  • UK Bounce Back Loan Scheme Launches
    HM Treasury's Bounce Back Loan Scheme has launched today. The scheme provides government guarantees for loans between £2,000 to £50,000 and will enable small businesses to apply for loans quickly and easily. The loans will also be subject to a flat interest rate of 2.5% and firms that have already taken out a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan of £50,000 are entitled to apply for it to be switched to the BBLS. HM Treasury has also published a Dear CEO letter addressed to accredited lenders describing the pricing and regulation of the BBLS and the interaction between the BBLS and the CBILS. Loans of £25,000 or less made under the BBLS will also fall outside the regulatory perimeter for the purposes of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.
