SBA 7(a) Relief Loan (Paycheck Protection Program)

New Program – CARES Act (Updated 4/2/2020)
• You can apply through Halo Capital, and learn more here
• You are eligible if you own a small business, are self-employed, are not presently in bankruptcy, and have not previously defaulted on government debt (i.e. SBA loan, student loan, FHA mortgage, etc.)
• Loan amounts up to $10,000,000**
• 1.00% Interest rate for For-Profit and Non-For-Profit businesses
• 2-year full payout loan, and payments will be deferred for 6 months
• Unsecured and no personal guarantee
• No minimum credit score requirements
• Eligible for loan forgiveness***
• No more than 25% of the forgiven amount may be for non-payroll costs
• Can only be used for payroll support including medical leave, costs related to health benefits, employee salaries, mortgage payments, rent, utilities, insurance, and any other debt payments incurred before 2/15/2020
• No prepayment penalties
• SBA guarantee fees and lender fees are waived

*A borrower with a current EIDL loan can only also receive the SBA 7(a) Relief loan if the EIDL loan is unrelated to COVID-19
**The maximum loan amount is the lesser of $10,000,000 or the product obtained by multiplying average total monthly payments for payroll costs during the 1-year period before the loan is made by 2.5. So if the loan was made on April 1, 2020, and average monthly payroll costs for the period April 1, 2019, to April 1, 2020, were $1,500,000, the maximum loan amount would be $3,750,000. Payroll amounts over $100,000 per person, will be excluded from the calculation
***small businesses that take out these loans can get some or all of their loans forgiven. Generally speaking, as long as employers continue paying employees at normal levels during the eight weeks following the origination of the loan, then the amount they spent on payroll costs (excluding costs for any compensation above $100,000 annually), mortgage interest, rent payments and utility payments can be combined and that portion of the loan will be forgiven. Any loan amounts not forgiven at the end of one year are carried forward as an ongoing loan with terms of a max of 2 years at 0.5% interest. The 100% loan guarantee remains intact.
