Attention Accountants/CPAs…if you, or your client, is considering buying, building or refinancing fixed assets, there’s simply no better program on the market than the SBA 504 Loan Program. In fact, the financing terms offered through this program are so good, 504 lending is up 24% in Fiscal Year 2021. The 504’s below-market fixed rates, repayment terms of up to 25 years and lower monthly payments have already helped thousands of businesses this year…let’s talk about how it can help yours.
504 Loans: Important Tool for Accountants/CPAs
We have something in common. We both have the privilege of helping small business clients grow and strengthen their business. That’s why we want to make sure you’re aware of the biggest opportunity we’ve seen in the 504 Loan Program’s 33+ year history.
Key provisions in the Economic Aid Act allow for six months of SBA 504 Loan payment subsidies, fee eliminations and expanded opportunities for refinancing, all of which are intended to help alleviate economic hardship. New 504 Loan applications approved between February 1, 2021, and September 30, 2021, have the potential to see massive savings.
In a nutshell, the 504 Loan Program provides small businesses with long-term, fixed rate financing, which is most frequently used to buy, build, or refinance fixed assets, usually buildings or equipment. Nationwide, in fiscal year 2020, 504 lending saw double-digit increases, fueling $5.8 billion in new capital investments for 7,000 businesses throughout the U.S. So whether your client is looking to access cash, control overhead expenses, or expand to meet increased demand, the 504 can help pave the way forward.
