Benefits of an SBA Loan
An SBA 7(a) or 504 Loan provides businesses with access to capital that might not otherwise be available, with more flexible underwriting than conventional business loans.
With an SBA Loan, businesses can benefit from:
- Lower down payment requirements
- Longer repayment terms – up to 25 years
- Lower capital injection requirements
- Lower cash flow requirements to cover payments
- Ability to conserve cash for operating expenses
Texas Capital Bank’s loan portal is ready to accommodate the loan forgiveness process. If you have not already made us aware of your preferred date to apply for forgiveness, please contact us.
How should applicants prepare?
To ensure you’re ready to apply for forgiveness, please review the loan forgiveness application instructions and the appropriate loan forgiveness application, and gather the necessary documentation.
You will not be required to submit a completed form, because Texas Capital Bank will generate your form based on your input in our portal. However, you should be familiar with which form your business will use.
There are currently three forms that can be used to apply for forgiveness. On June 16, the SBA released a revised PPP Loan Forgiveness Application (Form 3508) and an EZ version of the application (Form 3508-EZ). To determine if you qualify for Form 3508-EZ, one of the following statements must be true:
- Are self-employed and have no employees OR
- Didn’t decrease their employees’ wages or salaries by more than 25%, and didn’t reduce their employees’ number or hours OR
- Experienced reductions in business activity due to COVID-19 related health directives and didn’t reduce their employees’ salaries or wages by more than 25%.
On October 8, the SBA released another simplified PPP loan forgiveness application for loans of $50,000 or less (Form 3508S). For more information, you may reference Form 3850S Instructions for Borrowers by clicking here.
