Bounce Back Loan Scheme
Closed to new applications
On 17 December 2020, the government announced that the final deadline for Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) applications would be on 31 March 2021, which means we’re no longer able to offer new loans.
If you’re an existing customer and your business is in need of financial support, we may have another product or service that might be suitable.
Also, as originally announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in September 2020, Pay As You Grow (PAYG) options will enable businesses due to start repaying their Bounce Back Loans to:
- request an extension of their loan term to 10 years from six years, at the same fixed interest rate of 2.5%
- reduce their monthly repayments for six months by paying interest only. This option is available up to three times during the term of their Bounce Back Loan.
- take a repayment holiday for up to six months. This option is available once during the term of their Bounce Back Loan.
Borrowers can use these options individually or in combination with each other, and remain responsible for repaying their Bounce Back Loan and fully liable for the debt. Borrowers should be aware that they will pay more interest overall if they use one or more of these options, and that the length of the loan will increase in line with any repayment holidays taken.
