The up-front guaranty fee on SBA Express loans of $150,001 to $350,000 approved to qualified small businesses (see below) will continue to be 0% through FY2015.
The up-front guaranty fee for non-SBA Express 7(a) loans of $150,001 up to and including $5,000,000 approved to qualified small businesses (see below) will be reduced by 50%, as follows:
For loans with a maturity in excess of 12 months:
For loans of $150,001 to $700,000: 1.5% of the guaranteed portion;
For loans of $700,001 to $5,000,000: 1.75% of the guaranteed portion up to $1,000,000 PLUS 1.875% of the guaranteed portion over $1,000,000;

There is no reduction in the Lender’s annual service fee for loans over $150,000. Lenders are also reminded of existing policy that any multiple of 7(a) loans made within 90 days of one another are considered as one loan for the purpose of determining the guaranty amount and guaranty fees.
