In case you don’t know it, this transaction has been appearing in the bank statements of many companies over the last weeks.
But don’t worry, in fact, it’s something good.
Firstly, SBAD does not mean IS BAD, it means Small Business Administration while TREAS comes from TREASURY.
Do I have to pay it back?
The SBAD TREAS 310 Misc payment is an advance or subvention from the Small Business Administration (SBA or SBAD).
Take a look at our Accounting Services for Logistics Companies
Is that all I'll get?
No. The SBAD TREAS 310 Misc payment is the “advance” to the EIDL and it’s a grant or subvention.
The EIDL will be the total loan that you will have to pay in a 30 years period and it will be deposited within 2 to 3 weeks upon receiving the “grant”.
How to record the EIDL in my accounting system?
Recording these loans is as important as having access to them.
Here’s an example of how to post the EIDL.
Here's a list of the most common questions on this matter
Am I eligible for the EIDL?
SBA will begin accepting new Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance applications on a limited basis only to provide relief to U.S. agricultural businesses.
Agricultural businesses are now eligible as a result of the latest round of funds appropriated by Congress in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Agricultural businesses includes those businesses engaged in the production of food and fiber, ranching, and raising of livestock, aquaculture, and all other farming and agricultural related industries (as defined by section 18(b) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 647(b)).
SBA is encouraging all eligible agricultural businesses with 500 or fewer employees wishing to apply to begin preparing their business financial information needed for their application.

What's the difference between the EIDL "Grant" and the Loan?
The EIDL Grant…
…It’s free, it’s a help, a subvention or government support.
The EIDL Loan…
…It’s the payment portion received from de government that will have to be paid back with interest.
When will my EIDL loan be deposited?
Usually 2 to 3 weeks after receiving the grant.
Can I get the Grant without receiving the Loan?
No. If you apply for the EIDL you will receive both amounts in two different moments, anyway, if the loan is not necessary, you can pay it back as soon as you get it in one payment with no pre-payment penalty.
What's the difference between EIDL and PPP?
There’s a big difference which is important to understand.
Economic Injury Disaster Loan is exactly that. A loan delivered to business owners in the United States divided into two portions:
- The advance or grant, that is not to be paid back.
- The loan, has to be paid back at a 3.75% interest rate.
It means Payment Protection Program and it is another aid funded by the federal government.
This aid has only one purpose which is helping business owners keep their employees offering this money to keep salary payments and business running.
The PPP offers about 3 months’ worth of salaries. Although it’s also a loan if at least 75% of it is used to cover salary expenses, the load would be 100% forgiven in the future.
can I apply for EIDL and PPP at the same time?
However it’s important to consider the impact in your taxes from receiving both aids.
