Chancellor announces new loans for small businesses
Small businesses will be eligible for ‘bounce back loans’ worth up to 25% of the company’s turnover, up to a maximum loan of £50,000.
The government will pay the interest on the loan for the first 12 months and the government will guarantee 100% of the loans.
The scheme will be available from Monday 4th May and the Chancellor said that there would be no forward looking eligibility tests but instead a ‘simple, quick, standard’ application form.
The loans will should reach businesses within 24 hours of approval.
