result in a default. When this happens, an SBA Loan Offer in Compromise could prevent the company from facing financial ruin.

What is an SBA Loan Offer in Compromise (Form 1150)?

Essentially, the offer in compromise is a settlement offer submitted by a financial advisor or attorney. It reflects are reduced value in which the business owner could pay their lender to settle the debt. An SBA loan default requires action on the borrower's part to avoid unwanted circumstances. This compromise is an effective strategy to prevent these circumstances and prevent a larger financial loss for the owner.

When Should Business Owners Utilize an Offer in Compromise When Dealing with the Small Business Administration?

The owner should utilize an offer in compromise as soon as they receive the SBA demand letter. This letter is the last step of the notification process before the SBA takes further legal action. These actions could include seizure of property and assets. They could place a lien against the borrower's checking account, savings account, and all property in their name. These measures are taken to acquire payment of the total balance plus any late fees that accumulated.

Can the SBA Foreclose on the Owner's Home if You Fail to Submit an SBA Loan Offer in Compromise?

Through an SBA loan foreclosure, the lender could seize the borrower's primary residence. This could occur if the property is used as collateral or included in the properties owned by the business. If properties and assets that are business-related could be used to pay off the loan, the primary residence isn't in jeopardy. However, the consumer may need an attorney to fight against these actions.

Small business owners must take quick action if their loan defaults. These actions could lead to a domino effect in which they lose all their property and assets. An attorney could help them by finding a better solution to this problem. Business owners who need assistance with a compromise or Tax Offset Program should contact an attorney immediately.

The client was personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture.  After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars.  We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA).  As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy) but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.



Client personally guaranteed SBA 7(a) loan for $350,000. The small business failed but because of the personal guarantee liability, the client continued to pay the monthly principal & interest out-of-pocket draining his savings. The client hired a local attorney but quickly realized that he was not familiar with SBA-backed loans or their standard operating procedures. Our firm was subsequently hired after the client received the SBA's official 60-day notice. After back-and-forth negotiations, we were able to convince the SBA to reinstate the loan, retract the acceleration of the outstanding balance, modify the original terms, and approve a structured workout reducing the interest rate from 7.75% to 0% and extending the maturity date for a longer period to make the monthly payments affordable. In conclusion, not only we were able to help the client avoid litigation and bankruptcy, but our SBA lawyers also saved him approximately $227,945 over the term of the workout.



Small business sole proprietor obtained an SBA COVID-EIDL loan for $500,000. Client defaulted causing SBA to charge-off the loan, accelerate the balance and refer the debt to Treasury's Bureau of Fiscal Service for aggressive collection. Treasury added $180,000 in collection fees totaling $680,000+. Client tried to negotiate with Treasury but was only offered a 3-year or 10-year repayment plan. Client hired the Firm to represent before the SBA, Treasury and a Private Collection Agency.  After securing government records through discovery and reviewing them, we filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings & Appeals (OHA) court challenging the SBA's referral of the debt to Treasury citing a host of purported violations. The Firm was able to negotiate a reinstatement and recall of the loan back to the SBA, participation in the Hardship Accommodation Plan, termination of Treasury's enforced collection and removal of the statutory collection fees.
