Listen To This Article

Today we’ll be answering the frequently asked question: “How long does it take to get an SBA loan?” And we’ll also provide a few hints on how to expedite the process while we’re at it.

How Long Does It Take to Get an SBA Loan?

How Long Does it Take to Get an SBA Loan?

The short answer is that it typically takes an average of 6 months or more through banks and other lenders. However, if you can’t wait that long to get funded, National created an expedited process that can close SBA deals in as little as 45 days. 
Here’s how we do it:

Why is the SBA Process Usually So Long?

Part of the reason for why an SBA loan might take months to acquire through banks is that sometimes businesses don’t apply correctly, or rather, they present an incomplete financial picture.
To fix that, National has an in-house industry-leading SBA preparation team that prepare all necessary paperwork for our clients, which saves them time and cuts the SBA process down to days instead of months. So if you’re considering applying for an SBA loan, and don’t have the time to get your books in order, the Business Financing Advisors at National can do it all for you, quick and easy.

Avoid Incompetent SBA Lenders

The bigger, more prevalent reason is that there are a lot of incompetent lenders out there. Lenders that don’t know how to process SBA paperwork properly, and take their time learning as they go.
Choose someone like National with years of experience with funding thousands of small businesses nationwide with SBA loans, and who has connections to the most competent and knowledgeable SBA lenders in the world. They know what it takes to get the job done right, and how to get it done as quickly and efficiently as possible. That’s how we get it done in 45 days, instead of 6+ months.
