SBA Small Business Size Standards: Employees or Revenues

The SBA assigns size standards for businesses based on North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes. Being considered a small business is important for SBA loan eligibility as well as procuring government contracts that require small business participation. In this article, we explore the SBA’s criteria for small business classification, which is determined by either the business’s employee count or  average revenues.


  • Businesses under $2.25M in annual revenues and 100 employees is a small business regardless of NAICS code
  • The SBA and all federal government agencies define small by the SBA’s Table of Small Business Side
  • For eligibility for an SBA loan or certain government contracts, the business must meet the SBA definition of small
  • Size definition is based on NAICS code and either employee count of annual average revenues.


The SBA’s Definition of a Small Business

To qualify as a small business according to the SBA, certain criteria must be met:

  • The business must be organized for profit.
  • It must have a place of business in the United States.
  • It must operate primarily within the U.S. or make a significant contribution to the U.S. economy through taxes, use of American products, materials, or labor.
  • The business must be independently owned and operated and not dominant in its field on a national scale.

The business must be under the revenue or employee sizes noted below as determined by the NAICS code assigned to that business.

Small businesses can take various legal forms, including sole proprietorships, partnerships, or corporations. The SBA’s definition considers industry-specific differences, particularly in terms of size standards.


Determining Small Business Size Standards

The SBA establishes size standards that align with NAICS. These size standards must be met to obtain SBA financing (SBA 7a loans or SBA 504 loans) or to obtain federal agency contracts earmarked specifically for small businesses. Vendors select NAICS codes that best match their business activities and then determine if their business meets the corresponding size standards. Below we have provided the table of all NAICS codes for convenient researching based on the March 2023 SBA Table of Small Business Size Standards report. The SBA provides a helpful Size Standards Tool to assist governmental agencies and businesses in determining small business status.

The Smallest Size Standards

The smallest maximum number of employees across all NAICS codes is 100, and the smallest maximum average revenues across NAICS $2.25 million. As a result, any business under $2.25 million in annual revenue and 100 employees meets the small business definition regardless of NAICS code.


Small Business Size Determination for SBA Loan Eligibility

Determining small business size is crucial for SBA loan eligibility. The SBA aims to support and provide resources to businesses that genuinely qualify as small, as defined by its size standards. Small businesses that meet these size standards gain access to a variety of SBA loan programs, including 7a loans, 504 loans, and microloans. Large business are not eligible for SBA loans.


Small Business Size Determination for Federal Government Procurements

When participating in federal government procurements, vendors must meet the small business size standard associated with the NAICS code designated by the contracting officer for that specific contract. It’s important to note that the NAICS code selected for the contract may not necessarily align with the vendor’s principal activity NAICS code. As long as the vendor meets the size standard for the procurement, it qualifies as a small business.


Employee Count vs. Average Revenues

On a per NAICS code basis the SBA determines small business size based on either the average number of full-time or part-time employees over the last 24 months or the average annual receipts over the past five years. If the business hasn’t been operational for five years, the average weekly revenue is multiplied by 52 to determine the average annual receipts. The choice between using employee count or average revenues depends on the specific NAICS code assigned to the industry.


Final thoughts

Determining whether a business is considered small by the SBA involves evaluating either employee count or average revenues, depending on the NAICS code associated with the industry. Vendors can use the SBA’s Size Standards Tool to assess their small business status accurately. Understanding the SBA’s size determination criteria is essential for businesses seeking an SBA loan, government contracts, or looking to take advantage of resources available exclusively to small businesses via the SBA.
