Machinery & Equipment Financing
All costs associated with the purchase, transportation, dismantling, or installation of machinery and equipment can be considered part of the project cost. (If the project is only for machinery and equipment, the machinery and equipment has to have a useful life of at least 10 years). The costs of dismantling, moving, and installation of equipment may be included if these costs are part of a more comprehensive 504 project.

How SBA 504 Loans Work
A bank provides a first mortgage for
50% of the total project costs
SBA 504 LOAN
Growth Corp provides an SBA 504 Loan
for 40% of the total project costs
The borrower provides a down payment of
typically just 10% of the total project costs
Higher equity requirements exist for start-ups or special purpose properties…the equity required will increase by 5% if one condition exists or by 10% if both.
SBA 504 Loans are made in conjunction with your local bank...so you can keep your lending relationship.

Unlike real estate, terms for equipment loans vary greatly. Depending on the nature of the borrower’s lending relationship with the bank and how much equity they have in any existing equipment, the terms could run anywhere from three to ten years, a three to seven year range for the balloon and up to 20% down payment. However, utilizing the 504 Loan Program, up to 90% of the project costs can be financed. The bank lends up to 50%, thereby reducing its risk and corresponding interest rate. Growth Corp lends up to 40% at a fixed rate for 20 years, with a down payment of only 10% from the borrower.
