Refinance a Business Loan: Small Business Debt Refinancing

With small business lending picking up, and prime interest rates at an all time low, now could be a good time for small businesses to refinance existing business debt. Refinancing usually involves paying off one commercial loan with the proceeds of another, or extending the maturity date of an existing loan.

  • Bank refinancing terms: 1-10 years

SBA Refinacing

With their low interest rates, a very low down payment requirement and extended, an SBA enhanced business loan is a very appealing financing option to small business owners.

While the Small Business Administration offers numerous SBA loan programs to help refinance business debt, their main refinancing programs are the SBA 7(a) Loan Program, and the SBA CDC/504 Loan Program.

SBA 7(a) Refinacing

SBA 7(a) refinancing can be used to refinance existing business debt, provided the new loan is secured with at least the same security as the old debt. If the SBA 7(a) loan is used to refinance a business acquisition, the maximum term is 10 years, and 25 years if the largest percentage of the business assets is real estate.

  • SBA 7(a) Refinance Rates: 4.5-6.5%

Equipment Sale-Leaseback

Equipment sale and leaseback is the sale of business equipment for a lump sum (usually up to 70% of the original price) and the leasing of the equipment back to the small business for a period of time. At the end of the term the seller will usually retains ownership.

  • Equipment Sale Leaseback Rates: 5-20%
  • Equipment Sale Leaseback Terms: 1-5 years

Alternative Business Loan Refinancing

If you have taken a merchant cash advance to help fund your small business, finding additional financing to cover working capital needs can be very hard to find. Being that you have a lien placed on the business’s assets, getting another lender to take a 2nd position can be difficult to find. Even when you do find a commercial lender willing to take a 2nd position, the rates can be exorbitant.

An option can be to have another lender buy out your merchant cash advance, and lend you additional working capital to finance your business needs.

  • Alternative Refinance Rates: 9-50%
  • Alternative Refinance Terms: 4 months to 5 years
