The Small Business Administration (SBA) has established specific requirements that a company must satisfy to be eligible for a 504 loan (SBA). To begin, the company must be a for-profit firm based in the United States and be actively engaged in business there. In addition, the company needs to meet the SBA’s size requirements, which, in most cases, entails having fewer than 500 employees (although this number can shift depending on the sector).

A 504 loan is intended to assist enterprises with acquiring fixed assets, such as real estate or machinery, that will be used for operational requirements within the company. As a result, the company must have a plan to use the funding from the loan to either buy or upgrade such assets. Also, the funded assets must have a useful life of at least ten years to qualify.

Last but not least, the potential borrower needs to be able to provide evidence that they are financially capable of repaying the loan. This includes submitting financial statements and any other pertinent documents, in addition to completing specific requirements pertaining to one’s creditworthiness. To determine whether or not the company will be able to repay the loan, the SBA will look at the company’s cash flow and other financial indicators.
