The 7(a) loans mentioned above have a maximum loan amount of $5 million. If the loans are made as “express” loans (which require less application paperwork and can be funded faster) the maximum loan amount is $500,000
Terms / SBA Loan Duration
Typical SBA loans have a term of 10 years or less. If the loan is for real estate or certain types of equipment the terms can be longer - in the range of 25 years.
Interest Rates for SBA Funding
The rates for SBA funding will vary based on the business profile, term length and the current interest rate environment. The maximum that can be charged is set by the SBA - ranging from base rate + between 3% and 6.5% depending on the amount of the loan.
SBA Prepayment Penalties
Most SBA loans do not have prepayment penalties. However, for loans with maturity of 15 years or more there may be penalties depending on the timing and amount of the prepayment.
