The Government Have Introduced a Bounce Back Loan Scheme
The Bounce Back Loan scheme will help small and medium-sized businesses affected by coronavirus to borrow between £2,000 and £50,000.
The loan amount will be capped at 25% of turnover.
The government will guarantee 100% of the loan and there won’t be any fees or interest to pay for the first 12 months.
Loan terms will be up to 6 years. No repayments will be due during the first 12 months. The government will work with lenders to agree a low rate of interest for the remaining period of the loan.
The scheme will be delivered through a network of accredited lenders.
You can apply for a loan if your business:
- is based in the UK
- has been negatively affected by coronavirus
- was not an ‘undertaking in difficulty’ on 31 December 2019
You cannot apply if:
- you are already claiming under the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme.
The scheme will launch on 4 May 2020.
