Because of the financial market fast development between Taiwan and Mainland China, commercial banks, sometimes, cannot have an efficient method to investigate loan credentials for small and medium enterprises. Without efficient methods, commercial banks are forced to undertake the unnecessary default risks. The article chooses the behaviors of commercial banks between Mainland China and Taiwan to become study target. The purpose is to investigate the assessment method and influence factor of commercial banks toward small and medium enterprises for loan. Through modified Delphi approach and Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) in multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM), the article attempts to analyze the decision-making measure of loan for commercial banks toward small and medium enterprises. From the results of practical evidence, the loan assessment measure of commercial banks between Taiwan and Mainland China is quite different. During loan assessment, China commercial banks focus on the debt-paying ability; on the contrary, Taiwan commercial banks focus on profitability of enterprises. The practical approved result of the study has supplied the insufficient data for related study articles in the past. More, the study can also be an important reference for perform related tasks in Taiwan’s and China’s commercial banks.
