SBA Form 413: Personal Financial Statement

SBA Form 413 determines your loan eligibility based on your personal net worth. If applicable, joint assets held between you and your spouse should be included on this form, except in cases where there is a legal document, such as a prenuptial agreement, separating such assets. Note: this does not imply that your spouse is a guarantor of the loan.

Projections and Assumptions

Length: 1 page

Lenders want to see how you expect the company to perform as a result of the loan. After you’ve had a chance to analyze your business, its market, and how the proposed SBA loan will affect the business, please use the Projections and Assumptions Excel Spreadsheet to forecast the business income and expenses assuming the loan is approved. The SBA requires that the first year be done month-by-month to reflect any seasonality, and years 2 and 3 can be done annually.

Management Resume Template

Length: 1-2 pages

The management resume is a key component of the SBA loan application; if completed correctly, it can play a substantial role in increasing a lender’s confidence in you as a borrower.

If you are acquiring a business, we recommend including a brief summary of the company, along with some explanation of how you will ensure the company’s success and growth.

For your professional experience, be sure to emphasize strengths and skills that you have previously developed that will be pertinent to the success of the business you are acquiring. Include information pertaining to management, leadership, responsibilities held, industry experience, interpersonal skills, and quantitative skills.
