Frequently Asked Questions

What is an SBA loan?

An SBA loan is backed by the Small Business Administration - a government entity dedicated to the growth of small businesses.

TD Bank processes your application and lends you money. The Small Business Administration guarantees part of the loan, but the SBA doesn't actually lend any funds. It's this guarantee that allows SBA loans to offer flexible solutions - and why it's such a good choice for small businesses.

Why an SBA loan?

SBA loans typically offer flexible terms and conditions versus conventional counterparts. Which means lower monthly payments and more opportunities to keep capital in your business.

Who should apply for an SBA loan?

Any small business owner can apply and take advantage of SBA loan terms. If you have excellent credit, cash flow and equity in your business, all the better. If you may not qualify for a traditional commercial loan, an SBA loan may be your best bet for financing.

The U.S. SBA also offers education and support to small businesses, which is an excellent resource as you grow.

Do SBA loans take a long time to fund?

As a U.S. SBA preferred lender, TD Bank has a lending group especially dedicated to SBA customers. Our experienced Business Development Officers, Credit Underwriting and Closing Groups help keep the approval and closing process running smoothly as well as provide funds quickly and efficiently.

How can I learn more about SBA loans?
