I have a sole proprietor software consultant business, and I am thinking of buying a small office because it would be a better investment than my current office rental. I was looking into loans for small businesses and found the CDC/504 loan.
The sba.gov web pages say "Generally, your business must create or retain one job for every $65,000 provided by the SBA". However, I do not plan on hiring employees in the foreseeable future. Do I count as one retained employee? Or as the proprietor, don't I count?
