Regulation of various forms of commercial financing remains a priority for state legislatures and regulators in 2021, as small business lenders (and other providers of commercial financing to small businesses) find themselves potentially subject to new state laws and increased regulatory scrutiny. These developments have the potential to change how the industry operates in multiple jurisdictions, including California and New York, whether in the context of commercial lending, merchant cash advances or other commercial financing arrangements.

  • Recent enforcement activity targeting merchant cash advance companies
  • Commercial finance disclosure laws in California and New York 
  • Other state efforts to regulate the commercial finance industry
