The Broad Scope of an SBA Offer in Compromise

For many years, the Small Business Administration (SBA) has been helping individuals and small businesses acquire loans for entrepreneurial enterprises. Many small businesses are in business today thanks to the SBA. Because the SBA is a government organization, they have a broad reach and many banks, both national as well a regional, are authorized to offer these loans. However, if a business were to fail before an SBA loan is repaid, collection efforts can be significant. Many times, a law practice that understands things such as an SBA Offer in Compromise can be helpful.

When a business fails prior to fully repaying an SBA loan, the former business owner may start to panic when they first receive an SBA demand letter. The reason for this is often times, an SBA loan may require a certain level of collateral in order to receive the funds. Many failed business owners may be looking at the possibility of losing their property, such as cars, valuable jewelry or even their home.

Fortunately, there are ways of avoiding things such as an SBA loan foreclosure and the seizing of person property or assets. However, it all starts with enlisting the help of a law firm that deals directly in SBA default issues.

Many times, an Offer in Compromise can be made and this sort of arrangement is rather sweeping. For example, an Offer in Compromise can help reduce a persons debt to the SBA significantly. In some cases, the remaining balance can be cut by over 50%. In some cases, an Offer in Comprise can include an affordable repayment plan. This can help prevent foreclosure or assets being seized. In addition, through a Tax Offset Program, any income tax refunds the guarantor of the loan may receive can be turned over to the SBA for default loan payments.

SBA loan default may not be the ideal thing, but it does happen. However, there is no reason to panic. With the help of a law firm advocating for you, the many avenues to reduce the amount you owe as well as the options in an Offer in Compromise for repayment, things may not be as bad as you first thought. If you are facing a possible default on your SBA loan, or it has already been defaulted on, you need legal advice today.
