SBA Business Valuation Requirements

Learn about SBA valuation requirements, the valuation process, goodwill, and more!
Determining the value of a business is the key component to the analysis of any loan application for a change of ownership. Accurate business valuations are required by the SBA as the change in ownership will result in new debt unrelated to business operations and create an intangible asset.


Join us as Neal Patel, principal of Reliant Business Valuation, a business valuation and equipment appraisal firm specializing in SBA-related valuations nationwide working with over 150 of the nation’s top SBA lenders, shares his expertise during a webinar on Tuesday, May 13 at 10 a.m.
