An improving business climate for small businesses is continuing to present new opportunities for banks to provide financing when businesses change hands, often through the Small Business Administration (SBA). Yet, these new opportunities don’t come without added validation. Aimed at protecting the integrity of the loan, the SBA may require an independent business appraisal before guaranteeing the loan.

Doeren Mayhew’s Valuation and Litigation Support Group can provide your bank with an independent loan valuation to satisfy any due diligence requirements necessary for successful financing. Well-versed in the needs of SBA lending requirements and valuation attributes of small businesses, our credentialed professionals stand ready to assist your bank in understanding its lending liability in a time-sensitive manner.

Meeting the Requirements

SBA’s Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 50 10 5(J) may require lenders to request an independent business valuation be performed by a qualified source. A qualified source in the eyes of the SBA is an individual holding one of the following accreditations:

  • Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA)
  • Accredited in Business Valuations (ABV)
  • Certified Business Appraiser (CBA)
  • Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA)

At Doeren Mayhew, each of our valuation experts holds at least one of these accreditations, if not more, to meet the qualifications and certify the information contained in our reports are accurate.
