In recognition of the importance of small business to a strong economy, the National Business Association (NBA) has developed First Step Review to help meet the informational needs of existing business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs.

First Step is a screening tool to help smaller businesses (with less than 100 employees and annual sales of less than $5 million) determine the likelihood of success in gaining a guaranteed loan. If you gain a score of 70 or more on First Step, then the next step would be to find a lender who is SBA certified for loans.

Loans come from local lenders, not the SBA; the SBA helps by guaranteeing a major portion of the loans to reduce the risk to lenders. Your local Small Business Development Development Center (SBDC), local SCORE chapter, or local SBA office should be able to help you find a local participating lender. (A listing of certified lenders is available. Your local SBDC, SCORE, or SBA office should also be able to help you gain a better understanding of the criteria and steps necessary to gain a loan.

First Step Review requires version 4.0 or higher of Internet Explorer or Netscape. (If you need to upgrade, these browsers are available for free at their Home pages.)

Please understand that First Step Review is a screening tool for you to prepare for visits to your lender. Your lender and the SBA will need clear evidence to support your answers, so overstating answers on First Step will not be in your best interest.

Our Only Business is Putting Money into Your Business

During these times of tightening profit margins, it is increasingly important that businesses maximize all the revenues they have earned. We are pleased to introduce a new Member Benefit Program for National Business Association members from NCSPlus Incorporated, one of the nation's leading collection service/accounts receivable management firms.

NCSPlus Incorporated is an Accounts Receivable Management firm, working to recover slow and delinquent accounts and bad checks for over 35,000 companies, institutions, and medical practices throughout the country. The NCSPlus Cash Recovery System increases recovery rate, lowers collection costs, and improves cash flow.

As opposed to collection companies that charge a percentage of the patient bill, or a flat fee and a percentage, NCSPlus charges NBA members only a low flat fee. NCSPlus is not compensated based upon a percentage of the debt, so they pursue both small and large balances and give equal attention to both. Because of their customer service focus, NCSPlus reports a recovery rate that is more than twice the national average.

NBA members who enroll in this program receive a free Bonus Upgrade Package that includes:

  • Money-back guarantee on the recovery of 400% of the system price
  • Complimentary computer maintenance fee
  • Free debtor reporting to the major credit bureaus

NCSPlus has affirmed to NBA its compliance with all state and federal collections laws and requirements, and holds you harmless from actions taken in response to its efforts to collect on your accounts.

NBA Operating Plan Forecast (OPF) or Projected Profit & Loss Statement, is an excellent tool for the small business owner. The forecast plan will not only show you what to expect in profits, it will also forewarn you of impending problems. This program will allow you to complete "What If" types of analyses. It was designed so that you can customize the forecast plan for your own business which will better prepare you when requesting funding from a financial or government institution

Value of this Forecast

An OPF can yield multiple benefits to the small business owner. First, the OPF is a valuable planning tool. Second, when the planning phase has been completed, the OPF becomes a key management tool in controlling the business operations to achieve the results planned for.

As a Planning Tool - The OPF enables the owner to develop a "preview" of the amount of profit or loss, which can be expected to be generated each month, for each quarter, and for the business year - based on reasonable predictions of monthly levels of sales, costs, and expenses. By having a "preview" of future operations the owner can compare, ahead of time, the year's expected profit or loss against profit goals and needs established for the business. If the results as forecasted are not satisfactory, there is time to identify what must be done in order to achieve satisfactory results for the year.

As a Control Tool - A completed Forecast enables the owner-manager to compare the figures for the actual results, as they become known, with the estimated or "targets" projected for that month. Where the results are out of line, steps can be taken to correct undesired deviations. By being able to see quickly where the trouble is, less time and money will be lost in getting back on track towards overall profit goals.

Limitation Regarding Cash Flow - Valuable as the Forecast is both as a business planning tool and as a management tool for controlling the business, the Forecast does not provide information about cash. Profits and cash are not the same thing. In order to project the firm's future cash requirements- as well as project the amount of cash it will have available to meet those requirements-it will be necessary to complete a separate schedule specifically designed for that purpose. (See SBA Form 1100, titled "Monthly Cash Flow Projection.") However, monthly estimates of sales, cost of sales, and expenses, needed for a cash flow projection can be easily obtained from this Forecast once it is completed.

Industry "Averages" - In starting the estimating process it may be desirable to enter into the "Industry Percentage" column of the Forecast, the average operating percentages for your industry. These percentages may be obtained from various sources such as Trade Associations, accountants, or banks. Also, the reference librarian in your nearest public library can refer you to appropriate documents containing the percentage figures. Industry "averages" can serve as a useful benchmark against which to compare cost and expense estimates being developed for your firm. Later, they will be useful for comparing the firm's actual operations.

Developing the Estimates - To get the most out of an Operating Plan Forecast, estimates should be developed for each operating element (sales, cost of sales, and expenses) for each month of the firm's operating year. When a firm's business cycle covers more than twelve months, or where special factors influencing the firm's activities will not properly be reflected during that period-example, long term construction projects-the Forecast should be extended for the appropriate additional period.

NBA Operating Plan Forecast (OPF) is FREE to NBA Members!
