What is an SBA Offer in Compromise?

From Protect Law Group, an SBA Offer in Compromise is a settlement agreement between a borrower and the Small Business Administration (SBA) wherein the borrower agrees to pay a reduced amount to satisfy their outstanding debt. It offers small business owners a chance to resolve financial issues and potentially avoid bankruptcy or foreclosure.

Eligibility

To be eligible for an SBA Offer in Compromise, borrowers must demonstrate financial hardship and an inability to repay the debt in full. Factors like their financial situation, asset value, and future income potential are evaluated.

Process

The process involves assessing the borrower's financial standing, consulting with an experienced SBA loan attorney, preparing and submitting a comprehensive offer, and negotiating a settlement with the SBA. Once an agreement is reached, fulfilling the settlement terms within the designated timeframe is crucial.

Benefits

Benefits of an SBA Offer in Compromise include debt reduction, allowing borrowers to repay a more manageable amount. However, it's important to be aware of the potential temporary impact on credit scores. Recovering from financial hardship and avoiding bankruptcy can help rebuild credit in the long run. Compliance with the settlement terms is essential to prevent the revival of the original debt.

Helping You Succeed

Small business owners facing overwhelming financial burdens due to defaulting on SBA loans can benefit from considering an SBA Offer in Compromise, a type of SBA loan forgiveness. By understanding the process, eligibility criteria, and advantages, they can take the necessary steps to explore this debt relief option. 

Consultation with legal professionals specializing in small business administration loans can increase the chances of a successful negotiation. Don't let the stress of debt hinder your entrepreneurial spirit—explore the possibilities of SBA debt relief today.
