As a small business owner, you may wonder if taking out a small business loan impacts your credit score. The answer to this question depends on a few factors. In many cases, small business loan defaults do not impact your personal credit score. However, there are a few situations where a small business loan can have an impact on your personal credit score. Protect Law Group is here to talk about knowing the right time and situation to get and not get a business loan. Get your finances handled by a team that cares by contacting us today!
When Should You Really Not Get a Business Loan?
There are a few situations where it's not a good idea to take out a small business loan default, even if you're confident you'll be able to make the payments. First, if your business is in a very early stage of development, it may not be wise to take out a loan. Your business may not yet have the revenue necessary to make loan payments.
In addition, if you have bad personal credit, you may not want to take out a small business loan. This is because lenders will likely view you as a high-risk borrower. As a result, you may be offered less favorable terms, such as a higher interest rate. If your business doesn't need the money immediately, it may be better to wait until your credit improves.
What Happens if You Default on a Business Loan?
If you default on a small business loan, your personal credit score may be impacted. Defaulting on a small business loan can damage your personal credit score in the same way that defaulting on any other type of loan would damage your credit score. If you're considering taking out a small business loan default, make sure that you will be able to make the payments on time.

Other Scenarios To Look Out For
There are a few other situations where a small business loan default may impact your personal credit score. For example, if you use a personal guarantee to secure the loan, your personal credit score may be impacted if you default on the loan. Additionally, if you take out a small business loan and use your home as collateral, your personal credit score may be impacted if you default on the loan.

$375,000 SBA 504 LOAN - SBA OIC CASH SETTLEMENT
Client personally guaranteed SBA 504 loan balance of $375,000. Debt had been cross-referred to Treasury at the time we got involved with the case. We successfully had debt recalled to the SBA where we then presented an SBA OIC that was accepted for $58,000.
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. 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 we also save him approximately $227,945 over the term of the workout.
$488,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION
Clients personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan. The SBA referred the debt to the Department of Treasury, which was seeking payment of $487,981 from our clients. We initially filed a Cross-Servicing Dispute, which was denied. As a result, we filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals asserting legal defenses and supporting evidence uncovered during the discovery and investigation phase of our services. Ultimately, the SBA settled the debt for $25,000 - saving our clients approximately $462,981.
