McMahon's leadership at SBA critical for the economy

by Tony Wilkinson, Opinion Contributor -- as published in The Hill 03/01/17 02:00 PM EST

SBA has provided updated franchise forms

SBA Policy Note 5000-1941 which outlines temporary changes in the franchise review process for both 7(a) and 504 loans, announced that SBA now will accept either of the following "as sufficient to establish that a franchisee is not “affiliated” with a franchisor: (1) the revised SBA Addendum to Franchise Agreement; or (2) a Certification ... together with the franchisor’s SBA negotiated addendum ( SBA Form 2463)." SBA has supplied the updated SBA Form 2462 with a drop-down selection tool to accurately title the form for each specific case (that is, select: Franchise, License, Distributor, Membership, Jobber, Other), as well as written instructions on how to complete the Form 2462.  [PLEASE Note: It is always best to download SBA forms directly from]

It is important to recall that with the publication of Policy Notice 5000-1941, although SBA is temporarily offering two options for establishing that there is no affiliation between franchisor and franchisee, all other changes to the franchise review process effective on 1/1/2017 remain in place. Therefore:

  • NO SBA-sanctioned Franchise Registry. (The new temporary option outlined in Notice 5000-1941 is not a return to the former Registry process.)
  • NO FRUNS numbers – SBA has its own unique numeric identification system
  • Lender must identify the specific franchise of the applicant using E-Tran / SBAOne
  • If business relationship meets Federal Trade Commission (FTC) definition of “franchise” – there are now TWO options for establishing no affiliation between franchisor and franchisee
