Affiliates Checklist

Affiliation: Affiliation occurs when one company or person has control, or the power to control another.  You (the applicant/awardee) must include the employees of its affiliates when determining whether your business has 500 employees or less. If you check one or more of the following, then you or your business may be affiliated with another.

This checklist is intended to serve as a guide only.  Please read SBA’s SBIR/STTR size regulations, FAQs, and compliance guide for further information on affiliation to determine whether you or your business have any affiliates.

Note:  Even if you are affiliated with another company, you would still be eligible for the SBIR program if your combined employees are 500 or less.
