SBA RIN: 3245-AH17 Publication ID: Fall 2022 
Title: Small Business Size Standards: Adjustment of Monetary Based Size Standards for Inflation 

In this final rule, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA or Agency) adjusts all monetary based industry size standards (i.e., receipts, assets, net worth, and net income) for inflation since the last adjustment in 2014. In accordance with its regulations in 13 CFR 121.102(c), SBA is required to review the effects of inflation on its monetary standards at least once every five years and adjust them, if necessary. In addition, the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 (Jobs Act) also requires SBA to conduct every five years a detailed review of all size standards and to make appropriate adjustments to reflect market conditions. This action will restore the small business eligibility of businesses that have lost that status due to inflation.
